Audience at our 700th show
Another great night at our 700th show!

Since 2001, over 700 shows have taken place in venue’s ranging from the King’s Hall in Belfast to the INEC in Killarney. Attendance at “Who wants to be a Thousandaire” has been consistently high because of the sheer value of entertainment the audience receive. Many people attend shows over and over again once they have attended the first one.

Please dont just buy a ticket to support an event – this is a show you must go to see. And of course, dont forget that 8 lucky contestants will be drawn to take part on the night with the aim of winning a grand – it could be you!!.

When purchasing a ticket, the purchaser can choose to play or select a nominee so no pressure to go on stage if you don’t want to !

Apart from the show, there are lots of other aspects to the night with audience questions for spot prizes, a brilliant card game with excellent prizes, a bumper raffle and usually there is also musical entertainment after the show is over.

  • Feedback from Sinnott Autos, exhibitor at show in Wicklow....

    Sinnott-Autos-Logo[1] As an exhibitor, we found that there was a significant return on our investment. Between launch night, stands outside the event and during the event itself, we received great exposure & opportunities to target new customers. We found it very easy to work with Pallas Marketing with great communication from slideshows at the event to professional invoicing for it. We would recommend this event as a great way to help the local community while also creating great awareness of your business/brand. Katherine Sinnott

  • Great night for Rainey Old Boys RFC

    Message from Chaiperson, Dr John Overend The show was a great success both as a fundraiser and as an extremely enjoyable night for the audience. We still fees to collect but our net profit so far is nineteen thousand pounds. You and your team were excellent at taking us through the process step by step.  We are certainly looking forward to working with Pallas again on a third occasion in future putting on a similar show, perhaps The Chase? Again many thanks for all your help in achieving our objective and I would have no hesitation in recommending Pallas to any Club or organisation wanting to raise a considerably sum in one night. Hopefully do business again soon John Overend.

    We would like to thank you and your team for your professional approach in driving the event, our initial expectation was in the € 20,000 to € 25,000 range but with your skill and guidance it motivated us to exceed all expectations and we raised €42,650. Your detailed planning was immense and the training and support you provided to the club project leaders gave them the confidence to execute the sales. It was clearly evident that your experience gained in running events over the years limited the amount of decision making required by the club, we adhered to your plan and focused our energy in advert and ticket sales. Your idea in having a wine reception for sponsors and advertisers prior to the show was greatly appreciated by all, it provided an opportunity to relax and network prior to the main show.  Numerous sponsors and advertisers commented on the high level of exposure they got from the event and felt their sponsorship was really appreciated.

    Re: Mount Mercy College Thousandaire Fundraiser - October 2016
    We really enjoyed the night and it was a pleasure to meet the staff of Mount Mercy College. MJK Oils are proud to support this fundraiser, I thought that Pallas Marketing recognized the major sponsors very well. We greatly appreciate all the coverage. Please continue to spread the good word about our business reputation and competitive fuel rates.

    I have been heavily involved in a variety of fundraisers during the last few years in our school ranging from race nights, fun runs, last man standing etc. Profits from all these ventures ranged from €1,500 to €6,000. Without having to dramatically increase our efforts from previous fundraising attempts, by following Pallas Marketing's advice and step by step process, we were able to increase our profits to over €17,000. I would highly recommend their services to any school who are particularly committed to fundraising and looking to maximize their potential income.
