Win The Game of Phones: Now Your Meeting Attendees Can Play Trivia On Their Smart Phones!

Audience Response App now includes Trivia game for events and meetings

Now that our SocialPoint Challenge Bar Trivia Game is available in our Audience Response App, you can win the battle for attendee’s attention, by giving them a fun experience on their smart phones!

How does adding Trivia to the Audience Response App work?

Now you can add trivia to your event flow and push the game to attendees’ phones in the same way that you push polls, word clouds, discussion topics and much more. Attendees play our “three-strikes” game answering as many questions correctly as they can.

Their scores will appear on the leaderboard that is shown on the big screen in the room or in hallways around the venue. The major visibility of the leaderboard drives huge competitiveness – and attendee participation.

And because our Trivia game is built into our Audience Response App, it works on smart phones and iPads, on Android or Apple IOS. It’s a solution for the “Bring Your Own Device” era.  So now there’s no need to rent and set up rows of iPads to give your attendees the fun and learning of trivia.

How does adding Trivia makes your meeting or event even better?

Gamification increases engagement learning.  For example, according to HR Dive, “84% of trainers surveyed agreed that gamification in training helps improve knowledge retention and employee performance.”

Our trivia game is addictively fun – people who complete the game usually hit the “Play Again” button to try and increase their score. When attendees play our trivia, they are learning about whatever you want them to learn about, because you write the questions.  So, while they are having loads of fun, you are getting tons of engagement and learning.  And it’s measurable.

That’s because we can group the questions into learning topics, so you can measure post-event which topics attendees know well, and which topics require additional training.  You can even view how individual attendees replied and scored on the trivia game, all in the same platform as their other Audience Response App interactions.

What kind of results are our clients getting with trivia?

Already, our clients have hosted five events with between 300 – 500 attendees that used trivia within our Audience Response App in their events. Each event is averaging 2,000 game plays and 14,000 questions answered by attendees.  The attendee engagement is amazing! In addition, we have used trivia in hybrid events – where we had over 1,000 people playing and over 40,000 questions answered. So – we are pretty confident in trivia’s ability to scale to large audiences!

It’s been a common complaint for meeting planners that they have to fight with smart phones for attendees’ attention. Now, with our Trivia game built into your event’s Audience Response App, you’ll not only win that fight, you’ll win the Game of Phones!

If you’d like to see how you can create more engaging and interactive content using the wide variety of choices within our SocialPoint Audience Engagement System, feel free to contact us with questions or to discuss your event with one of SocialPoint’s Digital Strategists. We’ll help you generate greater attendee engagement at your events.
