Business vibe and nature: Brussels has it all for Team Building

Brussels is a thriving business and political hub, with people from all around the world living and working in the city and its surroundings, and with easy access to nature minutes away from downtown. That’s why we consider it has all what it takes to be an epicentre for team building activities!

Besides holding the headquarters of the European Union, there are around 50,000 businesses in Brussels (including more than 2200 foreign companies). This means there’s a lot of people from other cities and abroad who move there to work, so Team Building plays an important role to integrate them in new and diverse working environments

So having many companies of all kinds, with different requirements and wishes, has created a demand and a favourable environment for Team Building, and that’s why the options in Brussels are so well developed. As discussed in our previous article (What is Team Building and why is it important), this is key to boost team cohesion, by improving the group dynamics and increasing employee engagement. 

And the possibilities for Team Building activities make a qualitative leap when you consider that the city is surrounded by the beautiful Sonian forest! This makes Brussels a quite unique place to enjoy the benefits of outdoor team building activities. Only 20 minutes away from downtown, and with very easy access, you can organise an activity in nature, which can be full-day or combined with a working session at the office. Ideal in terms of time-optimization.

Either if it’s within and around the city, or in Knokke Out Waterloo, our venue for activities located right at the doors of the forest, check our selected top 5 activities for team building in Brussels!

All these activities can also be combined with a lunch or dinner, and no matter the company or team size, there’s always something suitable that can be done.

For smaller teams, there are small team building activities such as Lego Challenge, Pathfinder and City/Venue Play that are great options because they don’t require much logistics to set them up, so the starting price per person is low. And for tech-oriented and creative teams, there are great alternatives offered by the Wannapplay department, which specialises in innovative team building and gaming experiences.

And as a complement of the activities listed above, we also developed with some of our partners ‘Meet Up Your Team’, a catalogue for meeting-related team building activities, that can be organised before, in between, or after a meeting. An effective ice breaker can really optimise and set the mood for a successful meeting!

Know-how and Logistics: People-First’s added value

Taking advantage of all the benefits that Brussels offers for Team Building, Knokke-Out Waterloo venue is a great asset for organising unforgettable experiences for all types of companies and teams. A perfect mixture of the city’s comfort and nature’s enchantment, we have there a first-class venue, all the know-how and tools to prepare the team building activities in itself, and the catering service for lunch/dinner/parties. Everything ‘in house’, which makes it more efficient to organise, with top quality,  and at a competitive price.

From there we can also set up mixed-phygital-activities, which combine an in-person event with a virtual complement. This is a consolidating trend in Team Building, and an ideal option  for teams and companies that are partly based in Belgium (they attend the physical event), and partly based outside Brussels and/or abroad (they participate virtually).

And all our operations are developed taking into account our new Impact-Strategy, which aims to have a positive impact from an environmental, social and human point of view. This includes collaborating with local partners, and prioritising local providers to work towards sustainable team building. Having the team and the logistics so close to Brussels is a great starting point to reduce the environmental impact.
