Charcuterie Chalet Showdown

A Custom On-Site Activation for Quick High Energy Interactions

The Charcuterie Chalet Showdown positions an expert chef head-to-head with an audience participant for a high-energy, emceed, culinary showdown. Highly performance/show-driven, this activation is well-suited to events with crowds of potential spectators. Ideal duration of 1 hour, with multiple short and punchy challenges to allow audience to engage for anywhere from 5-60 minutes of unique entertainment. Utilizing classic charcuterie board elements, competitors must race to complete the best โ€œcharcuterie chaletโ€ – aka savory gingerbread house – while surmounting various hurdles, including โ€œno hands,โ€ โ€œblindfolded,โ€ and more!

Case Study: Fancy Food Show at the NYC Javitz Center

Problem: Conference panels are boring! The Specialty Food Association hired us to produce something new and different featuring food trends, to engage grocery buyers and Deli Pavilion booth exhibitors and sponsors at their annual Fancy Food Show high-volume conference at the NYC Javitz Center.

Solution: We developed the Charcuterie Chalet Showdown to be positioned in the Deli Pavilion , featuring meat and cheese company products in a unique and innovative way. We had a host pass out samples as competitors used them and talked about their unique product characteristics.

Results: The 1-hour activation pulled in a consistent crowd of people around the event, Many guests took photos and videos of the entertainment and also audience members participated as contestants competing for a “cash” prize. Sponsoring companies were pleased with the showcasing of their products in a new and innovative setting.
