Let's Go Mad
MAD stood for Modern, Agile and Digital. Just what Axiata was looking for in their next company retreat / conference.
Being at the top of the telco industry the staff were use to the best of experiences. The standard was set high and the trip was meant to run like perfect clockwork. From the arrangement of logistics, to the resort experience and the various conferences, team building excercises, leisure activities and overall management of the entire retreat expectations were unsurpassable.
Big Bash was brought in to manage the retreat 360, from event management, logistics, planning, design, pre-teaser videos, site recces, liasons with third parties, digital integration and manpower.
How We Dit It
We firstly broke our teams up to various sub-teams, handling the various aspects of the retreat. The teams all had to ensure that they worked in unison and the guest experience flowed seamlessly from event to event.
As with any retreat there were challenges in moving 200 over pax by flights. Flight delays being the most challenging, we had our crew on standby at all airport checkpoints to ensure everyone moved through smoothly and noone missed any of the scheduled meetings.
The staff stayed in two prestigous hotels in Langkawi, The Westin and St Regis. Our teams ensure transfers and guest management between both hotels were precise to ensure that the tight schedule of all the paritcipants were kept in place.
Another binding factor came in the form of a customised app made specifically for the retreat. In it were individual schedules for each participant, agendas, maps, announcements and a check in system for a city wide treasure hunt.
