Epoch Capital, 10th Anniversary Celebration Trip to Tokyo, Japan (60 pax)

THE BRIEF

To design, manage and host a group trip for 60 people to celebrate the company’s 10th anniversary. Half of the employees were based in London, the other half in Sydney. The client wanted a memorable trip that embraced the culture of the destination, allowed the staff from both locations ample time to bond, and reflected the values of the company, whilst celebrating their decade milestone.

OUR ROLE

33 Degrees proposed a variety of destinations (both in Australia and internationally) for the event. The client selected a destination that was midway between London and Sydney and was drawn to Tokyo for the unique experiences we could arrange. As their company still needed to continue operations during the trip (24/7 trading), we split their trip into two group trips of about 30 people per group participating in the identical itinerary. This also allowed us to provide a more intimate experience on both group trips, particularly with dining options and activities.

33 Degrees was then tasked with building the program for the trip consisting of unique activities, conference time and high-end dining for the four-day program. With an itinerary that included a day visit to Kyoto on the bullet train, a meet and greet with MasterChef Mr. Nobu, taking on a sumo wrestler, a tea ceremony with a Geisha, riding go-karts through the streets of Tokyo, building robots, experiencing ‘the future’ with prototype skeltronics suits and a visit to the famous Kill Bill restaurant, we ensured our guests had the most unique and unforgettable time.

THE OUTCOME

33 Degrees helped us organise an amazing work trip to Tokyo for 70 people! They assisted with every detail, flights, accommodation - nothing was too small or big of a request. They sourced the best venues, restaurants, activities and customised the trip to fit in with our needs.  The 33 Degrees team were on hand throughout the planning process and with us on both trips. We experienced cool activities that would not have been accessible to the public.  I would highly recommend Julie and her wonderful team, she has amazing contacts and knows her stuff! If you’re after a boutique high quality travel experience, 33 Degrees are your people.  Can’t wait for our next adventure with 33 Degrees
