Australian company delivers trivia nights to the world
Brisbane , Queensland - 30/03/05
How do you host a trivia night in New York , Tokyo , Vancouver , or Wagga Wagga? Brisbane internet trivia company, 3 Streets Trivia, is providing the answers to trivia hosts all over the world. When 3streetstrivia.com began charging for online quiz packages in January 2005, sales started pouring in immediately. Before the months end, the biggest trivia site in the world, Fun Trivia Company, approached them with an offer too good to refuse. The Boston-based company was so impressed with the ‘create your own trivia' style of package that they wanted to sell 3 Streets Trivia packs from the home page of their website. After only one month in business, 3 Streets Trivia were selling quizzes on the ‘number one' trivia site in the world! ( www.3streetstrivia.com )
It began as a discussion over a few drinks at a local trivia night. Sian Rodgie and Matthew Pascoe had been team-mates at Monday night trivia for over a year. Sian was a part-time events coordinator, hosting trivia nights at another pub on Wednesdays, and Matt had been developing interactive children's software in Japan and Brisbane . ‘We felt there was a definite worldwide market for a product that lets customers put a quiz package together in a matter of minutes. Its designed for people wanting to host a corporate event, a pub quiz, a charity benefit or just wanting to test their skills at trivia' Mr. Pascoe said.
The ‘Trivia Wizard' developed by Mr. Pascoe is a world first in interactive materials delivery . No other quiz company provides a package where customers can choose questions specific to the country they live in; choose the style and size of their quiz; select rounds in specific categories; as well as change their questions, randomly selected from a massive database. Customers can also add their own questions to personalise their event.
Terry Ford from Fun Trivia Company believes ‘it's easy to use, and lets a potential customer invest a little time in something. By the time they get to the checkout they've almost GOT to buy it, because they've created something they really like.'
‘It still amazes me every day to think that someone in Texas, wearing boots and a big hat, or someone in Kent, with a perfect English accent, or someone in Tokyo, at a Karaoke Bar, is hosting one of our trivia nights, reading out our questions.' Ms. Rodgie said.
The name, ‘3 Streets Trivia', is trivial in itself. The word ‘Trivia' comes from the Latin ‘Trivium' which was the junction of 3 streets in ancient Rome , where toga clad residents went to discuss ‘all matters trivial'.
