It always takes an admirable amount of hard work by event organizers like you to make an event successful. That’s why we tried to make event planning a fun process with the organizer proficiency gamification among all Whova customers. By making use of different features on the Whova platform, you could earn points and level up. Since we’re based in San Diego, we were using different fishes to commemorate your rise through the ranks.
However, such a gamification system, while effective, lacked the flexibility and granularity of recognizing your progress in specific areas. Plus, some customers told us that they don’t like to be called a Blue Whale 🙂
With all these in mind, we’re redesigning our organizer dashboard and introducing the Organizer Badges to make our organizer gamification more fun and inclusive! We are now also rewarding badges to organizers who shine on one of the five different aspects of event planning, such as “Organizer Hero” for improving team efficiency, “Communicating Wizard” for timely communication, “Creative Unicorn” for maximizing attendee engagement, and more. Share your accomplishments with your colleagues and friends!
Make your event more successful as you earn points and badges
By using features in specific areas, you can earn points and progress. Once you’ve achieved a certain amount of points, you’re able to earn the respective badge! To be more inclusive in recognizing the different strengths of an event organizer, we designed five different types of badges, each emphasizing on a unique specialty. Now, let’s explore our new Organizer Badges and how you can earn them!
