Kick-off Meetings are a fantastic way to get teams prepared, excited and ready to work on a new project or to reinvigorate an existing team for the year ahead. A successful kick-off meeting, when planned and executed properly, will increase productivity and build trust and alignment with company goals. venuesworld.com was tasked with organising this year’s kick-off meeting in Dublin, Ireland for 650 attendees.
A range of different destinations were evaluated before Dublin was finally chosen as the destination of choice. Dublin is a world-class, exciting and inspirational city famed for it’s welcoming attitude to business tourists from across the globe. Citywest Hotel offered the perfect venue for this event. With 764 bedrooms and 177,000 sq. ft of meeting space the hotel was able to offer all that was required to ensure an enjoyable, successful and cost-effective event.
Challenges and Solutions
Delivering an innovative and engaging event:
This client has had this kick-off meeting in a number of locations and has seen a lot of the most common activities suggested for events. At venuesworld.com we always push ourselves to deliver the most innovative and engaging events. We pride ourselves on staying ahead of the curve in delivering amazing events that meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.
Using our local knowledge we were able to offer delegates an opportunity to explore Ireland, to see the country, something that many delegates do not get to do when attending events. We showed the delegates areas of Ireland they may not necessarily have seen, then captured it on video for a lasting memory.
Team-Building Across 5 Beautiful Irish Locations
Teambuilding activities are a brilliant way to bring people together and encourage them to bond, collaborate and build relationships. These fun activities allow people to connect with others in their teams and see them in a different light. When teambuilding activities are executed properly they help facilitate long-term relationships that build genuine connections and understanding amongst teams.
This client wanted a teambuilding activity that would excite and inspire their employees. venuesworld.com created a teambuilding event across 6 locations (The Phoenix Park, Dun Laoghaire Pier, Glendalough Monastery, Russborough Demense, Kilruddery Gardens and Howth Village). Using a treasure hunt, props and finally, a videographer to capture it all, the different groups created a video with memories of their time Ireland to keep forever, along with forging lasting memories.
