I Want Something Different!!

We hear it a million times – “I’m organising our annual event and looking to do something different this year”. That’s how my Pentathlon event at Sports City Manchester started out and so I set off in my quest for that elusive, ‘never been done before’ event.

My client, a member of the sales team for a large sportswear company, had come back to me for the third successive year looking for an energetic, competitive sporting activity for a group of very fit individuals. They had done our Out of Office Olympics and School Sports Day in previous years.

I produced the idea of a Pentathlon event and put forward a few venue suggestions. We finally settled on Sports City and arranged for the guests to take part in high jump, long jump, shot putt, 60m hurdles and 200m sprint. Guests were given a coaching session in each activity by qualified coaching staff after which they competed against each other in a bid to be the best.

Feedback from the guests was very positive, 5* service a very enjoyable night in a great venue. The problem is  – what to do next year?
