Cebu is a prime destination for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibits (MICE) in the Philippines. A segment of the MICE market is composed of organizations having their team building events in Cebu. This is a market being served by Cebu Teambuilding Services.

Team Building + Metro Cebu Tour
In March 2014, Cebu Teambuilding Services was hired by General Electric Company-Retail Financing to do an Amazing Race-inspired team building program for around 40 employees. The group responded to the challenge and designed an urban race with challenges scattered in places of tourist interest around the cities of Lapulapu, Cebu, and Mandaue. The challenges also allowed participants to learn the local culture such as learning a few Cebuano words, singing a Cebuano folk song, interacting with locals, and enjoying Cebuano foods. The rave reviews from participants of this first event encouraged us to continue to market this event, especially for organizations not based in Cebu.
Cebu Urban Race Team Building
Inspired by the TV hit series Amazing Race, Cebu Teambuilding Services designed an urban race as a team building theme. The objective is to market the urban race team building theme to organizations based outside Cebu, although Cebu-based organizations can still opt for this program.
The urban race team building theme is designed in such a way that participants get to optimize both the experience participating in a team building program and explore Cebu through some of its heritage sites where most of the challenges will happen.
2 Program Options: Race-type or Scavenger Hunt-type Program
There are two options for the urban race team building theme: a linear race and a non-linear scavenger hunt. In the linear race type of program, succeeding challenges are revealed once participants complete a prior task. In the scavenger hunt type of program, participants complete a list of challenges revealed at the start of the program where they decide which tasks to complete first.
Nature of Challenges
The nature of challenges in the urban race team building program largely involves appreciating the local culture and heritage. Sample challenges are:
- Create a music video of a Cebuano folk song.
- Learn to dance the Sinulog with candle vendors at the Basilica Minore del Sto. Nino.
- Learn the 8 basic strikes of the traditional Cebuano martial art of Arnis.
- Take a group picture inside the Philippines' oldest dated house.
- Take a photo of an old plancha in one of the oldest Philippine houses.
Location of Challenges
The urban race team building theme is designed in a way that participants experience Cebu as a local Cebuano would on a daily basis. Participants get to interact with locals, learn how to commute from one place to another, and negotiate with local vendors. While at the same time, participants also get to visit places of tourist interest. Most of the challenge stations are scattered in areas around Mandaue City, Lapulapu City, and Cebu City. Probable locations of challenges are at Muelle Osmena wharf and lighthouse, Mactan Shrine, Fort San Pedro, Fuente Osmena Circle, Plaza Independencia, Basilica Minore del Sto. Nino, Colon Street, and Plaza Hamabar.
