Event Information

This great business simulation finds out which team can run the best wine bar. Every team has the same information and the same opportunities – but how will they each react?

In this extremely popular and entrepreneurial game, teams enjoy running a wine bar from scratch, taking out a loan to cover the lease and refurbishment of the premises. During the course of the simulation, teams need to plan a layout; set the prices; choose a promotion style and budget; decide on the number of staff and what to pay them. They have to run their business on a weekly basis and complete a simple decision form, which is fed into the computer. This gives them the results of their trading for that week. Any decision made in one week can be changed the next, so teams need to analyse their results carefully. Are sales low because of high prices, poor staff, limited spend on promotions or because they are not serving cocktails and coffee?
