Many of the businesses attending the games used them as team building corporate events with a small element of competition thrown in. These types of event can be of great benefit to your organisation but can also be stressful and complicated to organise.

The latest figures show that there are currently in excess of 25,000 businesses in the UK events industry. So if you are looking to hold an event, why not take a look at the website of a specialist event management company such as today to see how they can take the problem off your hands and organise a fantastic event for you?


Medals were awarded to the first, second and third in each event in order to recognise personal achievement, and first-place athletes received a special entry into the World Corporate Games to be held in Houston, Texas, later this year. The organisation entering the most athletes also won an award in recognition of its leadership in the areas of fitness, team building and company excellence.
