Length of Event in CrowdCompass

    We're thinking about doing several workshops over multiple months, and would like registrants to have the same app access for all the workshops.

    What is the longest event you've ever done in Crowd Compass?

    Any ideas about how to keep participants engaged with the app in between sessions?

    Thank You!

    Our longest event using Crowd Compass has been 4 days. We've had great success using Gameification. Also, we utilize the push notification to remind people when/where certain sessions are and to link them to different sponsorship pages. We're careful though not to push too much and have them unsubscribe.

    The longest event we have used the app for has been 6 days. We found the live polling feature and push notifications to be extremely effective. The attendees seemed to really enjoy the wall feed where they could post pictures of them at the event. This seemed to keep them engaged.  We use Crowd Compass for all of our events, but they are different attendees and no need to keep them active in between events. Hope this helps!

    Hi Emily!

    I was wanting to do a similar thing for our members but without an example of how it would work, was not able to sell the idea to my team.

    I was thinking of using sponsors/exhibitors in between events to keep people engaged. Our organization offers nano sessions (15 minutes) which they can get .25 of a credit for so my thought was to allow exhibitors to do mini presentations of their products once or twice a week as part of a sponsorship package.

    Another idea I had was to have a weekly happy hour (or a few for multiple sub groups within our membership) that people could call into. Maybe those members with most engagement on the app for the week could win gift cards to local places to pick up to-go drinks for happy hours?

    I'd love to hear what you come up with!

    Good luck!

    The longest we have run CrowdCompass has been for four days and with approximately 1600 attendees.  We have used polling and games, and it was very easy to build the sessions into the app for our marketing team.

    We used Crowd Compass for our Virtual Conference that ran over 6 days.  We did giveaways to encourage app adoption.  We used push notifications to remind attendees about the sessions and do call to actions.  We did live polling and used gamification as well.
