Maximillion launches Wildgoose in Scotland

May 29, 2012 : News

Maximillion and Wildgoose announce the launch of Wildgoose Scotland providing GPS treasure hunts in Scotland from 1st June.

Wildgoose UK has developed a highly innovative and unique tablet based GPS technology utilising Google mapping with Hot Spots enabled through GPS tracking. Wildgoose UK has experienced unprecedented growth and now see an opportunity to expand through a franchise model. Maximillion has entered into a franchise agreement with Wildgoose UK and will market and deliver all their treasure hunts under the Wildgoose Scotland brand.

Maximillion has been successfully delivering paper-based treasure hunts for over 15 years and see the launch of Wildgoose Scotland as an exciting development  offering new and existing customers a far better experience blending the latest technology with tried and tested formats.

John Strachan, MD of Maximillion, commented “Wildgoose UK has driven impressive growth as a result of their unique technology behind the product. By launching  Wildgoose Scotland, Maximillion can help grow the brand across the UK while offering our own customers a new and entirely different team building solution”.

The Wildgoose GPS format was trialled in April in Edinburgh by Maximillion for a South African incentive group of 180.  The Edinburgh based agency Kudos contracted Maximillion to deliver a paper based Taxi Treasure Hunt and this was upgraded to a Wildgoose GPS format.  Anne McKay from Kudos commented “A huge thank you for such a well organised event for Sanlam.  It was extremely well run and was definitely one of the highlights of the group’s programme”.

Jonny Edser, Director at Wildgoose UK remarked “This is a partnership between treasure hunt specialists Wildgoose and Scottish-based team building experts Maximillion and will provide us with a platform on which to develop the Wildgoose brand north of the border.  With more franchise and licence opportunities already in the pipeline across the globe, we are excited about this new chapter for Wildgoose”.

Maximillion was founded in 1989 and is based in Edinburgh delivering over 250 events in 2011 throughout the UK and beyond with a full time team of eight. Wildgoose was founded in 2003 and is based in London delivering over 300 managed treasure hunts last year with a full time team of 8.
