Case Study – IRi Worldwide


Charlotte contacted The Fun Experts to explain their current predicament – one that has become increasingly shared by businesses across the country – and to see what solution could be provided.

“…our employees really look forward to our summer event so doing it virtually has become a challenge and the pressure is on!’ Can you help?

Already intending to hold the event virtually, their aim was simple – to bring each and every one of their team members together to share in a moment of fun that would have long lasting, positive effects.


With 176 employees signed up to the event (the highest uptake Charlotte has EVER had BTW), The Fun Experts were all set to provide ‘Party’ themed Fun Boxes: the plan would see the Fun Boxes shipped out direct to each individual (All of this takes place on The Fun Experts side so no need for Charlotte to concern herself sorting this out…all she needed to do was provide all the address).

With a date set and the e-vites sent, the excitement was building for the online event.  It would see everyone gather virtually to open their individual box at the same time and celebrate together! The bespoke party boxes had Bunting, whistles, sunglasses, glow sticks, a sweet treat and a little alcoholic beverage (and non alcoholic) for all the fun of a festival but in their own homes!

Making the event even more personal to IRI each Fun Box came with a branded festival wristband (a fabulous personal touch) which not only gave everyone that extra memento but is also a great reminder that IRi care about their people and about having fun!

The Fun Box was created during the 2020 UK lockdown to give a boost of fun to those who are faced with limited celebrations and social interaction. A solution that would promote engagement, nurture wellbeing, invigorate and inspire!  The Fun Box enables fun to be brought direct to everyones front door!

For IRi, the Fun Box solution certainly met the brief and purpose for their event and was appreciated by absolutely everyone, as  highlighted by the feedback and the photographs from the event: “The Fun Box was the most exciting part”; “Comedy & Singing and the Fun Box was the cherry on the cake”.

All in all, a fantastic experience for everyone involved!

‘I wanted to say thank you for everything! You have been an absolute pleasure to work with! We will definitely be working alongside you for our future events!
