What do you get when you put splendid landscapes and a unique teambuilding programme together in one of the world’s most culturally and geographically diverse destinations?  

The result is Tribespirit Teambuilding, a game-changing app designed to give meeting and incentive travel delegates an immersive experience by completing a series of tasks on the GoTeam mobile app.

Following its initial launch in the capital of Kuching in 2021, this cutting-edge teambuilding mobile app has now made its way to Miri, Sarawak’s up-and-coming business event city, which now has its sights set on attracting new markets and increasing delegate numbers with the introduction of the cutting-edge teambuilding mobile app.

The Tribespirit Teambuilding was recently put to the test by members of the Miri Business Events Committee (MBEC), who completed a circuit of physical challenges within the city that tested their skills in leadership and teamwork. By sunset, and with tasks completed, they sat down to a gala dinner overlooking the crystal-clear waters of the South China Sea.

The MBEC loved the experience and has now embraced it for their city in an effort to attract more international corporate meeting and incentive groups seeking something a little different to the norm.

Not only does the experience offer great fun, the programme also enhances team cohesiveness for groups while at the same time immerses participants in the stunning city and surrounds of Miri.

Furthermore, the beauty of Tribespirit Teambuilding mobile app is that users can be remotely tracked, challenges are GPS triggered, while updates, feedback and scores are all available in real-time, providing a truly tailored experience for all participants.

MBEC Chairman and Miri Mayor, YB Adam Yii, said Miri is a well-known tourist destination and has the potential to be equally as popular for corporate meetings and incentives due to its magnificent natural and cultural attractions that surround this city.

“This teambuilding programme adds value to our industry’s existing tourism products and increases Miri’s value proposition as a whole,” he said.

“Our goal is to give the best, most motivating experience to incentive groups in Miri.”

Assisting Miri in its strategic destination development plan is Business Events Sarawak (BESarawak) which is working in close partnership with the MBEC to ensure the city is ready to host what it anticipates will be a growing number of national and international meetings and incentives.

“Our principal move this year was to expand the existing support system to attract more corporate meetings and incentive groups to Miri,” said BESarawak CEO, Amelia Roziman.

“The support given to incentives houses, destination management companies, corporate organisations and alike for this particular segment is larger and more substantial than before.”

BESarawak and MBEC co-developed the Tribespirit programme with training and teambuilding provider Asia Ability and industry partners, Miri City Council and Sarawak Forestry Corporation, to ensure the experience was done successfully without compromising on the elements that make a teambuilding programme effective.
