Chicago Team Building Activities & Events
The windy city has much to offer besides great food and Oprah. Chicago offers prime sites for team building activities, from the shores of Lake Michigan to the high rise luxury hotels towering over the great Midwest city. As the nation’s leading conference destination, Chicago wants more than world class hotel amenities. They seek to give attendees an experience to remember; a way to build relationships and take the message back to work. Venture Up’s Chicago team building programs aim to engage staff in an experience that shows them new ways to view challenges and interact with each other.
Celebrating 30+ years in business, Venture Up has helped corporate leaders build staff relationships for conferences, events and on site training programs. More than 250,000 clients have kept us on track delivering creative team building events every time. Working with repeat clients — 80 percent of our business — drives us toward continuous innovation. Meeting planners are always looking for something different, something new.
In 1983 we went from being America’s first team building company, to the nation’s largest team building provider with programs in the U.S. and abroad. We work with people of all shapes, sizes and cultural backgrounds; and offer programs in several languages.

Build your Team
Don’t forget why we game. The most important thing about Venture Up games are they are fun.
