In pictures: Agency and corporate buyer event at The International Centre, Telford

See pictures from the Midlands venue's familiarisation event, based on an escape room secret mission, held for 40 agency and corporate buyers.

Held over two days (July 25-26), the venue staged 15 different puzzles and challenges to create what is thought to be one of the largest escape rooms in the UK. Corporate and agency buyers, who came from around the country, were enticed by a secret venue mission from start to finish, with an overall objective to save the ‘Event Crystal’.

Starting with an anonymous invitation from a tenacious ‘Agent G’ through to a luxury fine ‘dining in the dark’ experience, events agencies and corporate guests experienced a day of secret transport pick-ups, special agent briefings, creative content and breakout gaming.

The escape rooms were developed in conjunction with local escape room company XscapeNow. In-house production specialists Stagecraft UK worked to develop technical production across all of the spaces, including a mission control room, a secret spy interrogation room and a ‘shaken, not stirred’ bar-themed puzzle room.

The International Centre’s food and beverage team produced a sumptuous fine-dining experience in the evening, including ‘blindfold’ courses.
