Off Limits Event Professionals were approached to plan a fun, summer themed outdoor event for the client Octopus Group. They are recognised in the industry as the ‘Agency of the Future’ and create focused campaigns for clients using PR, social and content to help brands arrive at sales quickly.
The client has a unique, down to earth approach to culture and wanted a team building event that reflected their core values. The Octopus Group were keen to plan an engaging event that was unique, innovative and incorporated plenty of Wild West themed activities. The client wanted to book a venue outside the city centre in a laid back, rural setting that perfectly represented the Wild West theming.
The event took place at the vast grounds of Marlow’s Farm in Buckinghamshire. The stunning and idyllic setting was the perfect backdrop to this hedonistic and timeless themed event. The venue was decked out with themed props including hay bales, tepees and even the employees dressed up in themed costumes for the occasion. The agenda included a morning briefing from the Off Limits Event Professionals team on the series of themed and exciting team building activities. The large, spacious outdoor based venue perfectly accommodated the full schedule and the activities blended with the clients fun and approachable brand values. The Wild West props and activities transported employees back to the Native American era of Cowboys and Indians. A few of the activities included cattle herding, rifle shooting, blindfold tepee building, lassoing, quick draw, bucking bronco and horse shoe tossing. The rifle shooting was an exhilarating activity and the ideal competitive experience for employee bonding and mastering key marksmanship skills. Employees enjoyed the heart pumping bucking bronco experience and it was a hot favourite white knuckle ride amongst delegates. The event was more than just a summer festival for their employees, it was stimulating and colourful team build that was entertaining, enhanced communication in a unique environment and ultimately encouraged employees to bond.
The Octopus Group commented on the event “Off Limits Events hosted our Wild West team building activities for our annual summer festival, Roctostock. They did a splendid job, well-organised, lively and were a really fun bunch that made our day brilliant! Thanks to the whole event support team – you guys were awesome!”
