ESCAPE the Conference
Illinois Computing Educators and iSchool Initiative have teamed up this year to bring you ESCAPE the Conference at #ICE19.
- a large portion of attendees were directly sent to interact with your booth?
- their experience upon arrival was self directed and challenged themselves to learn how to utilize your solution instead of you telling them about it?
- attendees saw first hand how your solutions solve real problems they currently face and they made a deeper connection with your solution?
ESCAPE the Conference increases attendee participation by gamifying the Exhibit Hall with an experience that gets attendees exploring the trade floor and engaging in meaningful discussions with exhibitors. ESCAPE uses core components of Escape Rooms, educational strategies, and technology to create immersive learning experiences to engage potential customers at conferences. Attendees will compete in teams to see who can be the first to escape. Their mission will lead them through the trade floor to interact with different exhibitor booths throughout the experience. Check out this video to see how an ESCAPE experience works.
