Team Building Experience


The result was a hugely successful mid-year conference to motivate the sales team. The chose the Hilton Metropole Hotel, which worked well with the conference facilities and bedrooms. We organised for a purpose built AV set that worked well in the room for both the daytime conference and evening awards party. The evening had a carnival theme which all the guests thoroughly enjoyed with many positive comments.

The table centres were hot air balloons with other fun theming around the room including popcorn and clown balloons, flags from around the world to represent the countries the guests were attending from and fun activities including Scalextric, test your strength, coconut shy, cork shoot, racing car simulators, photo booth, magician, charity tombola and branded candyfloss.

“Amazing! Thanks team for another cracking event! It’s always so much fun working with guys to create something new and different! We’ve had so much positive feedback and the team really loved the carnival evening. We can’t wait to work with you on the next event – in a few weeks!!”
