London iPad Corporate Treasure Hunt for Statpro at ICEBAR London

A Long and Happy Relationship!

Gable Events are very proud to have run events for StatPro since 2012. The first event was Dragon Boat Racing with a BBQ at the Wimbledon Park Watersports Centre, London. Following the huge success of their first event, StatPro have entrusted Gable Events with all of their London summer party and Christmas events since!

These have ranged from a Medieval Banquet at St Katharine Dock to a Krypton Maze at The Elvetham Hotel, Hampshire, a Casino evening at the StatPro offices in Wimbledon and a Murder Mystery evening at the lovely Radisson Blu Edwardian Grafton Street Hotel. The latest event was a corporate iPad Treasure Hunt held at the ultra-cool (literally!) ICEBAR situated off London’s Regent Street.

The Client

In the business of portfolio analytics since 1994, StatPro is a young company with plenty of energy and a commitment to innovation. They proudly have around 500 clients across 38 countries and employ 250 staff globally. As a team, StatPro is comprised of people with a wide range of expertise and they work together to complement each other’s skills. Their Summer party and Christmas events are considered a key element in bringing their staff together for a bonding experience to build team work and to have fun!

The Venue

The ICEBAR is a celebrated London tourist attraction. A cold sensory experience where the walls, bar, tables and even your own personal glass are made from crystal clear Torne River ice harvested in Northern Sweden. Although hugely popular with the public, not everyone would associate ICEBAR London with corporate meetings and events but the venue is available for private hire and offers something completely different to a standard hotel conference room. The unique surroundings tied in with excellent service, food and a central location off Regent Street makes the ICEBAR the perfect base for a London corporate treasure hunt.

The Team Building Experience

The StatPro iPad London treasure hunt started with a sit-down lunch for 60 guests in the Moose Room of ICEBAR London. This was a perfect opportunity for the client to relax and escape the searing June heat before the ‘serious’ business of hunting for treasure ensued. Gable Events were responsible for sourcing and arranging the venue and lunch as well as providing the treasure hunt and our dedicated event manager made sure it all ran smoothly. Once fully briefed, the teams were then let loose for two hours on the hunt, each equipped with an iPad.

Teams were asked to follow GPS coordinates and make their way to the Central London hotspots, unlocking tasks to earn points along the way. The tasks ranged from quiz style questions using observational clues to physical challenges requiring teams to capture photos and videos based on a brief. The teams were able to check the live interactive score board and maps on their iPads to see how their competitors were doing and where they were.

On arrival back at the venue, the client enjoyed the fantastic ICEBAR London experience with some deliciously chilled cocktails followed by a 30 minute results presentation with their iPad treasure hunt event manager. The smiling faces on the team photos and videos showed just how much fun was had and Gable Events are keenly anticipating the opportunity to plan StatPro’s next London corporate team building adventure!
