The inauguration of the Warehouse was tweaked a little by re-creating the façade of the entrance door in theme colors. "Upon ribbon cutting, we had skateboarders coming up to deliver a high energy performance using various structures to celebrate the moment in a true sports and fitness brand style. Confetti blasts, mechanical opening of the main door and releasing of about 1500 customized balloons by these employees added hues and grandness to the Opening Ceremony," elaborated Prateek Nagpal, Client Services Lead, Toast Events.

The formal ceremony commenced in an indoor space featuring formal presentations and warehouse related AVs showcased to the employees.
Sports and fitness activities were carried out, from relay runs to a skateboarding workshop, box football to basketball shoot and Volleyball games, everyone had picked up a game or activity of their choice and were busy experiencing what the brand has been known for over the years.
Talking about the event flow, Nagpal, mentioned, "The buzz was right there and we could see each one of them so involved and participative from the start, be it the Opening Ceremony, Emcee Interaction sessions or the Outdoor Activities. We have had challenges on deciding how to keep employees engaged for the day initially but the idea of engaging them through Outdoor activities and do mini versions of these games helped us pull off a good engaging event. Our expertise and detailing on these activities took these sports sessions and activities to another level ensuring maximum participation which was well applauded by the client."
