Eventzee Exposure: Lone Star Bash

Eventzee Exposure: Lone Star Bash

“Howdy, Y’all!”

The 3rd annual MHQ Bash successfully two-stepped all over the Dallas Metroplex this weekend! We had Munzee and Eventzee players from all over the world join us for a weekend of scavenger hunts and Texas stereotypes. Needless to say it was a blast and we can’t wait to have everyone back again next year!

Here’s a run down of the four Eventzee hunts we ran for the weekend:

venturingfest-logo-final-1Host: Boy Scouts of America

Event: National Venturing Event – VenturingFest

Event Breakdown and Testimonial:

The Boy Scouts of America’s Venturing program used Eventzee at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia for our first ever National Venturing Event-Venturing Fest.

We wanted a way for our participants to be able to explore the Summit and interact with other participants and Summit staff members. A scavenger hunt was a great way for our participants to get out and explore the site as they looked for clues. We thought an electronic scavenger hunt would better meet the needs of our population, since most of our participants have smartphones and they are easy to carry around and would not get lost like a piece of paper. Our event was 6 days and our scavenger hunt lasted 5 days so we could announce the winner on the last night during our closing show.

Our participants LOVED the Eventzee Scavenger Hunt. We even had adult leaders join the fun and participate, too. This was our most popular event, with over 300 participants actively playing along. Throughout the week, countless youth and adults commented to our Venturing Fest staff about how much they loved the scavenger hunt and how much fun they were having. They equally liked the ability to explore the Summit and get to meet new people along the way, since some of our clues required participants to meet other participants and Summit staff members.

The app benefited our event in so many ways. First, it encouraged our participants to get out and explore the Summit. Many of them had never been there before, so this was a great way for them to see the different program areas. Secondly, this event encouraged interaction between our participants because they were working on clues together. This also gave our participants something to do in the evening when our program areas were closed, but, most of our participants were working on their scavenger hunt during all waking hours of the event. The scavenger hunt added another level of fun and interaction to our event, which was loved by all of our participants!

Event: SomethingInked Promo Seminar

Event Breakdown and Testimonial:

SomethingInked hosted their 5th Annual Promotional Products Seminar in Las Vegas and incorporated an Eventzee Scavenger Hunt for the first time this year. Centering around a conferencewide Summer Camp theme, the scavenger hunt encouraged players to interact with “bunkmates” as well as vendors and sponsors.

“Our attendees had a blast! It encouraged everyone to go to each booth and mingle more than they would have without the scavenger hunt. And, since it was heavily photo based, we have come away with a lot of great images of products and customers using products that we can use for marketing pieces throughout the year.

We also used it as a tool to find the most popular products from the trade show and to get people engaged with our social media platforms. Overall it was a really fun addition to the event and if we don’t do it again next year I’m sure we will have some complaints!

-Amanda Wallace, Website and Graphic Designer- SomethingInked

Eventzee Update Version 1.6

Eventzee Update Version 1.6

We’re proud to announce the Eventzee version 1.6 update for Android and iOS devices is now available. We’ve introduced a new photo clue feature and fixed a few bugs. Download the update today!

Features Include:

  • LIBRARY UPLOAD OPTION:
    Eventzee 1.6 features a new photo library upload option. You can now use photos you have taken in the past and upload them for certain photo scavenger hunt clues. This feature can be toggled on and off for each clue individually and is perfect for uploading screenshots of social media posts, throwback photos, etc.
  • LIMITLESS CLUE LENGTH (iOS):
    Previously iOS devices limited clues to a few lines of text, but now clue descriptions can be as long as you like.
  • PUSH NOTIFICATIONS FIX (Android Users):
    It was brought to our attention that Android devices were not receiving push notifications, so this issue has been resolved in the latest update.

The new Library Upload option is mostly for private clients, but our weekend photo scavenger hunt will see clues from time to time use the option. For example our #ThrowbackThursday clues will now be upload available. So instead of taking a photo of a computer screen, you can upload the photo straight from the app. It is still important for the integrity of the game though that photos are taken in real time, so this upload option will not be available for all clues.

Checkout the video below to see how it works:
