Team Building & Celebrating
Team Building & Celebrating
Modern events are more than just a single space rented for a set period. Your guests want to be engaged with inspirational settings, great food and fun activities. While every room at Vantage more than fulfills those first two desires, to help with the third we are actively collaborating with select proprietors around the city to provide your group with a bespoke and thoroughly enjoyable half-day, full-day or multi-day itinerary. Learn more about our venue partners by reading below or contact our events team and let us help plan your schedule of events.
Play The Game
Great for team building, fundraisers, client entertainment, product launches and festive parties.
High functioning teams are hard to build. And let’s face it, team building can be awkward. You know what we’re talking about. Forced conversations, highly skilled athletes dominating any sort of game and venues that are so big and offer so many activities that nobody stays together.
That’s where Lob comes in. It’s a new game specifically designed to bring people together through play. It’s challenging, with zero learning curve, so anyone can play, and everyone has a blast. Imagine a game that has the power to break down walls and start conversations.
Lob has been listed as a BlogTO “Top 10 great ideas for corporate events and after-work social functions in Toronto”!
Virtual Team Building
Consider us your one-stop-shop for party in a box. We know how hard it is to pull off an engaging social or team building event at the best of times, so when it’s a social-distanced, #wfh event – well, that can be enough to drive anyone to drink. And that’s where we come in…
Book your virtual wine and cheese workshop, and we’ll take care of everything. We ship your guests an expertly curated, safely assembled, Instagram-worthy wine, cheese and charcuterie kit.
