With $100,000 on the line, TBS’s new hit show GO-BIG SHOW showcases supersized talents on a scale never before seen on television with a cast of all-star celebrity judges Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Nettles, Rosario Dawson and Cody Rhodes. Featuring monster truck flipping, rattlesnake wrangling and other incredible feats, the program celebrates daring acts alongside personal, behind-the-scenes stories from challengers as they battle head-to-head to impress the show’s panel of judges and advance toward the finale’s ultimate prize.

“As the largest sports bar in the country, Buffalo Wild Wings can deliver BIG flavors to fans of the GO-BIG SHOW, and the opportunity partner with TBS on its new show was a no-brainer,” said Chad Glidewell, Director of Sports Marketing and Partnerships, Buffalo Wild Wings. “This is a great partnership between two preeminent experience brands that allows us to enhance the at-home viewing experience of our guests while they watch the GO-BIG SHOW.”

There’s only one meal big enough when the GO-BIG SHOW debuts on January 7 at 9 p.m. ET and that’s the Buffalo Wild Wings GO-BIG BUNDLE, featuring 20 traditional wings, 20 boneless wings and fries for just $39.99. This bundle is available nationwide at all participating sports bars.

“In celebration of TBS’s new hit extreme competition series GO-BIG SHOW, BWW went BIG and created the Go-Big Bundle at all of their sports bars,” said Telmo Tebuas, SVP Brand Marketing for TBS. “One of the most unique aspects of Go-Big Show was the energy from the audience of tailgaters that were outside the coliseum every night as we were filming. This partnership allows all of our fans to join the tailgate fun and watch from the comfort of their own homes. At TBS, we believe you have to Go-Big or go home and, with the Go-Big Bundle, our fans can enjoy the most extreme talent competition ever with friends and family.”

BizBash: What Went Wrong at the Now-Infamous Hamptons Drive-In Concert?

Posted by | News | No Comments

Videos from last month’s Safe & Sound benefit appeared to show attendees ignoring social distancing protocols. Event pros discuss what they think went wrong—and how to prevent it in the future.

By Claire Hoffman

A few weeks ago, the event industry drew headlines for all the wrong reasons. What started as a drive-in fundraiser concert with a number of thorough safety measures ended with viral videos of crowding and front-row guests without masks, appearing to break the state of New York’s social distancing regulations. The Department of Health has since launched an ongoing investigation into the July 25 “Safe & Sound” benefit in the Hamptons, 
and Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeted that he was “appalled.” 

Before the event, BizBash caught up with the organizers to discuss the safety measures put in place for the 500 car—or 2,000 guest—gathering, which included a concert from The Chainsmokers. Steps included pre-event health questionnaires, and mask and hand sanitizer giveaways for every guest. There were hand-sanitizing stations in every row, bathrooms that were disinfected every 10 minutes, and an on-site physician performing temperature checks. The amount of security was tripled to more than 80 guards, and concertgoers purchased reserved parking zones that were designed for four to six people per car and spaced six feet apart.

So what exactly went wrong here—and how can it be prevented in the future, when these types of drive-in events continue to grow in popularity? To find out, we chatted with six top event pros from throughout North America. Here are their takes.

Cara Kleinhaut, founder and CEO, AGENC Experiential & Digital Marketing, New York and Los Angeles
“What is devastating to us as professionals is we are collectively responsible for reviving our decimated industry. We will be held up to a microscope with everything we do, like it or not. So we have a collective obligation to make sure we are putting every single best practice forward when planning [events] in this age of pre-vaccine COVID. They must be safe. Many of us have gone to great lengths to become COVID-safety certified, stay in close contact with local officials and health experts to make sure our spaces are safe, and publishing best practice manuals. We do not take this lightly. If we are going to do it, we better do it right. 

From what we saw in the Hamptons, despite their best-laid plans on paper, they did not enforce social distancing, mask-wearing, and other very basic safety measures. Enforcement is key, as human nature will always be to push the rules and revert to old behavior and entitlement of what we feel we should be able to do. Where that event failed was in communication from the stage that the behavior needed to stop or else they were going to have to shut down.

That said, I have seen this done correctly—for example, at the Rose Bowl for RuPaul’s Drag ‘n Drive. The cars were properly spaced, masks were worn, and if people tried to gather the security teams immediately redirected people back to their vehicles. The cost for increased enforcement will be higher, but it’s an investment in our collective health and our responsibility as professionals to show how this can be done properly.”

Justin Lefkovitch, founder and CEO, Mirrored Media, Santa Monica, Calif.
“We were so disappointed to see the mismanagement exhibited by all associated with the event, especially when so many of us in the events industry are doing all that we can to prepare a roadmap for in-person events in the age of COVID-19. 

Echoing the response from our colleagues, we need to do it right, or don’t do it at all. Each and every event and producer represents the industry as a whole. The actions of this particular group will, unfortunately, ripple into local communities and our industry. One act of irresponsibility has the potential to set the whole industry back at a time when we can least afford it. We all need to understand that what we do has a lasting effect not just in our state, but across the globe. It is our job to work within the best interests of our clients, our staff, our community, our industry, and most importantly our guests—while also keeping everyone safe. 

We must exhaust all resources to ensure the safety of our guests, with a focus on security. While checking temperatures is great, as we know, not all carriers have fevers. Masks and temperature checks are not enough when they are not supplemented by responsible social distancing and other protocol compliance.

Governments, brand sponsors, and the general public are less likely to trust legitimate events, regardless of careful preparation and attention to detail. Every time something like this or the Fyre Festival happens, the entire industry has to work harder and jump through even more hoops. Securing permits becomes more difficult, and regulations become even more strict. We have worked tirelessly with local and state government to come up with safe and responsible guidelines to bring live events back to our community. For the sake of public health, our industry, and the future of live events, we hope that producers can work together to do it right, or not do it at all. Even when you think you’ve considered every aspect of an event, you need to have contingency plans for contingency plans.”
