What Do Event Industry Experts Say About Gamification & Engamio?
Event gamification is a modern strategy commonly being acknowledged by event professionals across the globe. It is incorporated essentially to upgrade the experience of the guests and to boost audience engagement. What makes gamification so dynamic and popular is its capacity to attract people. As opposed to just shouting banners or slogans at prospective attendees, you're making the action of engagement with your event entertaining and immersive for them.
Event gamification also urges participants to be more active via social media by encouraging them to use event-related hashtags, etc. Attendees are invited to participate in various challenges and activities to get scores and rank on leaderboards. In fact, gamification is more than just contests, puzzles, and selfie games. It serves as a perfect tool for ice-breaking, boosting event ROI, collecting analytical data for KPIs, and offering an interactive, exciting experience to participants.
