This event was hosted by the Australian British Chamber of Commerce (ABCC), celebrating their first ever trivia night.
The event was held at Spaces Richmond, a co-working space with a unique interior design on Church Street. The co-working hub currently has over 250 office desks. They have just announced that two new Melbourne locations in the City will open in late 2018. Located at the Rialto and the T&G Building both on Collins Street.
We attended the event, with our friend and team-member Duncan Buchanan, the Director of Adept Research.
The event began a 6pm and ended at 9pm. The first hour, attendees arrived and had the opportunity to network with other attendees.
The trivia began at 7pm sharp where all attendees sat in their teams of 4 on a designated table and created a team name. There was about 20 teams who had signed up to attend the trivia night.
The trivia was run by a program called Quiz Meisters. Quiz Meisters is not your traditional trivia. The majority of the questions asked were based on multimedia either listening to a song, watching a video or looking at an image. As well as interactive questions where team members had to stand up and move around.
Quiz Meisters provided for a fun and exciting environment which was different to any other trivia we had participated in before. The layout of the event at Spaces Richmond also provided for a informal, spacious and relaxing tone to the night.
The catering for the event was excellent. The table filled with rice paper rolls, pork buns, chicken sandwiches, sausage rolls and corn fritters. We were able to take a plate to our table and eat throughout the event. The refreshments at the bar included beer, wine, champagne and soft drink.
Although there was an opportunity to network at the beginning of the night. It was not much of an official networking event as some attendees came to the trivia night in Richmond to just relax and enjoy a night of trivia.
