The Appointment Group

The Appointment Group's UK global events team enjoyed an afternoon out yesterday (18 August), to take part in Escape Games London. 

The event was held at the Millbank Media Centre, which is one of Altitude London’s nine venues located in the Grade II listed Millbank Tower. Delegates were tasked with trying to escape the venue within the allotted 45-minute period, which everyone did successfully, although one team left it late with just one second to spare! The delegates went on to enjoy dinner and drinks at the Skyloft, afterwards.

Leading Hotels of the World

Last weekend C&IT joined event professionals from Zibrant, BI Worldwide, Autograph Events and NYS Corporate for Leading Hotels of the World's annual London Summer Weekend.

Attendees were split into teams and were tasked with finding their way around London, using the Wildgoose bespoke teambuilding app to unlock tasks before reaching checkpoints at six of Leading Hotels' five-star properties, which included One Aldwych, The Ritz, Hotel Cafe Royal, The Landmark, The Baglioni and The Langham.
