Corporate Events Management: Now Includes Retirement Parties!
At Bright Vision Events, we like to do things a bit differently and we like a bit of a challenge too. This means that as a corporate events management company we sometimes get involved in managing events that could be described as being a ‘bit outside the box.’ In this testimonial we report on being asked to put on a retirement party with a difference for one of the employees of the EEF Venue group, part of EEF, the Manufacturers’ Organisation.
The Details of this Event
The event was held on 16th July at Woodland Grange, just outside Leamington Spa, which handily is one of the principal venues of the EEF Venue Group, making it an ideal location. Retirement parties usually feature a nice dinner and a few speeches, but this one didn’t quite follow suit!
Instead, the team decided an Alternative Olympics performed on the lawns at Woodland Grange followed by a BBQ would be much more fun!
The Alternative Olympics is one of our most popular outdoor team building events, but it doubles just as well as a great fun event to celebrate someone’s retirement. There’s a wide range of ‘disciplines’ that clients can choose from, and in this case, the main ones were:
- Space hopper football
- Bean bag tossing
- Towers of Hanoi
A huge amount of fun was had by all as the teams strived to out-do each other despite the heat. The client was delighted.
