Our second time working with Big Blue Adventures for our company off-site and it was amazing! They even managed to make the sunshine in Wales for us 😆 Everything from the organization, answering a million questions from us during the planning, to the trip itself and the jam packed fun itinerary was amazing. Couldn’t recommend Dan & the team enough for the perfect work off-site mix of business & fun!


Offsite Brief

This company wanted to bring their team together in the UK for a few days of team building in nature, great food and drink, and a unique conference to motivate, inspire and celebrate. This was the second time the company had used Big Blue to plan their offsite, so we knew what would work well for their team. We created a fun-filled itinerary, and packed the conference with fun, games and entertainment. Making it an offsite to remember.
