It’s been a phenomenal year for the Corporate Games!

2015 has been a fantastic year for us at the Corporate Games! We have managed to stage huge Games all over the world, from Stoke and Staffs to Sydney,Transylvania to Tokyo Each Games has been different but each has been a wonderful success in it’s own special way.

The Games has always sought to improve the health and wellbeing of staff from businesses of all shapes, sizes and sectors, and this year has been no exception. Your feedback has been brilliant and so motivating; we can clearly see the positive impact that the Games has made in the workplace to so many organisations around the world by encouraging employees to be active and take up sport whilst having a great time with your colleagues.

The year kicked off with a bang with a brand new Games in Asia. The Okinawa Corporate Games was a resounding success in its inaugural year.  The Corporate Games Team in Okinawa did an amazing job of organising and preparing the Games and it has to be applauded for the incredible welcome that they gave entrants from all across the world as well as the precision of the event delivery.  Hundreds of organisations across Japan fully embracing the Games and all it has to offer. The Games saw teams of all sizes come together for a weekend of fun and sporting competition, everyone had such a good time and this success has built a strong platform for the Games on the Island in 2016 and beyond.

In the UK, the summer was once again another huge season. With the World Corporate Cup of Soccer taking place in May in association with West Ham United FC at Upton Park and the UK Corporate Games taking place in June, hosted by Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. Both events were hailed as hugely successful by the host destination and from all those who took part. Both weekends brought together organisations from all over the UK and across Europe and it was great to see so many existing and new businesses represented and having such a great time.  Furthermore, magnificent Games took place in Bucharest, Cape Town, Monterrey in Mexico, Istanbul and Annecy in France.

However, there were even more major events in the calendar for us this year, with the World Corporate Games in Mexico City and the Asia-Pacific Corporate Games in Tokyo, both events took place on the same weekend in November and highlighted the global reach of the Worldwide Corporate Games Community. We were delighted to see these Games were very well-attended after of all of the hard work that had gone in to both events and its was fantastic to see thousands of people from individual sole traders, right up to huge multi-national market leaders take part in the Games. Mexico City was an impressive host for the World Corporate Games but next year this prestigious Games will move to a different world-renowned City, so watch this space for the announcement of the next World Corporate Games. Also, due to the Success of the Asia-Pacific Corporate Games,   the Japanese Corporate Games Team have confirmed a 2016 Games in the Capital city once more.

November was arguably the biggest month in the Corporates Games calendar this year, or perhaps of all time. With the World Corporate Games and the Asia-pacific Corporate Games taking place at the same time, as well as the massive Australian Corporate Games.  Australia hosts three editions of the Corporate Games each year. In Queensland and New South Wales earlier in the year and then finally in November for the Melbourne edition. The Australian Corporate Games is always one of the best attended Corporate Games and it has regularly attracted up to 10,000 participants from hundreds of organisations across Australia and further afield.

On behalf of us all here at the World Headquarters of the Corporate Games, we would like to thank you all for your continued support and efforts in all of our Games around the world. This year has been another superb year on the Corporate Games calendar, and will be one to remember.

Thank you once again to all those who have taken part in the Corporate Games this year and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We are looking forward to 2016 and all the new Games that have been scheduled around the world, so watch this space for updates in the new year and we hope to see you very soon. To all of you that celebrate, we wish you a great Christmas with all your family and friends and we hope you all have a happy and successful new year with many more to come.
