Chicago, IL (PressExposure) October 02, 2009 -- One Plus One Events, just opened in Chicago, offers scavenger hunt events to help companies build teams or to better market products. One Plus One Events is hosting a launch party on October 14 to celebrate the official commencement of business. Registration for the party is available on the companyâs web site, [http://www.oneplusoneevents.com].
Team building scavenger hunts are appropriate either for corporate groups or for smaller businesses competing against each other. These two- to four-hour hunts take place in and out of Chicago venues, the locations strategically themed to match a companyâs products or goals. Teams follow clues, and at each prearranged venue, pose for team pictures, acquire next clues, and strategize to determine how to maximize points within the allocated time.
Jane Goldfine, Vice President and Lead Career Management Consultant at a global Human Resources consulting firm, commented about a team building event her company participated in at the Oak Brook Mall. âThis event far exceeded my expectations. This has been a staff favorite and allowed us to work together in a way that took us out of our comfort zones and roles at work. Teams were created based on cross-functional areas and provided the opportunity to increase camaraderie and spirit across the entire organization. A definite success on all fronts.â
Marketing scavenger hunts benefit stores that are part of the scavenger hunt, and are open to participation by the general public. This option is attractive to chambers of commerce, shopping mall communities, and other organizations looking for unique ways to market merchants. Exposure and extra foot traffic are bonuses for the stores involved. Greg OâNeill, co-owner of Pastoral Artisan Cheese, Bread and Wine in Chicago says, âHaving scavenger hunt teams come scrambling in to get their pictures taken and to find their next clue is as fun for us as being in the actual scavenger hunt.â
The name One Plus One comes from the concept that the whole is greater than the individual parts. The answer for Chicago: 1 plus 1
