Meeting Professionals International (MPI) will use Poken’s event technology tools throughout its upcoming MPI DFW (Dallas/Ft. Worth) Trade Show Tech Summit, to provide a new ‘gamified’ event experience.

Through the use of a customised app, gamification module and interactive devices, participants will be incentivised to achieve specific event-related goals. 

Ramon Zurbuchen, general manager of Poken in the US, said: “As one of MPI’s largest chapters, MPI DFW prides itself on bringing new experiences to the meetings and event landscape through continuous innovation and vision. We are certainly very excited to have been chosen by MPI to contribute to its commitment to innovation.” 

On arrival participants will receive a smart badge and a Poken interactive USB stick, which they will use to network with other participants. Tailored objectives for participants will include digitally connecting with a specific number of people, engaging with a certain number of exhibitors or checking into a number of sessions.   

The MPI DFW Trade Show Tech Summit will be held at the Irving Convention Center in Texas on March 24.
