Team building company Dream Team Catalyst has a brand new offering that is taking the market by storm.

In The Zone, launched in April last year, takes the popular treasure hunt concept and adds cutting edge technology to create a GPS challenge range of games that can be played in either an urban or rural setting. There are a number of games to choose from to improve teamwork, strategic thinking skills, communication and they can be tailored to meet the team building objectives.

“We haven’t used technology for technology’s sake. The smartphone and tablet revolution has allowed us to raise the bar and create a unique event that gives a more interactive team building experience,” says Gerry Skerritt, In the Zone CEO.

Regardless of which game you choose, each team will receive a Samsung Galaxy tablet preloaded with your unique event and packed with a range of features that will engage and motivate your team.

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • Interactive maps  The Google Maps interface shows you where your team is on the map and more crucially, where the other teams are. The GPS technology will track your progress and only allows questions or challenges to be activated when you are in a particular location.
  • Live scoreboard A live scoreboard updates teams throughout the game in order to build competition and excitement.
  • Questions and challenges The game includes a variety of clues, questions and trivia that will test the teams and get them working together. The questions and challenges can be general knowledge, task-based and can include client branded media.

Photo and video challenges add a creative touch and will be shown during the results session to bring the event to a memorable finale. The applications are almost limitless and we have designed and run a host of varied events based on very diverse briefs.
