Journey to the Destination

The journey begins to the destination at 8 AM on 24th December. The entire Dhaka city was covered in fog on the morning of the winter season. In the early foggy morning, team members of Riseup Labs came to the Headquarter office one by one and waited for the others to begin the journey. All of them were excited to go to the Riseup Labs Annual Retreat 2022.

After everyone arrives at the Headquarters, the journey begins to the Resort. The day tour of Riseup Labs gets interesting from there. Two Buses and a car were carrying the Team Riseup Labs.

Though they were going separately, each transport got amusing when team members started singing and dancing. They were enjoying every bit of moment while the transports were taking them to the destination. Finally, team Riseup Labs arrives at the Resort at 9 AM.

Annual Retreat 2022 Photo Session

After arriving at the destination, the HR team distributes the company t-shirt to everyone. For some team members, it was their first company t-shirt from Riseup Labs. So, that made them happier. The t-shirt distribution became a festival for the team members. Even the CEO and the core team members also wear the same t-shirt.

Everyone became busy with photo sessions after wearing the Riseup Labs t-shirt. Each team took a group photo along with their members.

Cricket Tournament

A Cricket tournament was organized at the Annual Retreat 2022. Four teams competed in the tournament. The most exciting game in the Retreat was this event. All of the teams played their best to win the tournament. The final was a high-voltage match between the Sales and Marketing and Software Quality Assurance teams. And finally, the Sales and Marketing team becomes the Champion of the Cricket tournament.


The team members were very enthusiastic while playing the Cricket match. So, they dived into the swimming pool right after the tournament ended. But it wasn’t less attractive to them. All of them enjoyed swimming very much; some of them swam for two hours straight.

Pillow Passing Game

But the Pillow Passing game of Riseup Labs Annual Retreat 2022 was worth watching. 15 male members played the game along with 6 female members of Riseup Labs.
