Case Study: Kuehne Nagel Summer Festival 2017

This year PLANIT Events had the pleasure of planning Kuehne Nagel’s summer festival party 2017. It was split into two summer events: one on the 19th of August and one on the 26th of August 2017. The first summer party took place in the Crowne Plaza Dublin with 155 adults and 120 children in attendance. The second summer party took place in Fota Island Resort in Cork with 160 adults and 100 children.


The Event Planning Activities

Both summer events were action packed with lots of activities for all who attended. There was a movie zone, where children watched movies and munched on freshly made popcorn from the popcorn machine. After all, no movie zone is complete without a popcorn machine. There was a Virtual Reality station that proved to be very popular with both children and adults. PLANIT offered two different virtual experiences. The first virtual experience was a flying experience and then a ninja moves experience. It was very entertaining to watch the attendees try and dodge anything that was virtually thrown at them. We also had a retro arcade games area with various games such as Pac Man and Mario Kart in them. Hook-a-duck was also super popular with the children where if they hooked a duck with the number four on it they won a prize. We also had a magician who was quite the trickster! As well as a Punch and Judy puppet show, and bouncy castles.

PLANIT has really realised how important well being is in our workplace and in the workplace of our clients. So this year we made sure that there was a wellbeing area included in the event planning for our attendees. The area had a manicurist station, a tarot card reader, festival style glitter and tattoos and a masseuse. We also had a rodeo and limbo challenge for the adults which brought a lot of laughter to the event.

The Event Style


The event was a summer festival party. The room was dressed with a blue back drop with a white cloud display. There were light and navy blue balloons on each table, sticking to the Kuehne Nagel brand colours. The festival theme was seen throughout the room where we had tables with fake grass and daisies on them. The catering was a beautiful BBQ with amazing salads and desserts to accompany them.


It was a fantastic 2 days with Kuehne Nagel and PLANIT can’t wait for next year already!
