A Group Event at Speed Raceway Is the Way to Go


Team events are supposed to be fun. In fact, any team event that isn’t fun shouldn’t exist. Almost every day your team has to come into work and do the same things over and over. For this one day, you should provide them with something fun, something new, and something totally out of the ordinary. Here are a few steps to help you throw a truly awesome corporate event.

  • If the idea isn’t solid, the party probably won’t be fun

It doesn’t matter if you have the most creative and cohesive team outside of Google working for you, if you don’t build the event around an exciting activity, the whole thing is a waste. So be sure to find an activity that is truly out of the ordinary, anything to completely remove daily tasks from the minds of your employees. You can take the team skydiving. You can take them to a ball game. You can even take them on a bike tour of local breweries. If it were me, I would take my team to do some indoor go kart racing at Speed Raceway. I enjoy doing a little high-intensity racing inside with air-conditioning, but that is just me.

  • A private room is always nice

Remember, your employees have probably spent the majority of their recent lives in your office. They are used to that environment. And anything too out of the ordinary may frighten or overwhelm them. This can be good to a degree, but this is supposed to be a positive experience for all, so make sure that the location you choose has at least one quieter area where members of your team can escape the excitement for a few brief moments. This also provides you and your company a place for some conversing, as well as some opening and closing remarks. At the very least, the VIP area may make your employees feel fancy and privileged, at least for the duration of indoor go kart racing the event.

  • Hungry people are unhappy people

Group events come in all shapes and sizes. Depending on the size of your company and the event you are planning for, your budgets may vary greatly. But it shouldn’t matter if you are a single shop or a Fortune 500 company. At the very least, you should always provide access to delicious food. This means that if there simply isn’t room for food in your price plan, try to choose a location that at least offers the access of good food. For instance, if you decided to throw a local brewery tour, many of these establishments won’t offer food directly, but they do offer the proximity of excellent food trucks that tend to hang nearby, and others will provide you with information of all the local delivery places that will delivery to the brewery. So try to inquire if the location serves food, allows delivery/catering, or whether you will be better off just grabbing a bite nearby. Nothing kills a party vibe more than a bunch of people with low blood sugar, so to consider the food issue to be vital. You can’t go wrong with snacks, especially in between races at your indoor go kart racing event. 

  • Drinks make me happy

Alcohol, much like food, makes a great compliment to most activities. And if you are trying to get your team to relax and truly enjoy themselves, then you should consider providing some booze. Even if you just pick up a couple six packs, so your employees can enjoy one cold beer that can go a long way to making people feel comfortable.
