First year in trading
A year later Darren and I have renewed our membership for the Sydney Hills Business Chamber. We joined the Chamber before we even had an office to work from. We knew that Escape Rooms was a relatively new concept in Australia. So we thought it would be a good idea to join early to start the education process of what an Escape Room is all about and how it can be used as a useful tool for team building experiences.
Over the past 12 months, not only did we fit out our office for Elude Escape Rooms in September, 2017. We opened our first Escape Room in November, 2017 utilizing some of the wonderful business chamber members as testers for our room.
March, 2018 saw the opening of our second escape room and along with that has come some rewarding clients.

We have had dealings with a few of the Sydney Hills Business Chamber members. Teams from International Production and Taylor Nicholas Hills have done team building with us and working with their coach also a Sydney Hills Business Chamber member John Drury.
