Event Camp Twin Cities 2011 (ECTC11) is once again experimenting with new formats and methods for creating engaging and effective meetings. In an effort to include a gaming element to the meeting, teams made up of both live and virtual participants are competing in a number of challenges throughout the two day event in what is being called “The Great Event Camp Challenge”. Teams play the game in three different ways: Team Challenges, Badges and Case Study.
Team Challenges: throughout the 2 day event, teams compete in four different challenges. These challenges are designed to get the team to build greater understanding among team members, contemplate what meetings will look like in the year 2020, compete in a fun trivia challenge, and race through the internet in a virtual treasure hunt. Teams earn points for how well they do in each challenge.
Badges: teams have the ability to earn badges for completing specific activities such as creating a team Linked In page or answering specific questions on one of the presentation topics. Teams earn points for each badge they earn.
Case Study: at the beginning of the event, teams were introduced through a video to three companies who are each looking for a way to improve their meeting and make it more engaging. Teams are challenged to come up with a solution for one of the companies and present it back to them in a YouTube video. Teams earn points for how many likes they get on their video.
In fact, this blog post is part of one of the challenges – as it one of the landing stops on the virtual treasure hunt. So for teams looking for that next clue, here’s your riddle:
