Interactive Name Badges
I wanted to take a quick moment to let you know about SCANTrivia interactive name badges!   SCANTrivia Interactive Name Badges provide a great way for your attendees to network and learn more about one another. Adding more value than the traditional name badges, SCANTrivia Interactive Name Badges allow users to scan and either make a connection and/or answer a trivia question to learn more about them. Once the question has been answered correctly, the player accumulates points and ultimately levels up into prize categories. The SCANTrivia Interactive Name Badges can be used in conjunction with the SCANTrivia platform game elements including the exhibitor locations, the Interactive Game Wall and the leader board. As your attendees level up they’ll earn badges for their activity and see their points show up in real-time on the leader board. Incorporating the Interactive Name Badges into your event can increase attendee-to-attendee networking while adding excitement that’s sure to keep the conversations going. If you are looking to increase attendee to attendee engagement, check out the SCANTrivia Interactive Networking Badges.  Looking to engage attendees with sponsors?  Check out the SCANTrivia Interactive Game wall!   SCANTrivia…  • Reinforces conference presentation content • Is a great ice-breaker  • Creates ROI opportunities through resell and sponsorship real estate.

Gamification
I wanted to take a quick moment to let you know about SCANTrivia gamification!   Gamification has been defined in many ways by companies who provide the service to their clients, as well as by corporate subject matter experts. It has replaced social media as the new buzz-word and its meaning is quickly being honed by trail-blazers who pave the way making the word a ubiquitous corporate term for early adopters to exploit in their blogs. In other words, the box has been created and “gamification” is being stuffed inside. Although “gamification” has been coined as a word to represent a process that involves game-like components that integrate a targeted set of mechanics for a specific user group, we feel flexibility  is necessary in order for those mechanics to resonate with the end-user. Therefore, we address your project needs by taking into consideration your collective body of attendees and corporate culture  before assessing the best game mechanics and components for your event. We can list the popular game elements such as points, badges, levels, and leaderboards along with their mechanics but I’m sure you have learned all about them during your research on gamification. We’d rather focus on how effective these elements can be when they are assembled in a manner that delivers optimum results. Whether you aim to drive traffic to exhibitor booths, increase sponsor interaction or attendee networking our platforms are flexible enough to satisfy each stakeholder. If you are looking to increase attendee to attendee engagement, check out the SCANTrivia Interactive Networking Badges.  Looking to engage attendees with sponsors?  Check out the SCANTrivia Interactive Game wall!   SCANTrivia…  • Reinforces conference presentation content • Is a great ice-breaker  • Creates ROI opportunities through resell and sponsorship real estate.

Interactive Game Wall
I wanted to take a quick moment to let you know about SCANTrivia interactive game wall! The Interactive Game Wall (IGW) always seems to be the big hit at every conference or trade show for driving sponsor engagement and attendee interaction. The 8’x’10’ wall has 30 QR codes that link to questions about the sponsor’s product or service which extend the value well beyond the traditional static logo placement. When participants answer the question correctly, the following page is embedded with a link that allows them the opportunity to learn even more about the brand by visiting the sponsor’s web site. Placing the Interactive Game Wall (IGW) in high traffic locations also increases attendee engagement. The IGW, used in conjunction with the SCANTrivia Leaderboard, creates a casual meeting ground for attendees as they play in a concentrated area to earn points. The IGW not only provides an avenue to educate and engage, but it also brings a lot of excitement to your event as players see themselves climb up the leaderboard with every earned point. Your sponsors will be pleased to see that the IGW provides a deeper level of engagement in comparison to traditional promotional methods such as exposure on swag bags and conference booklets. Sponsors also capture walk-by impressions from attendees that see their 65″ banner as they pass through the high-traffic area. If you are looking to increase attendee to attendee engagement, check out the SCANTrivia Interactive Networking Badges.  Looking to engage attendees with sponsors?  Check out the SCANTrivia Interactive Game wall!   SCANTrivia…  • Reinforces conference presentation content • Is a great ice-breaker  • Creates ROI opportunities through resell and sponsorship real estate.
