Jan 13, 2022 | Hunt Tips
As we look to plan our 2022 events, there’s no doubt that the structure of events has changed – no matter what industry you’re in. Living in a COVID world has shaped the way we think about the events we host, what kind of activities we include, and how our attendees will be receptive to the event as a whole. Be prepared for any situation by hosting a hybrid event using Eventzee!
We’re always looking for ways to stay ahead of the game when it comes to helping our clients create one-of-a-kind event experiences, no matter the circumstances. Below are some ideas to consider for your next hybrid event!
Give Attendees the Option to Stay Home
Traveling can be difficult during the pandemic, especially when it comes to gatherings of large groups of people. Creating a hybrid event structure that’s easy to use for all participants is the perfect way to make sure you can proceed with your event as scheduled, even though it might not be how you originally planned it.
An Eventzee scavenger hunt is a great tool for creating an environment that is easy for at-home participants. They can simply download the Eventzee app and enter their specific event code, which allows them instant access.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bluegrass recently hosted a hybrid fundraising event with the Eventzee scavenger hunt app, where different sets of questions were offered to the at-home participants and the in-person attendees. By making it easy to have an option (virtual or in-person) on how to join, they were able to increase their overall participation.
Engage At-Home Participants
Simply hosting a webinar won’t suffice in 2022. People are inundated with virtual meetings throughout every work day, which could make participation in virtual events decrease significantly as people are sidetracked with emails, calls, and tasks.
Engage attendees of virtual events by utilizing a scavenger hunt app, where participants can have fun with trivia, chat with other participants, and work for points to earn prizes by performing a variety of tasks and challenges.
Save Money, Time, and Energy
Does the in-person portion of your event include a paper passport that attendees can get signed to win prizes? With the Eventzee scavenger hunt app, you can save time and money by skipping the print and utilizing a virtual option instead. Attendees can simply scan QR codes or submit trivia answers and pictures to display their engagement. Each QR code scanned earns the participant a digital “badge” which functions as a digital passport stamp
This past summer, Champaign, Illinois, used the Eventzee scavenger hunt app to increase their tourism in their downtown area. In the past, they utilized paper passports but found that of all the passports they handed out, only a small percentage were completed and returned. By introducing Eventzee, they were able to change up the structure of the event, offered a variety of challenges, and overall saw a huge increase in participation.
Easily Collect Marketing Materials on the Scavenger Hunt App
Eventzee has 7 different challenge types for scavenger hunt app events. One of our favorite challenge types is the image challenge, where event hosts can prompt participants to take specific photos, whether that be in specific locations throughout a given area, or completing specific actions! With event attendees permissions, these photos make great marketing pieces for company culture, social media or future events!

Sep 1, 2021 | Eventzee Exposure, Hunt Tips
Looking to spice up your next fundraiser event? Make it virtual! Whether you’re looking for a way to engage people who might be contributing from home, or you’re just looking for a way to make your annual event a little different this year, the Eventzee fundraiser scavenger hunt app is the perfect solution for fundraising.
Check out our team’s tips below for why we think Eventzee is the best solution for your upcoming event!
Raise Funds Through Hunt Ticket Sales
The point of any fundraiser is to ultimately work towards supporting a cause. With a fundraising scavenger hunt app, organizations can allow people to play for free and donate what they like, or you can request player entrance (ticket) fees.
Some organizations choose to allow players to participate in teams or individually, and have the entrance fee vary accordingly. Other Eventzee clients have added incentives for teams based on various fundraising thresholds including early access to challenges, bonus challenges and more!
Allow for Team Play!
With Eventzee’s unique team play option, organizations can choose to allow players to play individually or in teams of any size. All players can still contribute on their own phones to their team’s score.
One of the biggest challenges with virtual events is ensuring that all players are engaged. With the teams option, you can allow people to work together to complete a goal. Players can support one another in an effort to compete against other teams, or to win a prize at the end of the event.
In the height of the pandemic, and worried that they would have to cancel their fundraising event altogether, The Salvation Army of Buffalo created an amazing fundraiser using Eventzee’s fundraiser scavenger hunt app where teams of two were able to participate from the safety of their cars. These team members worked together as they traveled around Buffalo exploring arts, history, and more.
Make It Educational!
What cause or organization does the fundraiser support? Having donations towards a cause is wonderful, but what’s even better is educating people on benefits of the organization. Whether raising money for medical research, or gaining support for local youth organizations, fundraisers that educate players have a longer standing impact than those that just ask for monetary donations.
With Eventzee’s fundraiser scavenger hunt app, there are seven different task types to choose from when building the event. One of the most-loved task types is the quiz category. Test players’ knowledge of the cause they’re supporting by offering multiple choice questions. You can also ramp up the difficulty and use text challenges instead of quizzes where players must “write in” the correct answer. With quizzes and text challenges, players might end up learning something new about an organization they care about!
Allow People to Join the Fun From Anywhere using a Fundraiser Scavenger Hunt App!
Especially today, with many restrictions on gathering sizes and traveling, it’s important to allow players to have the option of joining in on the fun virtually. They may not be able to run around a campus and find specific hidden clues, but there are plenty of ways to keep them engaged and entertained, while supporting the cause, in their own homes and local communities!
Recently, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass held their first-ever hybrid fundraising event with Eventzee’s fundraiser scavenger hunt app. The event, which is typically in person, gave players a timeframe to complete the challenges. Some challenges were available to those who were attending the event in-person, while others were for those playing from afar. The event was a hit and the organization was able to raise almost $50,000 that will directly benefit the youth of Central Kentucky.
Keep People Engaged and Motivated With a Prize!
While all players should be ultimately participating in this fundraising scavenger hunt to support the cause, there’s no harm in kicking it up a notch and motivating the group to get competitive with the end goal of winning a prize.
Prizes can be as small as a item of the organization’s SWAG, or something even bigger. Better yet, offer the winner the ability to have a portion of the amount fundraised donated in their name!
Eventzee is the perfect way to throw a fun and amazing fundraising event, and allows people to really become ingrained in the company or organization they’re supporting. As the most customizable option on the market, Eventzee’s team is eager to work with you to make this your best event yet!

With the current pandemic, it’s more important than ever to be innovative when it comes to running and hosting virtual events. While this new way of life may seem daunting, Eventzee has your back and we’re ready to help you host your most successful event. The following 6 tips will help you along your admin adventure and make the most of your virtual event!
Check on Your Players Real-Time to See Their Performance
See real-time engagement from players during your virtual scavenger hunt by viewing the dashboard within Eventzee’s admin tool. Decide if players need guidance and encouragement, but don’t worry about finding each group or player in person to do so. You can even reach out to players to help- but more on that later!
Offer Prizes and Promotions
One of the best ways to motivate people during your event is to offer them a promotion or prize at the end of their participation! This encourages people to push forward and complete all of the challenges to the best of their ability.
Many downtown and tourist associations, like Eventzee clients Champaign Center Partnership of Champaign, Illinois, use virtual scavenger hunts to increase traffic in local shops and businesses. During these events, people are offered promotions and deals at these locations, and can receive prizes for visiting the most destinations during their visit.
Choose a Clear Winner and Avoid Ties
Leave the scoring up to us! While you’re running your event, you don’t need to worry about allocating points and breaking ties, unless you want to. Eventzee’s virtual scavenger hunt platform has built in techniques to make sure no players get the same score. For example, Quiz Challenges can be set up to award the most points to the person who answers the fastest.
Communicate Directly to the Players
Need to get in touch with your players? You don’t need to corral everyone in one room, or go around and talk to everyone individually. Eventzee allows you to communicate with players through announcements or you can send them a direct message through the chat feature.
Make Your Event Stand Out In All The Right Ways
Eventzee’s virtual scavenger hunt app offers the most challenge types compared to others on the market. Switch up your event by using various challenge types, and keep your players on their toes! CrimeCon, a true crime convention, utilized Eventzee’s virtual event tool at their event this past year to engage players in a different way. With the platform, they were able to engage their attendees, who were both virtual and in person, and test their knowledge of true crime! This app also allowed attendees to engage with virtual and in-person vendors and work towards solving mysteries to win prizes.
Choose the Best Virtual Scavenger Hunt Platform For Your Organization
There’s no shortage of platforms for running a virtual event, however, before you choose which one to utilize, make sure it’ll provide everything you need to run the perfect event.
With our team of experts on your side, you’ll be able to understand the tools and have flawless execution of your best event yet!

May 27, 2021 | Announcements, Hunt Tips, Hunt Types, Press Releases
We’re excited to announce we have officially launched a state of the art team event option for the Eventzee application! While in the past, event participants could potentially work as a team under a single Eventzee account, this worked better for in-person events. The extended functionality comes as a highly requested feature from clients, particularly those hosting team-building or ice breaker-style events.
“With virtual events, coordinating with team members in different locations and maybe even different time zones is already difficult,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag. “With the Eventzee Teams version, team members can be in different locations and still contribute to their overall team’s score.”
The main difference between Eventzee team events and regular events is that team events have extra Team Scoring options for event hosts to specify their requirements. Unlike some other scavenger hunt apps, each team member’s score can affect the overall team score in Eventzee team events, if the host chooses. Event hosts have the flexibility to require all team members to complete a challenge, just one team member, or any number in between. In addition, depending on the member requirement they chose, event hosts can specify whether they want only the top N or bottom N scores to count, or to have all the scores added together.
Utilizing Eventzee’s Team functions and white label program, Barnes Harley Davidson launched the exclusive Squad Wars: Coast To Coast app. This exciting, multiplayer, motorcycle riding experience has riders driving to landmarks and businesses throughout North America.
Event hosts also have the option to create teams and assign participants to them, or to leave it up to their participants to form their own teams. For the latter option, a minimum and maximum number of members can be specified so that teams must be within that range before they can start to work on the challenges. Regardless of which team-forming option event hosts choose, they always have the ability to create their own teams and move participants to different teams, if conflicts arise.
In events where participants are allowed to create their own teams, the team captains are given a Team Manager role which allows them full control over their members — they can invite, cancel invites, accept or reject join requests, promote to the Team Manager role, and remove. In addition, the Team area in the Social tab only displays messages from other team members, unlike regular events where the Chat is open to all participants. This private team chat allows team members to use the Eventzee app to plan, strategize, and coordinate their efforts.
If you’re interested in hosting an Eventzee scavenger hunt visit our website and contact our team to set up the best package for you. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 714-210-3850 x15. Eventzee is ideal for trade shows, conferences and orientations.

Nov 3, 2020 | Announcements, Hunt Tips, Hunt Types
What are “Party Packs”? Party Packs are premade scavenger hunts with 20+ Photo, Video, and Quiz challenges written around a central theme, allowing up to 25 players. These packs are perfect for birthday parties, family reunions, weddings, any gathering of friends and family – and we’ve done all the work for you.
When you purchase a Party Pack, you will have admin privileges which include: having the ability to approve and reject Photo and Video submissions from players, the ability to download submitted photos and videos for your own use, and more! They do NOT include the ability to edit the challenges (if you would like that ability, please Contact Us to set up a Custom Hunt). As we are offering this service of creating a private scavenger hunt with challenges already written for use in your event, the price for Party Packs is $49.99.
If you had purchased one of the Themed Huntz we sold in the past, this may sound familiar. As mentioned earlier, the main change is that instead of offering a single entry ticket into a scavenger hunt, which you would purchase as a player, we are now offering an entire premade hunt, which you would purchase as an event host. In addition, each of the Party Packs has DOUBLE the amount of challenges that the Themed Huntz had, bringing them to 20 challenges each, with the exception of the A, B, ZEEs! Party Pack, which still has 26 challenges. Some of the new challenges we added are Video and Quiz challenges, so you and your attendees can get a taste of these new challenge types, though the majority are still Photo challenges.
These hunts have been designed so you and your attendees can do them in your home, but as always we suggest getting creative! Some of these challenges will be items you’ll search for, while others you’ll need to craft yourself.
In order to purchase a Party Pack, simply visit our shop here: https://www.eventzeeapp.com/party-packs/. Once the purchase is complete, you will receive an e-mail with instructions like the one shown below.
This e-mail covers everything you need to know to finish your Party Pack event setup, so make sure to read it carefully! If you run into any issues, please feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com.
Lastly, here’s a rundown of the Packs! Again, for those of you who had seen the Themed Huntz, the descriptions remain mostly the same as before, but we have created an entirely new Super Spooky Season Pack as well!
Super Spooky Season

While some of these Packs may fit certain occasions better than others, you can purchase them at any time — after all, it’s your event! Encourage your players to be creative as you’ll have a better variety of photos and videos to download and use! If you’ve got any prizes to award, you can use the event leaderboard as the basis!
