5 reasons to take your next teambuilding event outdoors

5 reasons to take your next teambuilding event outdoors

Boasting around 300 days of sunshine a year and a mild climate year-round, the Maltese Islands are the perfect destination for outdoor events. An outdoor venue could be the perfect setting for your next teambuilding event, particularly if the majority of your company’s workforce spends most of its time sitting down at a desk. 

If you’re worried about moving your annual indoor team event outdoors, we’re here to assure you that the change will be for the better. In fact, according to Marketing Insider Group, over 90% of event planners agree that non-traditional venues are trending compared to five years ago.

Now, here’s why we think you should be venturing into the great outdoors with confidence for your next teambuilding event:


1. Feel Good Factor


Have you noticed how, after spending some time outdoors, you feel less tense and less stressed? That’s because being outside not only boosts your mood, but also improves both your mental and your physical wellbeing in the long term.

Turn off the screens and bring a (literal) breath of fresh air into your next teambuilding event by transitioning to the outdoors and organising an activity which will bring out your team’s adventurous side. Dive into one of our Water Sports Challenges or host your very own island takeover with a jam-packed day of exploring our sister island Gozo in tuk tuks.


2. Taking Advantage of a Bigger Space


There’s only so much you can do indoors given the limited space that your guests have to move around. Outdoor event venues, on the other hand, allow you to be more flexible with the types of experiences which you can create for your guests.

From fun-filled sporting activities, such as archery or the Whacky Olympics, to a relaxing evening on the beach gathered around a bonfire, there are endless opportunities to bring your entire team together and foster a sense of camaraderie among all its members.


3. Better Value for Money


Setting up your event against a naturally picturesque backdrop means that you can go light on the decorations and leave it to nature (with a little bit of help from our team) to spruce up your venue.  

We’ve transformed dreary outdoor spaces into Magical Secret Garden Experiences, embellished with floral archways and wooden swings, and created the most enchanting spaces by decking out venues, from rooftops to vineyards, in dazzling fairy lights. Our pro planners and props masters will be on hand not only to bring your vision to life, but also to get you more bang for your buck.


4. Sustainability


Why confine your team to an enclosed space when there’s a world of good for them to do outdoors? Give your employees a teambuilding experience they’ll never forget by encouraging them to give back to the community. 

With more and more companies upping their corporate responsibility efforts, take this as an opportunity to roll your sleeves up and rally the team for a company-wide tree-planting activity. Now that summer’s almost over, it’s also a good time to show our beaches some tlc after another busy season, so you could also consider organising an underwater or beach clean-up for your next teambuilding activity.


5. A Completely Customised Event


The aim of teambuilding events is to break down walls and there’s nothing better than an outdoor venue to promote openness, right? Perhaps the best thing about organising an event outdoors is that there are no walls restricting what you can do with the space, meaning that you can truly make the event 100% your own.


Now that you’ve got a better idea of what we can do for you, it’s over to you to decide – will your next teambuilding activity be held indoors or outdoors? Either way, our team is here to help. Get in touch with us on info@jugsmalta.com to start planning your next outdoor team event.
