1 - Make Sure the Game is Relevant

Some of the most popular racing arcade games include:

By introducing multiplayer machines into your business event, you can create a real sense of competition amongst your guests.

3 - Make Sure You Have The Space
Some people think arcade machines are small items but in reality, they aren't. If you decided to hire a pool table, for instance, then not only do you have to have room for the actual table but also space for players to move around to get their shot without being wedged against a wall or, even worse, poking someone in the back with a pool cue.

Arcade cabinets are more suitable for space restrained venues although if you're opting for a racing game or shooting game, these can often take up twice the amount of space to cater for two players. Always consider your options and requirements before choosing which game to hire.

4 - Know Your Audience
If you're running a marketing event, industry expo or product launch, then you will surely know the demographic of your expected audience.

If your event will attract visitors of all ages then you can't go wrong with a driving game that all the family can enjoy, or why not a retro arcade like Space Invaders or Pac-Man. A shooting game like House of the Dead will no doubt scare youngsters but Point Blank, a child-friendly shooting arcade game from Namco, will provide suitable fun for all the family.

Similarly, a dance machine might not go down too well at an event tailored to motorcycle-mad men aged 18-30 but a motorcycle racing arcade game would.

Get the most out of your event by deciding very carefully who your target audience is.
