Although the pandemic put in-person conferences at a standstill, virtual conference platforms are stepping in to fill the void and rapidly improving with the user experience in mind. One of these platforms is Socio, which we will be using to host T2 Connect 2021.
One of the hottest trends in the development of conference technology in the past few years is gamification. Gamification is the application of game mechanics in real-life situations. It hands the feeling of control to you so that you can direct your own experiences, rather than just being a passive viewer.
But how will Socio and gamification provide a more engaging experience at Connect 2021? You can earn points and badges, as well as interact with fellow Connect attendees in Socio to build relationships, like you would at an in-person conference. You can also visit our sponsor tables to earn points and customize your schedule to take charge of your own Connect experience.
Below are some features of the Socio app that will elevate your user experience and deliver the most engaging experience possible for you.
The Web App
The Web App is the web-based version of the Socio app. The Web App is designed to function on a web browser across any device. The use of Google Chrome is recommended for the best experience. Chat and polling are great features to introduce yourself and engage in the session. Q&A allows you to ask questions and participate in the live stream.
Consider building your profile to include a photo of yourself to help others put a face to your name and for you to show off on the leaderboard. Including information such as your title and company is an effective way for attendees to learn more about each other.
The Wall is a fun way to network and interact with others within the Socio platform. You can react with likes or comments on others’ posts and create your own photos to post.
The Game feature allows you to have fun and compete in challenges in the online platform. Earn points by visiting a booth, attending sessions, or networking to win prizes and rise on top of the leaderboard.
We hope that you are as excited as we are about the virtual Connect experience! We believe that new features like The Wall and Leaderboards will bridge the digital gap to bring a unique and unforgettable experience. While we would have loved to see you in person for Connect 2021, we are just as excited and can’t wait to get together virtually and see you on the Socio Platform.
