We offer venue rental, expert advice and catering for Corporate away days! Why do a corporate event at Playopolis?
Unique – How many away days end up being the same mix of a physical activity and some rounds down the pub after? Board gaming corporate days offer something that your company has never experienced before, and you may even create a few converts to the hobby!
Fun and Simple – Games are meant to be enjoyable! We can recommend the right games for the type and size of your company, and we can help ensure that even people who’ve never even rolled a dice in their life can quickly learn, enjoy and win and many of the major games in our library.
Accessible – Unlike many other options for company away days, a day of board gaming doesn’t exclude anyone with physical disabilities from joining in the fun with easy disabled access to the main, upstairs cafe.
Social – How often do large team away days just result in people hanging out with the same people they sit next to in the office? Board games make it much easier for groups to mingle and for people to interact and have fun without awkwardness or drinking (Though drinking and board games is a great combination…)
Team Building – There are few things that require co-ordination and teamwork than the best board games. We can introduce you to games that require communication, planning and trust, while still actually being fun to play.
Great Value – We offer very competitive rates, a large amount of flexibility for different companies and a great way to entertain even larger companies without having to spend the entire entertainment budget for the year!
