Many entertainment activities have been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. To avoid crowded gatherings, entertainment activities such as karaoke, concerts, cinemas, nightclubs, award ceremonies, etc., cannot be carried out as usual, which undoubtedly challenged the entertainment industry. However, we have to believe that we can turn things around if we don’t give up.
The Customer Story that shared with you this time is the successful example of Greater Bay Media Entertainment (GBME), which survived the epidemic.
Simon Wilson, founder and Managing Director of Greater Bay Media Entertainment (GBME). He was born in Dublin, Ireland, currently based in Hong Kong. He has been involved in the inception, development, and deployment of world-class events in different regions, and is used to working with MasterChef, Top Gear, and other brands. GBME is an award-winning entertainment production company dedicated to providing an exciting, pioneering, and timely media and entertainment experiences platform for the Greater Bay Area and beyond.
Space to Play, Room to Breathe
” When the pandemic pummelled the entertainment industry, we knew the market was hungry for an outlet. Meanwhile, our partners grew eager to reach consumers.
As others hunkered down, we leveraged the full capabilities of our network to launch a COVID-responsible entertainment offering ” Simon said.
What does ” COVID-responsible entertainment” mean? GBME’s entertainment includes The Lawn Club, The Grounds, and Summer at The Wheel. They provide the atmosphere of a large-scale event and the security and intimacy of a private gathering and create a good place for both epidemic prevention and having fun.
The Grounds separate the open meadow into more than 100 elegant and comfortable private pods, 1.5 meters apart each pod. The Grounds also features giant LED screens, a state-of-the-art sound system, and a high-tech stage for optimal visual and auditory entertainment. Under the premise of safety and hygiene, GBME carries out daily activities that cannot be experienced during the epidemic, such as watching movies, doing yoga, enjoying stage performances, and listening to music outdoors.
There are great venues and facilities, as well as great food and hospitality. With Simon’s roots in hospitality experiences, he also creates The Lawn Club to arrange the food, games, and live performances, such as DJs and live bands. To reduce close contact and maintain environmental hygiene, The Lawn Club also adopted a contactless ordering method and carried out regular and comprehensive disinfection to meet epidemic prevention standards. In addition, Summer on the Wheel is perfect for family entertainment, including carnival games, prizes, street performers, and quirky social media selfie installations.
These innovative and flexible entertainment “products” make GBME special and allow them to continue their activities despite the severe epidemic.
