5 reasons to organise a Treasure Hunt

August 23, 2011 : General Team Building

In my 9 years in the events industry, I have seen team building trends come and go. Event briefs are often influenced by popular TV shows, sporting occasions, music and of course the fluctuating economy. But the popularity of some activities endures, with the most notable being treasure hunts.

Here are 5 reasons why:

1. Cost effective

Treasure hunts can start from and finish at any city centre location; your hotel, conference venue, a restaurant or bar. This keeps costs down as you don’t need to factor in coach transfers or venue fees. We can offer a range of hunts to suit all budgets, from a fun Treasure Stride to a sophisticated, full-day Adventure Rally.

2. Inclusive

Everyone, it seems, enjoys a treasure hunt! They appeal to participants of all ages, both genders and a range of profiles, personalities and abilities. Each team has a different experience, and guests enjoy swapping stories and experiences over a few drinks well into the evening.

3. Flexible

Whether you’re organising a conference, team building away day or an activity to tie in with a company meeting, a treasure hunt fits the bill. Taxi is a fantastic way to allow conference delegates or incentive guests the opportunity to experience a city and meet the locals while getting to know one another better in a fun, creative team building event.

4. Adaptable

Treasure hunts are of course great fun, but can also reinforce a conference message, your company brand or organisational values. We can include questions about your market, your people or your clients. They can also meet your specific aims and objectives – Espionage, for example, works well to promote planning and encourage effective time management.

5. Fun!

With scavenge, photo and information hunts; questions covering culture, literature and architecture, quirky points of interest, and even some intriguing encounters, treasure hunts are hugely enjoyable. Your group will leave with an album full of memories which will create a talking point for months to come.
