Pleasanton, CA—June 23, 2015—6Connex, Inc., the leader in virtual destination solutions, today released version 7.9 of the Virtual Destination platform. A key component of the release is increased power and flexibility in the Leaderboard module, providing virtual event producers new options for gamification within their programs.
The 6Connex Leaderboard uses gamification – game thinking and mechanics – to drive higher attendee engagement. A simple yet comprehensive dashboard lets event producers configure each “game” by assigning point values to the content, locations and activities they deem most valuable for their live or on-demand program.
While points can be assigned for many different activities, like content views, booth visits, and chat conversations, the real power comes in the ability to define a unique point value for every single item in the entire virtual experience, giving event producers unprecedented control and flexibility.
The Leaderboard module also includes a dynamic view of the top point earners and a customizable tab for displaying rewards and prizes. Finally, the module allows for multiple time-bound games, enabling new opportunities for engagement throughout the life of a virtual event program.
“The use cases for Leaderboard are almost endless,” said Lisa Farrell, CMO. “I’m very excited to work with our customers to help them leverage this powerful tool for exciting and interactive virtual events.”
