Earn Gamification Points Through the Attendee App

Great news! You can now earn gamification points through the Attendee App, making your event experience more exciting and rewarding.

The attendee app is now available for download for iOS and Android users.

Important Notes:

  • All the challenges below can be applied to in-person events, except for watching sessions through the app. Participants can still get points when they check in to sessions.

  • Please ensure you install the latest app version to see the latest updates.

  • If you have a White Label Attendee App and want to test the app gamification on a test event, please send us the test event URL so that we can include it in the app; this may take 2 to 3 days to process.

Gamification Challenges

The available challenges and actions to earn gamification points may vary based on the event organizers' configuration. Here is a complete list of actions to earn gamification points through the Attendee App.

1. Early Ticket Purchase and Enter the Event Early

If the event organizers have set up Early bird challenges, you can earn points if you're one of the first few to buy a ticket to the event and/or when you enter their event early.

Once you enter the event through the app, the points for these challenges should appear on the leaderboard.

If you're at an in-person event, you can also get points when you check in at the event venue through the kiosk or staff assistance.

2. Update Your Profile

After entering the event through the app, open your profile, update any field, and save to earn points!

3. Connect With Attendees

You can send connection requests to other attendees, and when the request is approved, both participants can get points. To do so, go to People, search for the attendee, and click the connect icon from their profile.

At an in-person event, you can also connect by scanning the other attendee's QR code through QR scan and clicking Connect.

4. QR Code Hunt

If you're at an in-person event, the organizer may post a QR code somewhere in the venue and challenge you to find it. Once you locate the QR code, scan it using the QR Scan icon on the app to earn points!

5. Check In to Sessions

To earn points at an in-person event, you can present your QR code from the attendee app to the staff at the session room's entrance. The staff can check you into the session without scanning your QR, and you can still get points!

6. Watch Sessions

Another way to earn gamification points is to watch sessions from the app. This challenge does not apply to in-person events. Note that there may be a minimum duration requirement for joining or watching a session, so check the challenge details to ensure you meet the criteria for earning the points. You may also earn gamification points by watching recordings of past sessions if the event organizers have included this challenge.

  • Main Stage and Regular sessions can trigger points.

  • You won't be able to join workshops and networking sessions through the app, so if there are challenges for these sessions, you can join through a browser.

  • The continuing education challenge is not applicable in the attendee app; if this challenge is in the event, you may access a browser to earn points.

Click the Agenda button to see the list of sessions, and click the Join Session button to attend the live session. After the session, head back to the Lobby and click the Gamification button to check your progress!

7. Participate in Session Activities

While in the session, you can earn points by sending a message through the chat, answering polls, and posting a question in Q&A.

8. Visit Exhibitor Booths

The event organizers may include challenges where you can earn gamification points by visiting booths in the Expo. Review the challenge descriptions, as you can also earn points for performing any of the following actions within the booths:

  • Visit all or specific booths

  • Watch a video in the booth

  • Send a chat message in the booth

  • Click links in the booth

  • Download files in the booth

  • Click the Request a Meeting button

To participate in this challenge, click the Expo button at the bottom, select the Exhibitor, and do the actions indicated in the challenge.

9. Have Exhibitors Scan Your QR Code

At an in-person event, you can earn points by presenting your QR code from the attendee app to exhibitors for scanning.
