Outdoor Team Building Activities and the Weather
How to Beat the Weather for Outdoor Team Building Activities
Here we are fast approaching the summer months. The grass is looking greener, flowers are blooming, and the temperature is finally rising after a long and cold winter. It’s the perfect time to book your corporate outdoor team building activities, right? Absolutely!!
But what about the weather? It might be pretty good right now, but this is England, and rain is never all that far away. In this article, we look at how we plan for rain, so that we are prepared and ready with a contingency to make sure your outdoor team building activity goes off without a hitch
What Do We Do if the Weather Forecast Says Rain on Your Event Day?
The first thing to say is that many of our team building activities can be run outdoors – even in the rain! However, we know that for the comfort of our clients, they are not always happy to be outdoors getting wet or cold, or both! Which is why we always plan for wet weather.
Our experienced and professional event managers will discuss an indoor contingency option for your activities upon booking your event. This means, of course, that the choice of venue is important, as it must offer an indoor space, if needed.
It’s true to say that with some of our outdoor activities it’s not always as easy as saying we can just bring the activity indoors. We’re not sure the venue would appreciate Duck Herding in a conference room, for example! Therefore, it is part of our service to plan and organise an indoor option, that fulfils the original brief (even if it isn’t the same type of event), to ensure that we deliver the best possible event on the day.
As always, everything is in the planning. Click on the links below to here to see some of our Outdoor Team Building Testimonials:
