Greetings and Salutations!
As 2009 winds down (I’ll recap 2009 in my next post), we are looking ahead to an exciting 2010.
GSA has a number of repeat clients that have planning their 2010 events - Southern Tire Mart, The Texas Rangers, and Sussek Machine have already put the wheels in motion and secured dates for their events. It will be our fifth year with Southern Tire Mart, our sixth year with The Texas Rangers, and our 14th year with Sussek Machine.
A little GSA trivia: Sussek Machine was our very first client back in 1996, and has brought in GSA every year for their holiday party. A big Thank You goes out to Sussek Machine four 14 awesome years of events!
So…what’s new at GSA for 2010? The first thing you may have noticed is the logo on our homepage. It’s still our circle logo with the three question marks, but it’s got a new slogan underneath it…”the games you want.” The reason for this change is to let everyone know that GSA has they games you want for your events, whether it’s something you’ve seen on television or something completely original. When it comes to game shows…if you want it, GSA has got it.
A big addition to GSA is the expansion of our Development Department. GSA has brought on Dan Berger as GSA’s VP of Development. Dan’s background in game show development, electronics, animation, and graphic design have already played a critical role in creating some exciting new game shows for our clients. Dan is currently working on a new television project that is being optioned for MyFamilyTV.
On the corporate side, GSA has given two our our signature shows a make-over. In our Quest for the Best game, we have changed the game play to incorporate the team scores from the audience response part of the game to carry over to the finale by adding video scoring to the Finale. It completely changes the dynamic of the game, allowing for a much more competitive game.
We have also created a more economical version of our Squares Light game show. We have upgraded our LED light panels to 46″ LCD video screens. Using this new technology, the printing of the celebrity names on foam core signage is no longer necessary. Instead, the celebrity names are displayed at the top of each monitor, with the X or O displayed underneath. This new system also allows for custom graphics to be displayed on the video screens for advertising and/or branding opportunities. Utilizing risers instead of the full 18′ grid, the Squares Light game show can fit into smaller ballrooms and conference centers. It also works with smaller budgets too. Take a look at the photo below for examples of the screens.
GSA is currently working on two new game shows for television, and four new game shows for casino promotions. I will post more on our TV work as things develop. As for the casino promotions, these will be interactive games that can be used as floor promotions and/or live shows. You can find more information about these game shows on our GSA Casino Promotions website (www.gsapromo.com).
That’s all for now! Until next time, keep on playing!!!
