Bluehat Group's UK office delivered 10 per cent more international events in 2015, after signing its 25th international licensee for its tablet-based treasure hunt Go Team.


The team building and corporate events agency capped off 2015 with a total of 22 events, up from 20 in 2014, while its US-branch saw a 30 per cent increase in events in the same year, delivering 40.


The company's popular Go Team app was also licensed to its 25th market, Colombia.


Commercial director Ben Parkinson said: "It has been a great year for us. I don’t know of any other tablet app that has seen such global take up as our Go Team, while the number of international events run from the UK office are up 10 per cent."


2015 also saw Bluehat help launch the official Guinness World Records Team Challenge, and the company has plans to take it to North America this year. Bluehat also participated in the biennial conference held by Catalyst Global in Bangkok, meeting up with its 38 other partners.


Parkinson added: "As part of the only global alliance of team building companies and with partners in over 40 cities across the world, we are able to deliver UK quality team events abroad at a fraction of the cost of our competitors as we can source experienced team building event crew and equipment from our partners in their local territories. This reduces the cost of delivery which historically can be more than the cost of the actual event.


"We also remain in control of event delivery with the project managers, event managers and presenters that our clients know and trust whilst additional staff and equipment can be more easily sourced in the local region."


CEO Tim Shepley said: “With an increasing need for global organisations to engage their teams in a common message, using consistent methods, we expect this upward trend of business to continue into 2016.”
