Maximillion have entered into a franchise agreement with Wildgoose UK and will market and deliver all their treasure hunts under the Wildgoose Scotland brand. Google mapping software will be used, with Hot Spots enabled through satellite tracking for the activities.

John Strachan, MD of Maximillion, said: "Wildgoose UK have 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 upgrade 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, added: "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".
