Team Spirit: Trends in Team Building

Team Building has been a trend for meeting and events from as far back as I can remember, but the perception of what is a good team building experience has evolved a great deal over time. Most of us have done our share of “Ice Breaker” activities such as name games, balloon towers, and relay races, but many of today’s groups are looking for more of a challenge - something that keeps their attendees engaged and leaves a lasting memory.

Choosing an event activity venue for your gang just got easier with meetingpages team building directory. Or you may consider one of these:

All Aboard

What better way to encourage teamwork than a build-a-boat event? Using a corrugated box and detailed blueprints, teams can create and race boats that are sea-worthy. Then, wrap up the theme with a boating event on a charter cruise.

Green Par Tee

Nothing fosters teamwork more than a round of best ball on lovely summer or fall day on the green. Award prizes and continue to establish connections after with a little par tee at the golf course | country club clubhouse or a local restaurants private room.

Buckle Up

Take your group out for a competitive race game of go karting or whirleyball at an area race track. Have fun while uncovering hidden leaders and increasing engagement!


Target shooting is one of the most rapidly growing activities in popularity. Enjoy a day of shooting sporting clays at a sportsman resort or range. Harness connections and teach creativity while unleashing competitive fun among employees of all ages.

Challenge Courses

Climbing & Zipling, Rafting, Ax throwing, and Simulated Combat are just a few of the hottest Challenge Course team building offerings available currently. Designed to cater to small groups they all teach communication and are sure to build trust.
