Stamping out the Old, Scanning in the New to Increase Conference Engagement

SCANVenger Hunt Produces Gamification Platform that Drives Trade Show and Conference Engagement

Gone are the days of bingo boards, punch cards and stamps as a way to increase attendee engagement at conferences, trade shows and other large events.  Now event planners are turning to an innovative, fun and high-tech solution: the SCANVenger Hunt.

The SCANVenger Hunt is easy for both exhibitors and attendees to take part in.  Attendees use their smartphones to scan QR codes posted at each exhibitor’s booth.  The codes reveal questions the exhibitor formulates about their product or service.  Each correct answer allows the attendee to earn points toward prizes. This type of unique gamification increase trade show and conference engagement like no other platform as well as provided lead retrieval.

Tina Garcia, the executive director for the Southwest Veterinary Symposium, raved about how fast and fun the SCANVenger Hunt was for exhibitors and attendees at their latest conference.  “It was something new. It’s innovative.  There’s a lot of different programs out there that include paper books and exhibitors have to check a box on a paper copy and it’s something that’s kind of time intensive for the exhibitors,” Garcia said. “This was very technology-based. It was fast.  It was something that could enhance their experience with the participants.”

Recent attendees at Parker Seminars also raved about how fast and fun the SCANVenger Hunt was to participate in.  “The trail maps or the bingo cards or the things that have been used for years and years, they’re old news,” said one attendee.  “People don’t want to play anymore and vendors think they’re a hassle because you have to stop what you’re doing and sign something.  This was much easier. Very innovative.”
