The Pokémon Go phenomenon continues to sweep the nation and Beaumont Estate, part of the PH Hotels Collection in Old Windsor, has responded by launching a new themed breakout offer: Go Catch’em.
Delegates, or Pokémon trainers, attending meetings and conferences at the venue can retreat outdoors to explore Beaumont’s vast grounds in search of the virtual critters. The idea aims to break up the day’s agenda.
Beaumont’s general manager Paul Duggan said: “Pokémon Go is everywhere, played by both children and adults alike. It provides a great opportunity to get out and explore in virtual and real time. With this concept in mind we’ve launched a breakout offering which allows delegates to take in the hotel’s 40 acres, which might otherwise be missed when hosting an indoor event, while enjoying refreshments on the go.”
Go Catch’em sees refreshments served during lunch and tea breaks packaged up for delegates to takeaway, providing more time to find and catch Pokémon outdoors. Delegates are welcome to play in groups or solo and can help themselves to sweet shop style confectionary on their return. Go Catch’em can also be used as an ice-breaker prior to meeting, conference or networking with teams selected to find specific characters within an allotted time. New Pokémon trainers will be briefed with instruction cards for both IOS and android phones.
PokeStops at Beaumont Estate include monuments and special features within the grounds. Pokémon trainers can expect to find Clefairy, Onix, and Ghastly among the characters at Beaumont.
