Virtual Around the World
What Is Virtual Around the World Team Event?
Treat your group to a virtual exploration of the globe, visiting 22 countries across 40,000 virtual miles as you test your teamwork and collaboration skills together!
Each country will present it’s own tasks to unlock using image recognition technology via an easy to download app. Your group will start in Argentina and complete a series of light-hearted challenges to earn Travel Credits. Your group will need to work together to earn enough Travel Credits to hop to the next destination and so on. You’ll also get the chance to crack cryptic clues to guess your next destination and receive the ticket for your next journey for free.
You’ll discover challenges that range from performing a fun Haka in New Zealand to exploring world wonders via Google Maps. All of these tasks will uncover answers and codes to help you explore ahead. Each group will need to keep track of time as your Travel Credits can also be earned from distance travelled. This means the team with the most Travel Credits at the end will be crowned winners!

The event itself was really good fun and I received lots of positive feedback from those who attended. I would definitely come back to you for one of your other packages in the future should we organise a similar event.
The host was great too, event was easy to follow once we were 5 minutes in and everyone kept the same pace.
