The Full House Project

The little things that make the big difference to your weekly poker tournament

May 25, 2018
Poker is a proven way to increase visitation and spend at your venue. Poker is ‘everyone’s game,’ welcoming guys and girls, young and old, from all walks of life. No matter who you are, it’s an even slate with all players starting with the same chips and two cards.  What better way to foster a more diverse crowd within your venue? For years Australian pubs and clubs have leveraged the popularity of this highly accessible and inclusive game to add atmosphere to what may have historically been a quite night. It is imperative you go with a good provider who offers great Tournament Directors and a fantastic event structure to compliment your venue to ensure you see poker players surging into your venue. There is no doubt that a good poker provider will bring new patrons into your venue week after week, which is always exciting to see. BOOST YOUR SPORTS BAR WITH THE SPORTSPICK GAME ZONE! This is only half the battle, though. The offerings and hospitality you provide to your patrons during your poker event are even more important than event structure or big prize pools! We’ve been working on adding poker to our 22 Tips Series. I couldn’t wait to get something out while the graphic designer puts the finishing touches on it. If you’re keen to give your poker event that special touch this week then the below tips should be great place to start. Give a few of them a crack this week and take another step towards your venue becoming the social hub of your community. MEAL DEALS Offering a meal deal before or during your poker event is a great way to boost bistro sales during the event. Plenty of players will arrive early for a value meal and a couple of drinks if you offer an early bird special or a meal deal during the registration period. Make sure to promote this meal deal in advance, especially on social media. ATMOSPHERE While poker is an exciting event guaranteed to bring patrons together in a spirited contest there is still plenty you can do to keep the atmosphere buzzing. Make sure popular live sports are being broadcast, provide a microphone so your TD can keep everyone up to date with the progress of the event or even consider playing some classic tunes to keep the energy up! FIND OUT HOW QUIZZAME IS BRINGING HAPPY POSITIVE PEOPLE INTO AUSSIE VENUES! TABLE SERVICE Table service is a guaranteed way to increase spend in your venue during your poker event. Often players are so caught up in the action they don’t get a chance to get to the bar for a drink. Have a member of your bar staff roving around collecting orders and delivering drinks and you will see your bar takings increase dramatically.  This also gives your bar staff a greater opportunity to create better relationships with the players and increases the probability of a return visit.

What actually drives patrons into pubs and clubs?

May 17, 2018
A popular pub in my local area closed its doors in 2014. Sitting on a prime block of land overlooking the bay, the owners made the decision to sell up. The time had come to clear the way for redevelopment – a multi-story apartment complex. That was the plan. What the new developer hadn’t counted on was the uproar that erupted on social media, in local newspapers and in front of the venue itself once the news went public. Were the local community upset they couldn’t get their hands on the pub’s cheap beers? No. Were they annoyed to see the end of the Tuesday Night Parma Special? No. What flooded the pages of Facebook were stories of good times had over the years. Stories of relationships formed. Friendships galvanised. Stories of life partners who had met and fallen in love. People reminisced about the human connections they had formed with one another. They remembered how they felt inside that building. And they lamented the loss of a place to connect within their local community. A place to share experiences with old friends. To grow connections with new ones. This was much more than mourning a favourite watering hole. A well organised campaign was formed by the community to oppose the use of “their venue” in this way. The group sold stickers. Sold t-shirts. Raised funds. Rallied local politicians. Such was the impact of this venue on their lives that they felt compelled to express their disappointment at the proposal. Four years later they still do. And the doors and windows of our local pub remain boarded up while the fight for its future continues. HAS YOUR VENUE CAUGHT ONTO THE GAME SHOW CRAZE? CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE This is not a unique story. Similar versions of this story have occurred hundreds of times all over the country. Watching the reaction this event generated reminded me of something important. Something at the core of the hospitality industry. Something bigger than good food and cold beer. It’s this; Pubs and clubs exist to be the social hub of a community. Have a little think about that. This is what patrons expect from their local pub or club. It’s what has built the culture over more than a century and a half. These establishments are the places that families gather to eat and celebrate. It’s a place where friends meet up to hang out and share stories. Where groups of people come to be entertained. Where sports are viewed and wakes are held. This is the essence of why people attend a pub or club, and why these venues are at the core of our national identity. More and more our social interactions are being found online. We’re turning to the internet for music, sports, friendship and romance. And we’re all a little poorer for it. The hospitality industry and its suppliers hold the key to turning the tide on this cultural shift, or at very least slowing it down. We
