Welcome to the PayPal Global Gathering!
The ‘PayPal Global Gathering’ was an extraordinary diverse cultural program catering to international cultures cross 52 different cities, unifying 26,000 employees across the world. It took place live across eight time-zone specific programmes over 24 hour in 13 countries.
Beginning in China, travelling through EMEA before reaching Ireland and the UK, across to the Americas, then easterly to PayPal Australia and Manila, before reaching India who danced the last dance in the East.
We designed and created 72 hours of content. Over 60 individual events were programmed and produced which included music, dance, magic and more. all beamed directly into employees homes. we researched and identified the very best cultural and innovative talent across the globe to achieve a credible & impactful creative program.
This experience was built on FUEL’s immersive platform VStage, showcasing multiple programme options across multiple stages with something for every culture to connect with.
An interactive chat box function was also available for employees to chat and leave comments and reactions using various emojis. Each employee was also sent a gift from a small PayPal powered business local from their area/region.
PayPal described this as “A moment in time for our Global Community”. An incredible 24 hours where all PayPal employees from all over the world came together for one night as one team, one office, one big All Together Gathering.
