This made us event more determined to see the Games Closing Awards presented in real style and we are delighted to have secured one of the genuine jewels of the region at Alton Towers."

Ellie Jones, Business Development Manager at Alton Towers said, "The Alton Towers Resort is delighted to be supporting the UK Corporate Games as Platinum Champion this summer. As sponsors and hosts of the Games' Team Leader in March and Awards Ceremony in September, Alton Towers is proud to be involved in an event that supports bringing business people together in a fun, interactive and engaging way.

Much of what the Games stands for in terms of promoting team building, enhancing staff morale and employee engagement is largely reflected in the corporate events offering that the Alton Towers Resort provides.

Local teams including Vodafone, Alton Towers and Bet 365 will be getting active and challenging representatives of major household names from across the country - from the likes of EY, Lloyds Banking Group and Intel. Doug White, Global Partnerships Director for the Games said, "we have been thrilled by the appetite of our great supporting companies to be involved this year and we this this as a resounding endorsement of the continued impact that the Corporate Games is having for businesses around the UK. The location has proven to be as popular as we had hoped and visitors have already commented on the great array of facilities and their close proximity to each other which really helps."
