Chinaâs Bespoke Travel Company has come up with two new teambuilding programmes that observe social distancing, where members can be âalone-togetherâ in a scavenger hunt, and a teambuilding game based on a traditional British pub quiz format.
Targeted at the domestic market, the scavenger hunt activity offers booklets that are sent by post, which guide participants through Beijing and Shanghaiâs major sights on the hunt for clues, while learning historical facts and stories about the place they are visiting.
The first booklet that will be launched is Bespokeâs Beihai Park Scavenger Hunt this month.
The park is the oldest in Beijing and the hunt, which lasts about four hours, will take place in five zones, and âhuntersâ will be asked six questions and undertake a challenge for each zone.
Bespoke Travel Company’s founder Sarah Keenlyside, said: âBespoke started out as a company that put the emphasis on independent touring, giving people the tools they needed to explore a city at their own pace.â
Teams can enter their completed activity booklets â by post, WeChat or email â into a citywide competition and the winners will be announced in early-July.
Upcoming later this month will be a Bespoke Bund Scavenger Hunt in Shanghai, followed by one for Beijingâs 798 Art District.
Meanwhile, the Bespoke Online Team Building Game is conducted via Zoom and WeChat and hosted by a Bespoke Games Master, who administers the challenges, questions and puzzles, get gamers on track and keeps score.
The game incorporates several different rounds of challenges, trivia and puzzles that teams must work on together to solve, race against the clock, and find certain items in their house before their rivals.
Keenlyside explained: âThe idea with this was absolutely to deliver a couple of hours of fun and laughter to teams that are in desperate need of some light relief right now.â
The game, which is conducted in English and takes around 2.5 hours to complete, can also be customised for teams based in other countries.
