it's business time
We've been running our own unique brand of corporate quiz for a decade now, so we know how to tread that fine line between challenging and fun. Our corporate shows are geared towards team-building; on bringing out your employees' social side without ever embarrassing anyone or making people look the fool. The foolery is where we come in, by serving you up a jam-packed quiz full of cross generational questions, our trademark whacky character-driven onscreen and interactive games, and last but not least the best trivia host that money can buy - handpicked from our team of brilliant emcees who have all been carefully auditioned and trained by us in the specialised area of corporate trivia.
A little nerdy, a lot of fun, and super-slick thanks to our incorporation of the latest iOS touchscreen technology, our professionalism and reliability over the years have seen us become the most trusted name in corporate trivia nationwide, with clients ranging from young and energetic initiatives like Slack, and Junkee Media all the way to respected high end multinationals like PwC, and Cricket Australia.

quiz night = cash night
Our multimedia pub shows are all about getting bums on seats in your venue (especially on those nights of the week that might otherwise be a tad on the slow side), and we know just how to do it. After all, we've been successfully running pub trivia all over Australia for a decade now.
Welcome to Thornbury (VIC), The Oxford Tavern (NSW), The Rosemount (WA), The Leicester (SA), and Newstead Brewing Co. (QLD) represent just a fraction of the vast spectrum of venues currently running Quiz Meisters trivia nationwide.
Why are we so popular? Because we don't just throw you some slapdash weekly Q&A, cash your cheque, and then hang out poolside cracking beers delivered by bikini-clad model wannabes with unspellable first names and questionable residency status. Even though that sounds like a lot of fun, and we probably deserve a holiday.
No, we have way too much to do, like helping you build a dedicated following of punters that will return to your venue week after week to play our irreverent onscreen games, and check in with the ridiculous cast of characters that has come to define us as the funniest, most creative, and most trusted trivia outfit around.
Opera Boy, Call Bruce, Pornstar or My Little Pony, Face Off with Nicholas Cage… These are just a few of the famous (or possibly infamous) segments guaranteed to get the crowds laughing, drinking, and coming back for more.
We even have a weekly Facebook question built into each and every pub quiz (for our 15k followers to bag some bonus points).
No other trivia company offers content that so perfectly captures the essence of pub culture (although occasionally our "competitors" do try to poach an idea or two). Nor will you find a bunch of guys anywhere in Australia who'll work as hard as we do to ensure that weekly content not only remains energised and surprising all year round, but that it's delivered expertly to punters by the very best trivia hosts out there, with the latest iOS touchscreen technology in their hands - no more clunky old DVD players.
We've been there and done that. In fact, we invented it. Time to move on.
Combine all this with the creative point-of-sale we offer to help you draw a crowd right from your very first show, and you've got a no-holds-barred, cracking night out that'll have them flocking. Because when it comes to pub trivia it's this simple: we're far and away the best there is.
If you want to see more of what we can do for your venue, check out these excellent pics or watch our Pub Quiz Promo Video. Hell, why not test your knowledge with this interactive show sample? Seen enough? Go ahead and get in touch directly. We reckon you'll be glad you did.
Work with us.
Do you feel at home in front of a crowd? Do you live for the smell of fresh parma, luke-warm ale, and the sweet, sweaty love of a good tipsy punter? Well, hot diggity, have we got the job for you!
We're continually searching for excellent trivia hosts to populate the ever-growing list of venues comprising our burgeoning, only-a-little-bit-evil empire. So if you think you can cut the proverbial mustard, why not fill out this handy Expression of Interest form so that we can let you know when we'll be opening applications and holding auditions in your state. Before you can even say "minimum wage" you too could be enjoying the many perks of the ancient order of Quiz Meisters hosts*.
*Perks are subjective and not guaranteed. The ancient order of Quiz Meisters hosts is not a thing. Sometimes we make stuff up.
Free, fresh, daily trivia.
Unfortunately our legendary Lunch Quiz is now the stuff of legend.
Yeah, we're devo too.
But watch this space.
quiz date: trivia for singles
Quiz Date is Quiz Meisters' brand-spanking new line-up of singles events, soon to be launched nationwide. In an era of digital hook-up apps, over-zealous swiping, and a diminishing emphasis on true personal connection, we want to inject some fun back into dating, and provide unique IRL experiences for singles in Australia. (That's in real life, for those who aren't up with the lingo, or who were born prior to, say, 2010.)
Essentially, Quiz Date is a great night out where participants can have a few drinks, play some awesome trivia, mix with a bunch of excellent people, and then match with them at the end of the night. At Quiz Meisters we know only too well the perils and pitfalls of singledom and dating (don't get us started), so Quiz Date is all about creating relaxed, familiar and friendly environments that encourage the maximum amount of social interactivity whilst avoiding any of the pressure or awkwardness synonomous with other singles events currently available.
Stay tuned to find out when the next Quiz Date event is taking place near you.
A Quiz Meisters co-founder, Pete is responsible for keeping things up-to-scratch and on schedule, as well as training many of our hosts, and handling all the administrative duties that so confound the rest of us our eyes glaze over any time he attempts to describe what that entails.
These days he leaves the task of question-writing to members of the younger generation, but casts an editorial eye over the quiz that's played by over 6,000 people a week.
Pete likes to unwind by honing his acting skills, and his re-imagining of Blatch's prison monologue from The Shawshank Redemption for our Name These Films segment is a career highlight.
As Creative Director Steff heads up marketing and business-development, which really means he drinks a lot of cafe lattes with people from other companies whosay they do the same. Since co-founding Quiz Meisters back in the day Steff has worked in every aspect of the business, and is now the overseer of the "bigger picture" stuff.
On the ground he nurses our burgeoning Queensland team, passing on his 1,000+ quiz show performance wisdom to new hosts. He spends his spare time running, cycling, swimming, and surfing, has a black belt in karate, and practices both Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Brazilian BBQ. He is also on a quest to find a French girl named Lala.
Quiz Meisters' audio and video expert, Hayden is an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in a big fuzzy teddy bear. While no one knows exactly where or when he was born, it's widely rumoured that he was left on the doorstop of the Quiz Meisters office at the tender age of twenty, clad in a woollen beanie and a pair of weathered Crocs.
In addition to producing almost all of our onscreen content singlehandedly, Hayden (a.k.a. Bruce) can be seen regularly in our Name These Films segment, or galavanting about Collingwood with his best buddy in the whole office, Nick, whose good-natured tolerance has now grown, almost, into genuine affection.
Hayden won the Clifton Hill Tennis A-Grade Mens 2013 Singles Championships and has the receipts to prove it.
Nick is Quiz Meisters' resident web creative and jack-of-all-digital-trades. Illustration, type design, photography: you name it, he’s watched a YouTube video about how to do it sort of and then charged money for it.
See this web site? He built it from the ground up. He’s also responsible for many of the eye-pleasing graphics you’ll find bundled into your favourite multimedia trivia segments or plastered across pub urinals throughout the country.
Lover of craft beer and women everywhere, Nick is an avid vintage camera collector, serial television enthusiast, dedicated vegequarian and part-time cat-owner.
hello there, friend.
Being the handsome, tech-savvy blokes we are, it won't surprise you to know you can keep abreast of all things Quiz Meisters on a variety of social media platforms. And there's more to recommend us as cyber-pals than you might think. For example, we promise never to bombard your feed with hundreds of identical pictures of inanimate gross purple turnips (a.ka. babies — gross). Also, you can score bonus points and sweet-ass prizes courtesy of some excellent ongoing comps like Panda's Doodle on Instagram.
To find out more, just get stalking. You know you want to.
reinventing trivia. again.
When it comes to multimedia trivia, we're the best there is.
We know that's a hell of a claim but we're not in the habit of blowing our own shiny horns unless we really feel it's justified.
We've had plenty of time to perfect what we do because we've been doing it longer than anyone else. We know we have, because we invented it. A decade ago we brought DVD technology to the trivia scene for the very first time. Nowadays every pub quiz you see comprises audio visual elements of one kind or another, and it's easy to forget that not so long ago the term "trivia night" universally meant recycled questions read off dusty cue-cards by out-of-work actors or drunks gigging for booze.
While some things never change (our hosts may be bums but at least they're rigorously auditioned) the trivia landscape certainly has, thanks in no small part to the innovations we pioneered back in the day.
But despite our competitors (bless them) doing their best to keep up, we're always several hundred steps ahead: our famous onscreen games, our brilliant hosts, our wacky and irreverent cast of characters – these are just the tip of the sausage.
And what a tasty sausage it is.
You see, for us it's not enough to simply churn out a brand new, damn fine quiz every few days — No siree.
What we're really about is finding new and exciting ways to celebrate every aspect of the trivia culture we love. That's why we've embraced social media to help foster an ever-growing online following of thousands; it's why we run weekly competitions nationwide for bonus points and awesome prizes; and it's why we've replaced outdated formats with the latest iOS touchscreen technology to deliver a slicker, more sustainable product of unparalleled quality that's redefining trivia for – yep – a second time.
So, look: we don't want to come across as a bunch of big-headed buttheads who think we're too cool for, well, everything. Truthfully we're not very cool at all, despite our best efforts to convince the ladies otherwise. No, we're just your run-of-the-mill, Gen-X pop culture nerds with subtle hipster overtones and a collective passion for hilariously bad cinema.
Nonetheless, we stand by our initial claim. Because when it comes to multimedia trivia, we really are – still – the very best there is.
