FAM trips are ‘familiarisation trips’ for industry experts like ourselves to get to know venues inside out; this gives us the ability to provide an unparalleled venue finding service to clients just like you. But work doesn’t come without some perks for the team here at Perfectly Apt. Our recent Alton Towers FAM trip kicked off with some delicious canapés before an exciting treasure hunt (sponsored by Wild Goose) around the Alton Towers Hotel and the following day we were shown the facilities within the park and got to experience the park.
We also attended the Silverstone FAM trip where Wild Goose were leading yet another treasure hunt and we came out on top as the winning team! Not only that, but at Silverstone we were also joined by Global DMC Partners bringing with them representatives from Switzerland, Turkey, Morocco and Poland. They offered us invaluable insider knowledge and our day was finished off with a once-in-a-lifetime driving experience around the Silverstone track!
From our incredible experiences at both Silverstone and Alton Towers, we would definitely recommend something like a treasure hunt for your next team building day – it worked really well as a team work activity.
In addition to our FAM trips, we have also visited other locations in the UK such as Oulton Hall in Leeds where we were delighted to find a huge outdoor space, a lavish champagne bar and private spa treatment rooms. And also Thorpe Park Hotel where have personally sampled the working buffet lunch which came with lovely healthy options to suit all dietary requirements. So when it comes to venue finding and research, we’ve certainly been very busy in 2015 so far.
