Planning the perfect activities for guests and vendors to participate in during your next conference can be a daunting task. Fortunately, Meeting Play has created a list of gamification ideas for event planners to consider for their next event. Here are our top three choices for creating a fun, engaging experience for attendees.
- Bingo– The five-letter word that everyone loves to yell. Playing bingo at your event is a simple way to improve networking between attendees. Create your own bingo cards based on the event’s theme to incorporate that aspect into the game. Ask vendors or sponsors to pitch in for the prizes attendees will receive if they win.
- Photo Contests– This is a great way to place the spotlight on attendees, products, services, event displays, and more. Create a selfie station for attendees to take part in and create an event hashtag so that they can share it on social media.
- Scavenger Hunt– Have attendees participate in a scavenger hunt to create a buzz around all the different aspects you have at your conference. If attendees are participating in the hunt, they may stumble upon a product or vender they might not have gone near if they weren’t playing the game.
We love hearing about all of the games that take place during conferences. What gamification ideas have been successful during your events? Let us know in the comments!
