Wildgoose Events, which specialises in corporate treasure hunts, is looking to add a further 12 new licencees to its existing eight, which are based in New Zealand, South Africa, Malta, Canada, Denmark, Singapore, Belgium and France, as well as its franchise in Scotland.

In 2013, Wildgoose Events has run more than 450 corporate events and turned over more than £1m for the first time in its history. 

Jonny Edser, Wildgoose Events managing director, said: "This year has been amazing for us. We’ve enjoyed extraordinary growth and even won a National Entrepreneurs Award for it. We’ve taken on four new people, including a non-executive chairman who is helping us to expand and a university graduate in her first job. 

"Next year we aim to double the size of our business and we’re now on the lookout for ambitious new sales and events staff to help us meet our ambitious growth targets.

"We’ve got a number of great new UK partnerships in the pipeline and, in early 2014, we’ll be launching our new app, which will take urban team-building events to a whole new level. We’ve got eight great global licencees already on board who love what we do and we’re looking to expand that number to 20 in 2014. We are actively looking for new global partners."

Wildgoose has run a number of events for Travelport in 2013 and has worked with agency Maximillion.
