AOK has partnered with Exclusive Collection to offer online and real-time team building

AOK has teamed up with Exclusive Collection to create a portfolio of online activities, which will include real-time events from next year.

The activities have been developed in response to Covid-19 and are suitable online, as a hybrid event or face-to-face. The scenarios have been devised to help organisations engage, develop relationships or celebrate achievements, while following the latest government restrictions.

The suite of activities are available at Exclusive Collection hotels and can be bespoke to a client’s individual requirements. Using AOK’s black book of talent, celebrities can be brought in to lead and host the activities thereby ensuring maximum delegate engagement and a viable return on investment.

Stephanie Hall, Group Director of Sales & Marketing at Exclusive Collection, said: “We’re excited to work with AOK Events on these digital formats. We are fortunate to have loyal and repeat client bases and are being tasked by them to find new ways that they can continue to get their people or clients to engage while the traditional format is limited. This digitised online proposition sits well with our own business premise to innovate and to get the very best performance out of our people.”

Alex Hewitt, CEO of AOK Events Group, adds: “Staying engaged with your customers and staff has never been more important and we have created a wide range of truly innovative team building, training and performance management events for clients with every type of budget, that work both virtually and live. We have a long-standing relationship with Exclusive Collection, and we look forward to working with them and their customers over the months and years ahead, helping to deliver outstanding events.”

Exclusive Collection has reconsidered many of its meeting products in recent months including the addition of a broadcast quality studio and workspaces that reflect the casualisation of the conference market post Covid-19. To underline the company’s strength in the event sector, Pennyhill Park product was recently named as C&IT’s Hotel of the Year 2020.
