To tie in with London 2012, EventWorks are offering a sports day with an olympics twist this summer!
This fun and interactive Olympics event package is suitable for all kinds of groups, ages and abilities and is a great outdoor option for any summer corporate company day or team building event. It consists of a mix of elements from the classic school sports day and Olympic games traditions.
A combination of the biggest and best inflatable's mixed in with classic Olympics style events to really add to the fun. But that’s only the start, we’re really pushing the Olympics theme and we do that with a range of extras to make this event even more memorable in this Olympic year.
So what’s makes the difference in the event? Here's an example of some of the great additions to our Olympic style sports day event:
A great mix of the biggest inflatables
Mixed in with on Track Olympics Style Races
Our Olympic Arena to set the scene. A Large Olympics Banner over our stage area which sits in front of the main Race track complete with start and finish, lanes etc
Team/ Country Flags on Poles which the team member gather around prior to the competition
Olympics Parade – a fun filled parade around the track for all teams behind their flags
Olympic athlete running the show. Our great character MC runs the show
Olympic Podium for final presentation of medals for gold, silver and bronze
This is what we excel in and it is so important with a day like this not to just have a wide range of games in a field which people rotate through. We want to ensure there is something for everyone so we have the games split across three main areas: Area 1 - Large inflatables, Area 2 - Our Olympics Track and Area 3 - Mind and Skill Games.
This outdoor team building event can last from 2-4 hours depending on your numbers. This all adds up to a really fun day and a great way to boost employee team spirit.We can even add in an Olympics style quiz as an indoor plan B back up option. As we are a full time event management company run the entire day from start to finish and manage the activites and coordinate all timings to ensure the event runs smoothly and it a great success.
This current event is the perfect company outing for a corporate event this summer as it's fun, engaging and interactive with a team building element to it and it also gets the competitive spirit going with the teams.
It is sure to be a day to remember and there is definitely something there for everybody. As we understand the importance of all the attendees getting involved and working together, we include both physical and mental challenge zones to appeal to the entire group.
If you are planning a corporate summer event with a mix of everything then the EventWorks Olympic Challenge is perfect for you. It will entertain your staff for hours and a great way to draw this event to the close would be with a BBQ at your chosen venue. We run this event all across Ireland.

Beat The Clock
Beat The Block is an ideal city challenge for a small group as the event is completed in one team. The team are given 20 fun and cryptic tasks and a limited amount of time to complete each of them. However additional tasks received by various means throughout have even shorter deadlines and so it becomes a race against the clock to complete the cryptic tasks. 1 Team. 20 Tasks. Pass or FAIL.

Spy School is a team challenge with a difference. This event includes a number of crucial spy themed tasks that teams must decipher and solve which are integral to the success of their spy mission and ultimately the survival of their company. Teams will be given a secret spy kit containing hi tech gadgets especially designed for espionage which will really help them get into character. In order to complete their tasks, teams will be required to think on their feet, work together, be devious and show genuine spy skills. Sample spy tasks include testing teams’ observation skills by recalling faces from CCTV footage and cryptic code cracking against the clock.

A great way to launch a new marketing phrase, slogan or tagline or the year ahead or even just a great way to act as an icebreaker and integrate lots of smaller teams together.

Teams must transfer energy balls from the sun to a depleted planet using piping and other materials we provide. However there are many other twists and turns (literally) which they must adhere to. This team building event is great for team work but also collaboration with others, creativity, time management and seeing the bigger picture as many teams work together to achieve a common goal.
4. Team MTV - Our custom event Team MTV is an interactive and fun option for your staff team building day. Teams must record a music video, well just their one section of it and then we edit and combine them into one group MTV masterpiece. Another great creative team building event which brings the smaller teams together as one.
“Just wanted to say a big thank you for everything on Thursday. Everyone really enjoyed the activity and the video was brilliant.”
- Nestlé - Team MTV
5. The Mission - A briefcase with top secret company information has been stolen by an armed kidnapper. With the guidance of our tough Character MC teams must undergo a series of tasks to recover the missing item and track down the kidnapper. Only one team can recover the item, it’s a race to be the first. Varied tasks make this a unique conference or team building game.
