Summer is right around the corner! For many places, this can mean it’s time to get ready for an influx of tourists who are ready to start exploring again after a long winter.

If you’re looking for a way to get these folks engaged on the next level, look no further than hosting an event through the Eventzee scavenger hunt app. Here are some ideas to get you started:

Season-long Activities

Towns with an active tourist population benefit from having a tool that allows for engagement on another level. For many towns, this is often a passport-style scavenger hunt that guides people through the town’s hottest locations, including historical landmarks, small businesses, restaurants, and more.

Unlike holiday or festival events, season-long scavenger hunts can take the pressure off of the winning aspect of a game and allow people to really dig into all that the town has to offer. A lot of Eventzee clients enjoy offering a prize to all participants who finish the event in a given time period, such as a small gift card that benefits the downtown shops and restaurants.

Festivals or Fairs

Festivals and fairs of all kinds can benefit from a tool like a scavenger hunt app, like Eventzee. Guests may be overwhelmed with all that’s offered within a certain time period. With Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app, you can highlight local vendors and their offerings, get rid of any printed materials, and include a map.

In addition to being a great resource for attendees, you can allow specific vendors to purchase advertising space within in app, leaderboard style, to generate additional revenue for the event.

Small Business Saturdays

Small Business Saturday doesn’t just have to be confined to one day in November. Small business owners work hard every day of the year, and they should be appreciated for that!

Using Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app and the QR code feature, visitors can be encouraged to engage with small business shops and restaurants throughout a whole downtown area. This past year, Downtown Center Business Improvement District of LA hosted an event over multiple days to encourage visitors to visit specific parts of the city. The free event was created to encourage people to engage with local businesses, and participants were entered to win a nice prize at the end of the event!

Historical Sites

Historical sites benefit from utilizing a scavenger hunt app like Eventzee because it makes it easy for people to learn and explore without needing the assistance of a tour guide. Especially with Covid restrictions, access to a pre-built educational event right from your smartphone can be key to making sure visitors have the best experience.
