GRAND RAPIDS, MI - The Gift and Home Trade Association (GHTA) has partnered with the Disney Institute for The Incredible Race, which will take place during its 10th Annual Conference, October 2-4.
The Incredible Race is a teambuilding activity designed to help encourage teamwork, communication and problem-solving techniques for GHTA conference attendees, which include sales representatives, manufacturers, retailers and other industry resource suppliers.
Set in the Disney Theme Parks, participants will solve a series of challenging puzzles and team activities to progress to the next challenge point. The top three teams with the best communications, teamwork and finishing times will win.
"This is a one-of-a-kind , education experience for our guests," said John Keiser, chair of the GHTA Conference Committee and board vice president, in a statement. "The Incredible Race develops critical team success factors, including collaborations, leadership, problem solving and trust through a fun, engaging and interactive activity. Each of these factors allow for professional growth and development within the work environment."
This year, the 2012 GHTA Conference will be held at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort in Orlando, FL. Space for the Incredible Race is limited, but attendees who register prior to the May 31 early bird deadline are guaranteed a spot.
