Challenge Bar Trivia Game for Trade Show Booths

The Challenge Bar trivia game is a digital, self-service game that pulls trade show attendees into an exhibitor’s booth to play because it is great looking, fun, and offers the chance to win a prize and get on the leaderboard. Which drives higher lead counts for exhibitors!

Your Brand.
Your Content.

The game has colorful, attractive screens that are easily customizable to include your logo, graphics and match your colors.

Create a question bank that highlights your products, benefits and company. Some clients even highlight trends in their industry. Each question helps a visitor learn something new about your company.

Game configurations can be saved and reused for other shows.

Different Games for Different Experiences.

Three Strikes

Attendees play until they get three questions wrong. The further that they go, the more points each question is worth. Exhibitors love this game, because questions are selected and sorted randomly.

On the Clock!

You are on the clock! So, answer as many questions as possible until time runs out. For bonus play, you can double the points as players keep getting answers correct. Great for quick activations without a leaderboard.

Game Show

Each player answers the same questions at the same time. A host chooses the questions, the order and how long they appear on the iPad. You can change the point value for each question to add more suspense.

Countdown Quiz

Create a sense of urgency, by putting 12 seconds on the clock. Attendees need to answer each question before time expires! The faster you answer, the more points you earn.

Drive Booth Traffic

People love to see their name in lights. The leaderboard creates a large visual beacon that pulls visitors into your trade show booth from the aisles.

Once a visitor sees their name on the leaderboard, they often take pictures to show their friends. You can expect some of them to return to make sure they still occupy a top spot.

Capture More Leads

Let the attendees do the data entry for you by filling out custom data capture forms. The game is self-service and never needs a break. It will continue to capture leads even when your booth staff are busy and tired.

Customize our data capture forms and surveys to get the data that will help your business the most. Ask visitors to sign up for the newsletter, download a document and sign up for a meeting with your sales reps.

And with the new Lead Manager App (a free Companion App to our Challenge Bar Trivia game), your booth staffers can ask and record detailed lead info – and even start leads that did not play a game.

Educate Booth Visitors

Trivia games are an excellent way to educate attendees without needing to rely on your booth staff, signage or printed materials. Based on our experience, attendees will answer between 3,000 and 5,000 questions in a typical trivia game. Some clients will get between 14,000 and 20,000 questions answered.

Often booth visitors discuss the question content with people around them, when they don’t know the answer.

The 4 Kinds Of Digital Screens You Get With Our Interactive Trade Show Games

What do you get when you choose a SocialPoint interactive trade show game?  More than fits on a single screen!

There are actually 4 kinds of digital screens that come with each of our trade show games.  The 4 kinds of screens not only come in different sizes, but also help you achieve different key trade show goals: Attract attendees, engage and capture leads, and measure your results.

1st Interactive trade show game screen: Big monitors that attract attendees

The big flat screen TV monitors main goal is to attract attendees into your booth. They present intriguing, game-generated content that tells passing attendees that something cool is happening here, and they should check it out. Our games output digital content that display on a large screen of your choice.

These large screens are attendee-facing and therefore are customizable to your brand assets (logo, type fonts, colors, product images, and backgrounds).  Let’s take a look.

With our Challenge Bar Trivia game, the big screen is a constantly-updated leaderboard showing the top 5, 10, or even 20 scoring game players, often with a photo of the big prize, company brand, or the game theme.

To attract even more attention, some exhibitors make this big screen even bigger.  For example, iBoss combines 4 flat screens into one larger digital display:

And Cisco Live made an epic leader board to stand out even more and be an even bigger attraction:

With our Virtual Prize Wheel, the big screen can be the prize wheel itself, listing the variety of prizes attendees can win.  This prize wheel also spins when an attendee plays, creating more visual intrigue for passers-by.

2nd Interactive trade show game screen: iPads or tablet computers that engage & capture

The second kind of screen included with our interactive trade show games is the iPads or tablet computers that game players play on.  These touchscreen tablets engage your booth visitors and capture their lead data.  These screens can also be customized to match your visual brand elements.  Game players can spend from one to many minutes, especially if they return to play trivia repeatedly to get a higher score.  We’ve seen clients use as few as one to as many as 9 of these in one booth at a time.

3rd Interactive trade show game screen: Personal computers to administer and measure

This third kind of screen is not seen by the game players, but it available to you as the game host. It’s the admin screens that you can use to make easy changes to your game set up and to measure your results.  For example, for admin use, you can make on-the-fly changes to trivia questions that players say are too confusing, or change the proportion of times you want a certain Virtual Prize Wheel prize to be awarded.

For downloading leads, measuring and reporting results, you can see in graphic and chart form how well your game performed.  See even more about our included game analytics here.

Lead reporting from interactive trade show games

You don’t even have to be at the show to use these kinds of admin screens – you can login to our web-based platform from your office to see how well the show is going.  And you can download leads at any point during the show, or once the show is over, without having to be in your physical booth.

4th Interactive trade show game screen: Smartphones for attendee engagement & booth staffing

With the addition of our new Attendee Participation Game, now even the smallest screens can become powerful tools for engaging trade show (and event) attendees.  Attendees can use their smartphones to play individual games, and track their overall progress through a series of potential challenges and prize opportunities.

smart phone app trade show and event games and activities

The smartphone screen is also where booth staffers can access our Lead Manager App, which is a free companion app to our trade show games.  Booth staffers can see all the info captured about your booth’s game players.  They can also add more info to further detail and qualify your trade show leads.  This is a great resource at shows where there is no badge scanner, or when you want to avoid paying for one.
