Passionate about team events – the team behind the idea!
In this post we wanted to introduce ourselves…
Why team events and group activities
Have you ever participated in a team event? We bet you did and enjoyed it!
We certainly do and we are passionate about team events and all sorts of group activities. Those rare moments spent together are golden. They help us feel connected in an authentic way. Discovering something together or learning a new skill with colleagues or friends is the best way of connecting and getting to know each other. Group events bring a sense of being one team as colleagues or family, reminding us the importance of being human.
So we thought – why not more of that! Why not more of sushi making classes or learning stand up paddling with a family? Why not spend more face-to-face and purposeful time together?
The hassle or organizing a group activity
But organizing such group activity has never been easy…
Do you remember how much time you had to invest into organizing one? It starts with knowing the purpose. Answering clearly what the group wants to do and why. Once you are convinced by the need you start the search, it takes hours browsing through the Internet or using word of mouth and asking around. And finally you have got a couple of options! You still need to get in touch with the provider, check the availability, price… Call back… It just takes too much time!
On a mission to make booking group activities and events easier…
Well, we started our journey to make this easier. We have created a one stop shop with all team events and activities, workshops available on one platform. With WeWent you can browse through categories and objectives as well as locations and just find the right team or group activity!
We know people tend to go mainstream or repeat what they have done already. But there is so much to discover out there! So at WeWent we made the commitment to engage with event providers who can offer original, unusual, creative and different event ideas. We are dedicated to helping people grow their undiscovered talents and share them with others by converting their skills into group activities.
WeWent is an online marketplace for people to list, discover and book unique group events and activities.
Who is it for?
It’s for everyone who is keen to organize a group event –team assistants and professionals dedicated to their teams or friends and families wanting to spend purposeful time together.
Our provider database consists of not only well-known event companies but also individuals wanting to share their talents (cooks, DIY experts, artists, etc.). Moreover volunteering events by NGOs will become available to book for free or for a very small fee as part of our dedication to give back to society. As an online marketplace we are here to support event providers with making their offer more accessible and easily bookable.
