Richmond Electrical Wholesale Case Study

Casino Night for 80 Staff & Suppliers.

Richmond Electrical Wholesale (REW) is a leading distributer for a wide range of electrical and security products, with outlets in Finglas and Ballymount in Dublin. Privately owned and family run, the company has been established for over 40 years. REW sets great store on customer service: it invests heavily in staff training, and has its own transport fleet to guarantee next day deliveries.

REW wanted to hold a special event to reward staff for their hard work throughout the year, plus improve company morale and co-operation through team building. The company also wished to invite key suppliers, and was therefore keen to do something that would leave a positive impression on everyone who attended. The company approached the Hijack Events team about the different options, and having discussed REW’s goals and aims, it was decided to hold a Casino Night.

The Casino Night took place in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, with some 80 people in attendance. The evening’s entertainment featured a professional roulette wheel with croupier, Blackjack, and the “Play your cards right” game. As well as decorating the venue and organising the games and prizes, the Hijack Events team took charge of the music and DJ, with Q102 presenter Dave Harrington on hand to act as MC for the night.

The Casino Night proved to be a highly enjoyable evening’s entertainment for REW’s staff and suppliers. REW appreciated that the Hijack Events team took complete responsibility for the night from start to finish, allowing staff to sit back and enjoy themselves. Feedback from the suppliers who attended was also universally positive.

The Casino Night with REW illustrates Hijack Events’ ability to deliver successful and enjoyable corporate events for all sizes of company, from privately owned SME’s right through to large multinationals. As well as the Casino experience, other themes include Hollywood, the Great Gatsby, Carnival, Las Vegas, Masquerade Ball, Virtual Reality and Oscar Nights.
