Company: Owens Corning, manufacturer of roofing supplies
Date: February 15th, 2017
Purpose: Educational seminar presented by Owens Corning to their roofing contractor customers.
Last October, Owens Corning hosted a group of 70 at Bluegrass Indoor Karting, experiencing high attendance and positive feedback. So when they decided to do it again, 110 people showed up! This was the largest group BIK had yet entertained in terms of a corporate event so we had to get a little crafty. We turned our track into a classroom with a projector, sound system, and appropriate lighting. This simple makeover allowed all attendees to meet in one area.
We welcomed guests with an assortment of breakfast options including bagels, pastries, donuts, juice, and lots of coffee before heading to the track for the presentation and meeting. Afterward, several of our BIK staff members headed to the track to transform the business-related production into our indoor karting safety briefing – going over track safety rules, lights & flags, and, of course, encouraging all the smack talk that we can!
As we finished up the briefing, a lunch buffet was found hot and ready. After eating, attendees took their turns heading to the track, striking the cue ball in our newly added Billiard Room, or perusing the vendor booths set up around the lobby encompassing various aspects of the Owens Corning company.
After about 2.5 hours of racing, we ran our FINAL CHAMPIONSHIP RACE where we were able to place our top 3 drivers of the day on our podium, granting them their hard-earned, ultimate bragging rights.
John Sabbak, the Area Sales Manager at Owens Corning, and event host, is an inspiring collaborator. He has a positive and encouraging attitude and loves improving morale through team-building. John believes that throwing fun in the mix is a key part of his, and his customers’, success. Working with John and his team at Owens Corning is a pleasure, and we eagerly anticipate the next time we are granted the opportunity to make their visit even better!
