Fortnite Takeover

In the midst of a wildly successful Fortnite launch, Epic Games and production partner, FGPG enlisted the support of Elevate Staffing. Elevate was responsible for finding enthusiastic, fun loving, tech savvy staff to facilitate a Fortnite takeover across a number of industry events including, GDC, E3, PAX West, and Twitchcon.

What We Did

Elevate on-boarded a team of energetic brand ambassadors to oversee a plethora of activation spaces including, the Lazy Links mini golf course, the Electronic Llama, the BattleBus and Esports competitions. Elevate Brand Ambassadors encouraged guests to roam the space and take advantaged of all activities being offered in the Fornite footprint(s).

How We Did It

Elevate focused on recruiting staff who were passionate, tech savvy, and energetic to support this lively campaign. Through one-on-one screenings, followed by phone interviews, staff were selected based on their passion, previous experience and the level of enthusiasm there were able to communicate and exude, not only during the interview phase(s), but also during onsite training.


How we succeeded

Fortnite’s Battle Royale game experienced huge success, and that was brought to life through the power of live activation, supported by Elevate Staffing Event Managers and Brand Ambassadors, across many major tech events in 2018. The success of 2018 has been instrumental in securing another year of partnership.

The Elevate team are absolute professionals and their staff have become a memorable aspect of the Oculus demo experience. Elevate has done more than provide staff. They have worked tirelessly with us to grow a program that is now a critical part of the Oculus organization.

After working with multiple staffing agencies, we reached out to Elevate and stopped looking elsewhere. As a key growth driver of our national program, the event staff Elevate provides are head and shoulders above the competition.

Finding the right Glory Girls on a global scale was hugely integral to our consumer engagement activities. Elevate helped us find the right staff that were so much more than promo girls – they learned, lived and breathed the brand, which translated to natural and amazing outreach.

In the highly competitive world of experiential staffing, Elevate stands head and shoulders above other agencies. Elevate are much more than just a supplier, they are a strategic partner whose expertise is invaluable for running effective, efficient and successful campaigns.

Working with Elevate for over two years has been an absolute pleasure. From the internal team with whom we work on a nearly daily basis to grow our business and develop and oversee programming; to the external brand ambassador and demo specialist teams who are unconditionally passionate about Oculus VR.

Talon Beesch, Marketing, Oculus


I have been extremely impressed with the work that Elevate have carried out for us. The quality of the Staff they have is fantastic, as is their ability to deliver every time. Elevate always save the day, especially on briefs that are often not straightforward and require a bit of “outside the box” thinking.

Leigh Williamson, Project Director, Vision Nine


I have never worked with a more professional, hardworking and effective team in my 20 years of events. Elevate is brilliant… they delivered way-way past what was expected & made my life super easy.

Greg Sharpe, Senior Producer, Frukt


Our COGS Awards event is always pretty full on, but this year Elevate Staffing provided incredible staff who not only wowed our guests, but made the run of show better than ever. When it comes to event staffing agencies, not all are created equal!
