Company Picnics are Back – As the economy gets back on it’s feet, and with unemployment making a welcome return to early-2008 levels, companies are allocating more of their budget to employee appreciation gatherings and team building events. When the Global Financial Crisis took place, company picnics and holiday parties were the first of many age-old business traditions to be cut.
We recently delivered a 40 x 180 ft. frame tent accompanied by 1,800 brown folding chairs and 225 tables to Commerce Bank Ballpark in Harrisburg, PA, where the Harrisburg Senators baseball team play their home games. The delivery required 5 trucks and 6 experienced people who arrived on site at 8:00 AM and were finished setting up in a little over 6 hours. The Senators maintenance crew performed the table and chair setup, finishing in 2 hours, just in time for the event that started at 7:00 PM. Following the picnic was an exciting ballgame where the Senators took on the Trenton Thunder, and won 2-0.
