Google Home Training by Laqshya Live Experiences (India)

Being a relatively new product category altogether, consumers and front-line staff alike would have many questions. So if promoters were to be adequately informed, they needed to know the product first-hand. What Laqshya Live Experiences did was replicating the ‘Escape Room’ format on ground. Without prior notice, mobile phones and devices were taken away from the attendees before they entered the venue, and all exits sealed. The only way out of the event was by navigating the training with the help of Google Home.
