Expo Passport: Engage, Connect, and Win!
Use ScanHunt to set up your Expo Passport Game – a digital, interactive scavenger hunt to encourage attendees to explore the conference, visit exhibitor booths, and engage in meaningful interactions with industry professionals. Instead of rubber stamps, participants collect points by scanning QR codes at various checkpoints throughout the event venue.
Why implement an Expo Passport Game?
Boost Attendee Engagement
By gamifying the conference experience, the Expo Passport Game motivates attendees to actively participate in the event. The thrill of collecting points and the prospect of winning exciting rewards keep them engaged throughout the conference.
Encourages attendees to visit various exhibitor booths and foster organic conversations or networking opportunities. Exhibitors benefit from increased foot traffic and the chance to showcase their products and services to a wider audience.
As attendees explore the event space in search of QR codes, they will be exposed to a diverse range of topics and innovative ideas presented by exhibitors. This can lead to serendipitous discoveries and inspire attendees to expand their horizons.
Improve Event Metrics
The Expo Passport Game allows you to measure attendee participation, which can help you better understand the effectiveness of your event and identify areas for improvement.
Create Lasting Memories
By offering a unique and enjoyable experience, the Expo Passport Game leaves a lasting impression on attendees, making them more likely to attend future events.
Generate Sponsor Revenue
Event gamification provides an excellent opportunity to attract and secure sponsors for the checkpoints and prizes, thereby increasing their brand visibility and reaching a highly targeted audience.
“As a small non-profit with limited funds, we appreciate being able to use this scavenger hunt without a full year commitment to an app.”

Frequently Asked Questions about the ScanHunt Gamification app
How does the ScanHunt scavenger hunt app work?
The Scavenger hunt app by ATIV is a mobile application that allows event organizers to create and manage scavenger hunts for conference attendees. A user-friendly interface guides meeting planners through the steps of creating activities. Organizers then distribute the activity QR codes throughout the event venue that participants can scan with the ScanHunt app on their smartphones to collect the points.
How can I customize the scavenger hunt app for my event?
Event organizers have access to the ScanHunt gamification admin panel to customize their scavenger hunt app. ScanHunt provides a range of customization options, including the ability to create custom QR code activities and set up a points system that aligns with the event’s objectives. Additional customizations with further branding to seamlessly integrate into the event’s overall aesthetic is available via EventPilot Pro.
What are the benefits of using a scavenger hunt / expo passport?
Gamification such as scavenger hunts or expo passport games with ScanHunt can improve attendee engagement and interaction with exhibitors or sponsors, increase retention and attendance by encouraging participants to visit more sessions and booths, and provide valuable data for event organizers to make informed decisions about future events.
How can I limit the availability of a QR game activity?
The ScanHunt admin user interface allows event organizers to toggle the game On and Off as needed to control participation and the option to scan QR codes. In addition, meeting planners can optionally set a start date and time as well as an end date and time for each individual activity. This prevents participants from cheating by scanning codes outside of the designated time frame.
Can attendees cheat by scanning the same activity QR code multiple times?
The ScanHunt scavenger hunt app automatically limits scanning an activity QR code to one time only. Once a QR code has been scanned by a participant, it is marked as “completed” and cannot be scanned again by the same participant. This helps ensure that participants cannot cheat by scanning the same QR code multiple times and artificially inflating their score.
Is the scavenger hunt app compatible with different devices and operating systems?
The ScanHunt app is available for download on both iOS and Android devices. The event gamification app is designed to be responsive and adaptive, meaning that it can adjust its layout and features depending on the specific device and screen size being used. Participants’ scores are automatically synchronized across different devices in real-time within the ScanHunt scavenger hunt app.
How do attendees access and download the scavenger hunt app?
Attendees can easily download the scavenger hunt app by ATIV by searching for “ScanHunt” in the App Store or Google Play on their iOS or Android device. Once the app is downloaded, attendees enter a code to access the scavenger hunt for a specific event. Alternatively, event organizers can provide attendees with a direct download link or a QR code to take them directly to the app download page.
How can we integrate the scavenger hunt app with our event’s registration system?
A custom version of the ScanHunt app can be developed that integrates with your registration system like Maritz or Cvent in order to limit participant access. In this case, only registered attendees are able to log into the scavenger hunt app and participate in the game. Contact ATIV Software directly for a quote to develop a fully customized event gamification experience.
How can we track and monitor the progress of the scavenger hunt?
The ScanHunt scavenger hunt app includes a built-in analytics and reporting feature that allows event organizers to track participant progress, monitor engagement, and collect valuable data on participant behavior and preferences. The analytics provide real-time updates on the number of QR codes scanned and points earned by each participant.
What kind of leaderboard or ranking system does ScanHunt offer?
The ScanHunt leaderboard is included in the native app and available via a web page as a public leaderboard. It displays the top-performing participants in real-time based on the number of points earned and incentivizes participants to engage and compete with each other for the top spots. Each participant can view their own progress and relative ranking, track their points and review achievements.
How can we incentivize attendees to participate in the scavenger hunt app?
Offer rewards or prizes to participants who earn the most points based on the ScanHunt leaderboard or randomly select winners from the pool of participants. This could include anything from gift cards and free registration for next year’s event, to exclusive access to VIP events or experiences. Tailor incentives to your specific audience’s motivations and interests.
What types of support are available for the scavenger hunt app?
A ScanHunt app subscription includes ticketed email support and a knowledge base with a variety of support articles. Upgrading to a customized version of the ScanHunt app may offer additional options such as a live virtual priority support channel during your event where your onsite team can submit questions directly to an expert at ATIV.
