From meetings in a unique place to special team building activities and BBQ’s, any company outing is possible at UP events.

We are offering an interactive Custom Made Game that can be fully personalized in terms of the content. With GPS we create a game that could be used in a funny or more serious way. For example the company knowledge can be tested, the company culture can be strengthened and the team building can be ensured in a playful way. This is achieved with your own questions, statements and assignments that are central to your company.

UP Events, with its years of experience in making City Games, Treasure Hunts and Escape Games via the Gamification platform, is a major player in the field of Custom Made Games. In this game, earlier concepts acquire an informative character that has a serious and educational side. In addition to using GPS, this game can also be played by QR codes, making it possible to play the Custom Made Game indoor at your business location or office.

How does it work?

In teams of 4-7 people, the participants move through an area armed with a tablet. The playing field can be a city, but also a park or business premises. Along the way, assignments are made, questions answered, riddles solved and clues found. By moving over certain GPS points on the playing field, new questions are activated each time with which points can be scored. The team with the most points wins the game.

Serious gaming with a great fun factor

The Custom Made Game from UP Events is versatile, is completely customized and can take place anywhere. The game can even be played simultaneously in several countries. Handy when your company has several branches or is active internationally. You determine the language of instruction and we will set up the custom made game for you and your team to enjoy. 

The content of the game is based on the information and input we receive from a company. Vision, core values ​​and corporate culture are integrated into the game.

Based on the company information, we can put together a game. With the varied assignments and questions, participants and the company as a whole can learn a lot from this fun gaming experience. 

These companies preceded you

For Heineken we organized a meeting with a business touch. The day started with a meeting involving several speakers in the morning. The theme was: Exploring Future of Work. This was then followed by a ‘Digital Game’ which ensured that the employees gained a clear picture of the future of the company.

Petrobas Oil & Gas
The company Petrobas Oil & Gas has an office in two countries; Nigeria and the Netherlands. The Custom Made Game we created for Petrobas Oil & Gas was played in two countries simultaneously. In this way, a team in Nigeria and a team in the Netherlands were able to work together in a playful way.

Our company has offices in Rotterdam and Lagos. UP Events organized a personalized GPS game that we played at both locations simultaneously. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot. UP Events really did everything – from preparation to the organization on the day itself – to make our company outing a great success !

UP Events organized a  Congrestival  for Medivents. This was a festival setting for a medical conference. The day was diverse, starting with a plenary meeting with various speakers and various breakout sessions. Finally, the team did a Medical Game that focused on the core values ​​of the company and new developments in the industry.

Play, watch & learn

The Custom Made Game is not only fun and great for team building, above all it is very educational for the participants and the company as a whole. There is so much that can be learned from the tasks and results that emerge. Where is the knowledge lacking? How is the division of the questions? Which topic is answered incorrectly? Afterwards you can use the photos and videos that are made available to give a final presentation to discuss substantive matters with the team.
