Engage Guests with Challenges and NFTs at your Next Event

Whether pre, during, or post-event, the Award Pool widget can benefit your event, engage and excite your guests with NFT rewards.

Not sure how NFTs fit into your event planning? NFTs, or Non-fungible Tokens, are unique items with digital receipts stored on a blockchain. You can use them to share or sell unique digital assets specific to your event, such as art, tickets, passes, and more. So whether you’re holding a conference, hosting a speaker, or having a charity fundraising event, NFTs can add excitement and interest to your event.

Creating an Award Pool challenge will help you engage and excite people attending your event. For each of the questions they answer in a challenge, they receive points they can redeem for NFT rewards. Think exclusive event art, special access passes, or discount codes for merchandise. These can all be sold within the Award Pool widget as well. Once NFTs in your challenge are redeemed, they can be traded and sold between users with digital wallets. The digital art of your NFTs can be shared and viewed by many.

If you want your event guests to be well prepared and ready to work or play, you can send out a challenge link ahead of the event to get them ready. For example, you could create a challenge to get them to know more about the event hosts and mission or introduce keynote speakers. Points earned in the pre-event challenge could unlock special event codes that allow them access to exclusive workshops, meet and greets, and more.

The extra interaction before your event has the potential to excite your guests and get them even more engaged before your starting date even arrives. If you create NFTs that your guests want to share on their social channels, you can also generate hype between attendees. You could even increase attendance, as others see some perks of attending your event and completing challenges.

Once the event is underway, create challenges to help your attendees get the most out of your event. Challenges can include quizzes with true/false, multiple-choice and long answer responses. They can help you engage your attendees or even get feedback about their preferences during your event. Social media engagement questions can get your attendees to share photos and comments about your event. Just ask them to include a hashtag or tag when they post to increase awareness for your event and brand.

To get your guests moving around and seeing more of the booths and vendors at your event and its location, create a scavenger hunt challenge for them! You can ask attendees to share photos at various locations or answer questions they can only find the answers to by visiting an area or talking to event vendors or hosts.

Whether pre, during, or post-event, the Award Pool widget can benefit your event, engage and excite your guests with NFT rewards, and keep them talking and sharing long after your event is over.
