Barrhead Travel was looking for fun and interactive group activities for a diverse group of 110 staff and guests. This included Barrhead Travel staff, senior management and board members, as well as key suppliers, clients and partners, to take part in a two-day conference in November 2016.
Maximillion organised late afternoon and evening entertainment on the Saturday, and provision of a suite of outdoor activities at Turnberry Adventures on the Sunday morning
The client requested a Murder Mystery performance to take place during the group’s evening meal on the Saturday, in addition to a late afternoon interactive game show quiz –Amalgameation – as well as the provision of a programme of outdoor activities at the Turnberry Adventures outdoor activity centre.
On the back of the group’s daytime conference event, the late afternoon Amalgameation Game Show event in the Donald J Trump Ballroom set the scene for the evening, with some interactive fun and light-hearted cross-team competition. Following this, and during pre-dinner drinks, four professional actors mixed and mingled with the guests to ‘tee-up’ the "Death or Denial" Murder Mystery storyline. The entertainment involved an Agatha Christie-style plot that ran over the course of the dinner with scenes taking place in between courses and over coffee.
On the Sunday morning the Turnberry Adventures team provided four consecutive Quad Bike Trail sessions for groups of six guests at a time, and running parallel to these sessions there was traditional Clays shooting and Archery.
Nichola O’Brien, head of sales support at Barrhead Travel said:"During our work conference, Maximillion provided us with not only stress free organisation, but also complete peace of mind. From our initial contact, your exceptional service and personal assurance reassured us that 'our' entertainment was in 'your' hands.
"I would definitely recommend the services of Maximillion to any size of group or organisation and be assured that we will be working with you again and again and again!"
