The London Helicopter Sunset Tours

Beginning in January and for six weeks only, groups will be able to enjoy The London Helicopter’s exclusive series of Sunset Tours for birdseye views of the capital city’s lights as they come to life.

Flights will take off from the city centre allowing for easy access for groups located in zones 1-3 and will leave at precise times for the best views as dusk approaches.

The tour can take groups of six right the way across the London skyline with the company’s trained pilots also on hand to give insightful commentaries of all the major sights.

Alton Towers’ ‘Big Kids At Work’

In November, Alton Towers launched its new delegate package Big Kids at Work, combining some of the resort’s best activities with its meetings and events offering.

The package intends to take delegates out of the boardroom and back to their childhoods for the day, to inspire them to maximise their creative potential while working together as a team.

The package includes use of the Enchanted Forest Tree Top Quest high ropes course, the Waterpark and a round of Extraordinary Golf. Following a day at the resort, delegates will be able to go for a sleepover in one of Alton Towers’ themed rooms, which range from Sonic the Hedgehog to Peter Rabbit, where they can tuck into some sweet treats.

The ‘Big Kids at Work’ package costs £155 and includes one night’s accommodation at The Alton Towers Hotel in a Moon Voyage themed room with breakfast. There are a number of add-ons available.

Land Rover Adventure Travel’s off-road experience

Land Rover Adventure Travel by Abercrombie & Kent revealed its latest offering for groups looking to get the adrenaline pumping in some of the most picturesque destinations on the planet with its range of global off-road adventure packages.

Land Rover Adventure Travel's corporate experiences, which have been designed in partnership with luxury adventure travel agency Abercrombie & Kent, will offer the chance for companies to explore a variety of destinations from behind the wheel of one of the UK automotive giant's vehicles.

Launching throughout 2016, groups can travel to Spain's Monsterrat Mountains; Iceland's arctic landscape and capital city Reykjavik; and the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, as well as the UK countryside.

Land Rover Adventure Travel states that groups will be able to 'explore landscapes, see wildlife and meet communities well off the beaten track, under the care of a specialist instructor'.

Chelsea Football Club & Wildgoose

Chelsea Football Club may not be having their best season so far, but off the pitch they are looking to profit with a range of new offers for corporate groups. One of which is its interactive teambuilding experience at Stamford Bridge, in partnership with Wildgoose Events.

The teambuilding experience takes delegates on an interactive treasure hunt across the football club’s 11-acre stadium, incorporating a series of motivating challenges, quiz-style trivia games and physical activities.

Delivered via an interactive app, the challenge can be customised with corporate branding, colour preferences and other bespoke features including team names, selfies and videos. In addition to choosing the location and trail, teams can use personalised clues and individual questions about their company and colleagues.

Chillisauce’s ‘Play with a Legend’

One of C&IT’s agencies to watch in 2016, Chillisauce unveiled the ultimate teambuilding package for football fans who have dreamed of crossing the white chalk and lining up next to the greats. Well, now they can.

The 'Play with a Legend' football teambuilding package allows corporate groups to play with Premiership legends, including Teddy Sheringham and Matt le Tissier, in some of the top stadiums in the country.

The ‘Play With A Legend’ experience will give corporate delegates the chance to team up with one or more former Premier League stars for a five-a-side, six-a-side or 11-a-side match, with an opportunity to socialise with the stars afterwards.

The games can take place in a range of venues from Powerleague pitches to major footballing stadiums around the UK, including Wembley Stadium, Emirates Stadium and Stamford Bridge.

Chillisauce has partnered with former Arsenal player Perry Groves to create the teambuilding and incentive package, which has more than 50 football legends on board.

The package will include a choice of ex-pros to play alongside, a full football kit for each delegate, team photos and food and drinks after the match.
