Corporate Team Building Activities DC

Welcome to the BEST Corporate Case Studies, a collection of exclusive insights into our client experience from initial inquiry through program delivery.

We wrote the book on corporate successful team building.


We were excited to facilitate an event in the nation’s capital and a popular destination for corporate team building activities DC. With its monuments, memorials, and fine cuisine, there is an abundance of sites to see. We had the pleasure of working with Capital City Events in planning a corporate team building activity for one of its clients and their 780 attendees. Capital City Events is a full-service destination management company specializing in the design and management of special events, citywide transportation systems, tours, seminars, leisure activities, entertainment, product introduction, and VIP services for corporations, incentive groups, trade associations, and government entities.

When they wanted to WOW their clients with a flawlessly executed team-building program, they contacted BEST. Best Corporate Events worked closely with Capital City Events in planning a memorable and fun event. When you are visiting the nation’s capital, the possibilities are endless. We were able to offer a variety of team-building options with dozens of meetings and event function space. From Charitable give back events like Bike Build Donation to help local children or Donation Nation Care Packs to help veterans.

Our signature City SmartHunt seemed like the right choice for the meeting attendees to be able to get outside and experience all the city has to offer. The end client was excited to engage their employees and stir up some friendly competition while having fun in this popular scavenger hunt.

Imagine your group dining alongside the Hope Diamond in the National Museum of Natural History or walking in George Washington’s footsteps while touring his Mount Vernon Estate. From the Library of Congress to the French Embassy to rooftops with incredible views – the possibilities are endless!

Capital City Events will partner with you from start to finish to design unique activities that unite, inspire, encourage and educate your guests — as they have the time of their lives in our Nation’s Capital.

The event’s starting point was at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. They are situated in the historic center of D.C. in iconic Woodley Park. Attendees enjoyed the beautiful landscaping and elegant ballroom as they prepared to set out into the city. The Washington Marriott Wardman Park offers 195,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space includes an on-site exhibit hall, conference rooms, breakout rooms, and ballroom venues of various sizes. Rest assured that we can provide an ideal event space rental for whatever you’re planning in D.C., regardless of size or scope.

Woodley Park is just steps from the red line Metro and National Zoo and a high starting point to take on a SmartHunt adventure!

Experience the city or location of your choice through a fun, collaborative, and entertaining adventure!

The City SmartHunt® is a creative way to experience the essence of your destination. Photo missions, video challenges, and trivia questions guide teams on a corporate scavenger hunt through monumental attractions, historic sites, and local gems. Your customized hunt, pre-loaded on our provided Apple iPad Minis, is tailored to fit your company objectives, group size, and location. If desired, our hunts can even include orienteering and geocaching.

Before teams walk out the door, the SmartHunt® begins with an introduction during which teams will learn how to navigate the SmartHunts App. After an energizing activity guided by our facilitator, teams are on their way!

Our SmartHunts App uses AT&T 4G LTE services and Wi-Fi to record photos, document videos, and conduct scoring. GPS tracking and a one-way messaging system allow facilitators to stay connected with teams throughout the hunt. Our proprietary app will never lose connectivity due to our system that incorporates triple connection redundancy.

As teams use strategy to navigate through the hunt efficiently, all photos and videos documented are presented in a slideshow at the concluding awards ceremony. Winning team members will also receive gold medals.

After the SmartHunt, we will send you a secure link to a private webpage that contains all the photos and videos shot by your group. The page also includes a professional highlight video that will be provided two weeks post event date.

Through shared laughter, songs, dance, and games, SmartHunts increase communication, enhance collaboration, and boost morale, bringing teams closer than ever before.

        What is a Keynote Speaker?

        Keynote Speaker is an often-misunderstood term associated with simply a motivational speaker, breakout speaker, industry expert, etc. Most professional speakers are not actual trained Keynote Speakers, who are specialists, therefore in much lower supply, and in higher demand.

        Keynote Speakers are experienced, professional communicators who engage an audience, capturing the essence of a client’s meeting. They are able to highlight it to their audience while simultaneously delivering their own key concepts and proprietary content in an entertaining and impactful way. Most companies understand that this specialization is very much worth the time (around an hour) and the investment.

        In order to capture the perfect essence, a Keynote Speaker spends the necessary time researching a client’s industry, their issues, and their audience to craft a customized presentation into a unique and distinctive moment specifically for the client’s event.

        As a top Keynote Speaker, Tom Leu strategically uses compelling storytelling, humor, powerful visuals, audio and video clips, and audience participation elements to weave an impactful message into your event in a fun and memorable way. Tom can also pair his Keynote with Best Corporate Events programming, laying a foundation and setting a tone that best prepares participants for maximum engagement in the forthcoming team events that day.
