Why Choose Indoor Team Building?

Apr 24, 2008
There are so many different types of team events to choose from these days, so with the huge range of options available to you, why would you choose indoor team building? There's many, many reasons why you may opt to stay indoors for your team event.

The first one that springs to mind is the good old British weather. There's really no telling what's going to be happening outside even if the calendar says August, we all know that it can be cold and raining. Unfortunately us Brits know that calling a season summer doesn't guarantee a dry sunny day! As it happens, there are few outdoor team building events that would need to be cancelled if it was raining and the weather would have to be absolutely atrocious before an event was cancelled but nevertheless, this is an important factor for some organisers choice reasoning for opting for indoor team building.

Time can also be a deciding factor for staying inside. If you are hosting an indoor team building event, then you don't have to get your delegates out of their seats and to a location, you don't run the risk of loosing people on the way (it's amazing how many people take their time). By hosting the event indoors, your delegates are ready and waiting the event can start immediately and when you are on a tight conference schedule this is a crucial point to remember.

Another element that plays a part is light. Many organisers choose indoor team building in the winter because the failing light in the afternoon in the winter means that team events have to be finished sometimes as early as three 0'clock. If you are inside then obviously this doesn't become an issue.

Budget plays an important part in the indoor or outdoor choice. If you are looking at events that are outside, they may well need grounds on which to host them. These grounds normally cost money and not every company wants to spend their budget on the ground hire. If you are hosting a meeting, then you have a room already available to you at no additional cost, which makes indoor team building sometimes the more attractive option.

With indoor team building being very flexible, it's possible now to effectively engage very large groups of people at the same time. You can host a team event that each and every delegate is playing a part in simultaneously for as many as 2000 delegates; it's not as easy to do this when you are outside. With such a wide range of creative, effective and fun indoor events available, it's easy to see why organisers are working with team building companies and planning events that take place inside.

If you are not sure if you should be hosting an indoor team building event, then call up an established team building company, talk to them and make sure they know exactly what you want to achieve and let them suggest a number of different options for you to choose from in order to create a memorable and fulfilling event.
