A group of event
organisers were given a real taste of Sweden yesterday when they took
part in the ‘Meet Eat Compete SweDish’ agency challenge at Sundial Group’s Highgate House in Northampton.
The 30 organisers,
from companies including MCI UK, P&MM, BI Worldwide, Zibrant and Accomplished
Events, were pitted against each other in teams through various challenges, including
a canapé challenge with a Swedish chef, making traditional midsummer floral
head wreaths and solving the ‘sword in the stone’ team building quiz. The team from P&MM triumphed, with team members winning a trip to Gothenburg.
The event -
organised in conjunction with M&IT magazine, Visit Sweden and its
partner hotels and convention bureaux - also included a Swedish smorgasbord
lunch and a barbecue in the evening.
