Peter Kobayashi said he wanted to avoid hearing cheesy excuses from his employees during the World Cup.

“I knew we had to come up with something to make it a productive time in the office.”

So, the Adbloc Media partner decided to uproot his company to a pub during the World Cup games.

“We figured out what infrastructure we’d need so we could still do whatever we would in our regular office,” he said.

The company has a space reserved in the corner of the Bier Markt, where they set up laptops, scanners and even a portable printer.

“Then we invited clients to join us and give them a spot where they could hook up to our infrastructure.”

So far, 15 different clients have come to see the spot.
