The inter-company competition aims to bring together 50 corporates for a fun-filled day out all-around Dubai to conquer seven thrilling challenges to win a coveted title and an exciting range of prizes.
With employee engagement and gamification being a popular topic of discussion, this adrenaline-rush filled challenge will test teams of four on their mental and physical fitness, quick thinking skills and teamwork.
