Team Challenge Company, one of the UK’s leading event and team building companies, has been crowned winner at the Scottish Event Awards for the ‘Best Use of Technology’.

The Dunfermline-based company, which runs corporate events and team development training days across the UK, were recognised alongside some of Scotland’s biggest events including The Royal Highland Show, Turner Prize and World Gymnastics Championships.

Team Challenge Company’s #DestinationUnknown away day was designed to reward staff at Eureka Solutions software company.

The client brief was simple: to create an event that had the ‘wow factor’; event details -especially venue location - were to be kept secret for as long as possible, and the event should generate a feeling of camaraderie amongst staff.

Corporate Event Wow Factor

The event included a 50-mile long, app-based, digital but interactive treasure hunt with 100 possible routes for participants to choose from. Checkpoints included Stirling Castle, Andy Murray’s Golden postbox in Dunblane and Hampden Park.

There were a range of tasks and challenges along the way, included recreating movie scenes from the likes of Rocky and Titanic, singing favourite Disney songs and taking group selfies. The day also included challenges and activities that ranged from rapping along to the ‘Prince of Bel Air’ to gundog training and falconry.

To finish the day in style, there was a glamourous James Bond themed evening casino to tie in with the delegates’ day of being super sleuths. The casino extravaganza was held at one of the UK’s most luxurious venues, the world famous 5-star Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire.

Innovative GPS Treasure Hunt Technology

The pioneering software used for the event has been a huge success in the corporate events markets in the USA, Japan, and the Middle East. Team Challenge Company, which holds exclusive rights for GoTeam in the Scottish market, believes its deployment for the #DestinationUnknown event is the first time it has been used on such a grand scale.

Co-director at Team Challenge Company, Gerard Crowley, said: “It is a huge honour to be recognised by the Scottish Event Awards as they are one of the most prestigious in the industry. “This was one of the most complex events we have ever delivered and I could not be prouder of my team who worked tirelessly, planning meticulously and ensuring that we delivered an incredible event. The acknowledgement we have received from both the client and our peers has spurred us on to develop even more innovative events in the future.”

A Scottish Event Awards spokesperson said “We would like to congratulate Team Challenge Company on their well-deserved win. It was clear thecomplex event took considerable planning and the judges were impressed by the fun and innovative use of the cutting edge GPS tracking app to bring the event to life.
