We had over 50 attendees sign up for the Scavenger Hunt at the Tri-Chamber Event at the Sarasota-Bradenton International Convention Center on Wednesday–thank you to everyone who participated! We had a blast putting everything together for the event and it was a lot of fun watching everyone climb under tables and around the perimeters of the Convention Center to find those elusive tags.
Throughout the night participating booth vendors from the Manatee and Venice Chambers of Commerce told us their placards were definitely driving traffic to their booths. Chris Simonis-Whittaker from Anna Maria Oyster Bar said, “Those who participated had a great time and they were really happy our sign was worth a 1000 points!”
After seeing how much fun participants were having, Brynne Anne Besio from the South Florida Museum asked if we could help them do a similar Scavenger Hunt at their annual Vinology Event. “When we saw all the fun attendees were having at the Tri-Chamber Event we realized the potential to launch a similar scavenger hunt during our Vinology event on February 4th,” said Besio. She continued, “This year we hope Vinology guests will enjoy wine tasting stations complete with QR tags. We look forward to experimenting with this technology as we continue to attract a younger audience to the Museum.”
After the Scavenger Hunt ended two “seasoned” ladies approached our booth to ask us if they could still scan the tags even though the event was over, because they were having so much fun. It just goes to show, technology can be fun… even if you aren’t a young whippersnapper!
