David loves to network and decided TeamBonding should be an exhibitor at one of the largest networking events in New York, The Event Planner Expo in early October. Mark and Kevin were excited to demo one of our most popular events, Ice Sculpting. Little did they know, David was going to show up too!
We asked him a few questions about his experience at the Expo.
I actually saw mention of the Expo on a friend’s Linkedin profile and then found the site, read about the attendees and the exhibitors as well as the location. I thought it would be worth exhibiting to see many of our New York clients, as well as meet new ones!
Who was your favorite speaker?
I had the pleasure of meeting, Amy Landino, who I really enjoyed talking to about how important video is for online presence. I was also able to relate to the event stories shared by speakers Lauren Goldberg and Daniela Grafman.
How does it feel to see your team in action?
I was thrilled to see Mark, our Master Ice Sculptor share his passion with booth attendees, who were able to experience carving ice for the first time. It was a proud moment to witness Kevin recognize and be recognized by clients like the New York Jets, who he facilitated an event for. You can read more about that experience here.
Did you discover anything new at this Expo?
Well, yes, not a professional find but I discovered Du’s donuts, which was almost worth the price of admission!
What was your favorite part of the whole day?
I think learning tips and tricks at the Spin Ping Pong was great fun and meeting the people at one of the locations where we take the Mystery Bus too was really fun!
How was your overall experience?
The speakers+ parties + the Expo = a good combination and high-quality exhibitors and attendees. I would definitely go again and have a TeamBonding exhibit. I am looking forward to what we can demo next year!
Effective relationship management is at the core of everything successful businesses do. If a company can establish a great working relationship with its employees, the result is more productivity, greater employee retention, and a winning culture where everyone is in lockstep and focused on accomplishing the goals of the business.
COVID-19 has forced companies across the country to adopt new ways of working. Many of those processes and structures may be worth keeping for the long haul—and not purely for the sake of employees’ health and safety.

Gone are the days when employees were supposed to deliver their duties at their workplace without expecting anything more than remuneration in return. Today, a lot more than simple labor commitment is expected from an employee. They need to connect emotionally and with the organization’s goal. This emotional connection engages employees at their workplaces and ultimately results in improved efficiency and performance. Did you know that 60% of workers would be more productive if they felt happy at work? Studies prove that better-engaged employees bring organizations benefits in the form of higher customer satisfaction levels, improved productivity, and greater profits.
EXPOS and Trade Shows this year have gone virtual! Nevertheless, we have an exciting line-up and we are ready to demo some of our most popular virtual programs. Our team is ready to bring the fun to these events across the country virtually, and more to come.
In 2019, Research and Markets forecasted that the online education market will reach $230 billion by 2025, and given the impact of COVID-19, it’s likely that online learning will see even greater growth than previously expected.
No matter your company’s size or industry, your employees are one of your greatest assets. And it’s in your best interest to keep them happy—apart from the ease of a positive work culture, strong team dynamics deepen trust, foster communication, and improve collaboration.
Equally important to remote team productivity and team building is appreciating and celebrating your remote team. How do you celebrate success at work? How do you wish a co-worker a happy birthday? Congratulate them on getting married, or a new addition to the family? Have a night out after work? Working remotely has changed these things and it’s not as easy to celebrate with them, or thank them for their hard work. Thinking outside the box is necessary.
Remote workers have become a valuable asset for many businesses. The ability to cooperate with anyone around the world means that you’ll be able to find great talent than if you would search just locally. You may have found incredible remote employees but do they know that you value them?
