Often, our team building activities are held in museums across New York City, Washington D.C., and San Francisco. But “location: museum” doesn’t always have to be the case for us to put together an incredible team building event. We are just as at home hosting team bonding competitions in a company’s office, designing breakout games for conferences, or planning, designing, and executing an entire conference for your company.

We love facilitating conferences for other companies or industries, like this one we did for the Florida Museum of Natural History.

A few months ago, the organizers of the EmpireJS conference asked us to create a custom scavenger hunt of the Financial District as the fun final event for their two-day convention. The conference planners wanted our help to end the workshops with a celebratory activity their guests, some 200 to 300 Javascript programmers from around the world, would really enjoy.

Our creative team set to work to develop an hour-long interactive scavenger hunt through the city’s streets where the conference was held. The hunt included a photo-taking challenge in addition to looking for specific objects. The hunt was designed to encourage interaction among the attendees as they explored the best of the Financial District. The final clue in their Museum Hack hunt led them to a bar that was also the venue for a party for all who attended. Once there, prizes were awarded and people got the chance to relax and enjoy themselves with friends, old and new.

The scavenger hunt was a great hit among participants who laughed and smiled as they explored places like Battery Park and Bowling Green. The planners for EmpireJS loved it so much, they mentioned they hope to work with Museum Hack again on next year’s conference!
