Immersive learning events are an opportunity to bring together a number of immersive learning activities into a fast-paced and highly memorable event. Events can be delivered within a range of locations and venues, and are designed to run for any length of time, from half a day though to several days. They can also be integrated into an immersive learning programme, or can be adapted to complement an existing learning framework.
Events are tailor made for larger teams to work together on solutions to shared problems. Every event is unique and will be developed around the specific learning and development needs of the teams attending and the wider business priorities.
Events typically cater for teams where achieving a variety of complex learning needs is important, such as creativity, confidence, strategy, pace of progress, inter-team collaboration and decision making. Most events take the form of an immersive world, with a number of modular learning activities integrated into it, with an engaging storyline to bring the immersive world to life. Naturally the team's ability to explore and take an active part within this immersive world will support their own development, stimulate creativity and encourage them to support and help others.
The modular design of the activities and learning content delivered within each event ensures the experience is highly tailored to addressing your business priorities in a cost effective manner.

Creating Your Event
The first step in creating one is to define the key event parameters, such as when and where you would like your event and how many people will be taking part. You can run an event at a venue of your choice or we can find an iconic and atmospheric one for you. We can work with groups of any size and of any age. The event can therefore be tailored to fit with your budget, timescales and outcomes.
We will then work with you to define learning objectives for your team’s experience that address your business's priorities as well as challenges it is currently facing.
Each of our learning experiences is built around a storyline that is designed to engage the participants in the learning process. The concept is initially developed based on the overall outcomes you want to achieve, then the narrative will be written that enables the learning objectives to be realised. You can work alongside us to shape the concept, storyline and narrative or leave us to create it for you. Either way you will remain in control of the outcomes that your event will deliver.
Using the concept of backwards design we will then identify puzzles, challenges and activities as learning content for your event. You can select from our extensive portfolio of learning content or commission your own. You can find examples below or alternatively you can see some of the extensive range of puzzles and activities we've used in the past in our puzzle gallery.
Once these stages have been completed we create a delivery plan for your event. This includes selecting any 3rd party suppliers who might be required. This often includes:
- Venue event staff
- Photographers / Videographers
The delivery plan will therefore include everything from theatrical performances through to health and safety planning.
