Not many people know that VRPlayin is not just a playground for individuals, but also a perfect place for your corporate or team events. Ever since its opening in April 2017, VRPlayin has encompassed the philosophy of continuous improvements to maximize customer delight. Over the past couple of months new services and simplified processes have been born, including those offered for corporate or team events. And when we say we’re committed to maximizing customer delight we mean it. We know your time is valuable and because every second of your time at VRPlayin counts, we’re relentless in our pursuit of bringing you the best not just in terms of our content, but with our service and space as well. We’ve worked hard to build the experiences and activities you’re looking for with respect to team building purposes, and to provide easy to understand guides of how to effectively utilize Virtual Reality to both cooperate and compete. To get a bit of an introduction of how VRPlayin specifically caters toward team building services, consider reading our previous blog post here.
So far, the results are quite promising. VRPlayin has successfully hosted 80 corporate events since the launch of our team building packages in October 2017. Our customers have ranged from startups to big corporations including all 5 major banks, Amazon, LinkedIn and the Government of Ontario. Rest assured there’s a VRPlayin play package that suits your team size and budget, and although the majority of our customers are from downtown Toronto, we have also hosted companies from Kitchener, Waterloo, and even Ottawa, and none of them have regretted the commute for the awesome experiences they had.

Not only does it make it fun, but effective team building can benefit from a bit of competitiveness – something to bring out a side of the personality of your colleagues that may not often be shown around the office. This allows team members to get to know their teammates better, building greater rapport and potentially other talents that may help them become better employees when back in the work environment. Aside from competition, cooperation is another factor that can really bring together a team. Imagine a VR zombie apocalypse setting where team members have to watch each others back in order to survive waves of Zombies. Obviously this is something that can’t be accomplished in real life, but that doesn’t mean the results are still not extremely rewarding.
On top of the all the fun, team building factors mentioned above, VRPlayin is fully aware of the challenges an event coordinator or a company faces. In fact, we previously had an article about how to address them here. Therefore, VRPlayin has gone the extra mile, interviewing many team event organizers to help build all-around corporate play packages that make organizing a successful team building event a breeze. We know the hassle of talking to venues, the back and forth that often happens before an event can be set, and we’ve found ways in which to minimize the amount of discussion required. After we receive your inquiry, we send back our availabilities and packages, elaborating on all options including number of stations, people involved, alcohol packages, and catering options (seriously… trust us when we say we have the best caters in the city). After we get any additional questions and special requests, the next time you’ll have to deal with us will usually be simply confirming the date and time. 3 Steps. It can’t be simpler than that!
Since we’ve built our new packages we’ve discovered there are a few things that most companies are looking for. These include the following:
- Fun Activities that require extensive communication and cooperation/competition – At VRPlayin, although each individual is in their own dedicated VR station, our proprietary VOIP system enables each team member to communicate with their teammates with low latency and crystal clear voice chat as soon as they put on the Virtual Reality Headset. And then of course, we offer a large variety of team building suitable Virtual Reality experiences, as mentioned in the blog post “The Unforgettable Experiences at VRPlayin”.
- Room to be social – Besides the VR action, people like to chat and bond through casual and personal conversations. All of this requires additional space, and VRPlayin has you covered, with long benches, bar counters and stools for people to chat anywhere.
- Places to drink… – This is not something any Virtual Reality playground can offer. It requires experienced managers and carefully trained service personnels who, most importantly, must be licensed and examined by AGCO. VRPlayin is very proud to not just be the very first Virtual Reality Experience Centre that offers alcohol, but a place where you can be assured your needs will be handled appropriately and responsibly.
- …and have great food – Let’s face it: you can’t have fun on an empty stomach, and team building events at a Virtual Reality really are a feast on all senses. VRPlayin has hand-picked the most delicious caterers in the neighborhood who deliver consistent quality food on demand. So if you’re looking for food, menus and options of what VRPlayin offers, they can be downloaded on our Corporate Event Page.
