Wheelbarrows brimming with cold craft beer and bubbly, a pair of gorgeous wellness therapists, custom Nitro icy poles, and a club DJ helped transform Nitro’s Australian office into the ultimate relax zone. The occasion? Nitro Unwind – a very special event for IT professionals in Melbourne.
The red orange carpet was rolled out for an evening of fun and just a smidge of work. With a happy drink in one hand and a canapé in the other, some guests veered towards “hot desks” set up with Nitro Pro flash demos – showcasing our latest release and giving Nitronauts a chance to talk to IT pros about their favourite features.
However, it was all play as ten IT professionals stepped up to compete in Nitro’s first IT Olympics. Events included CAT cable untangling, paper sheet guessing, and wombat juggling. All IT Olympians were geared up with Nitro gym bags filled with drink bottles and tees, while the victorious champion enjoyed the addition of the grand prize – a Sonos Play:3 wireless music system.
As Nitronauts and guests got serious about unwinding (with a little extra help from on-site massages and grooming services), those who were strangers moments before let loose and threw friendly arms across each other shoulders as they played at our photo booth.
Nitro Unwind ended on a high as everyone came away with big smiles and a fresh perspective on IT professionals (whoever said they were boring?). Our favourite moments are shared in our Facebook album, and we hope to bring #nitroUnwind to a city close to you soon.
