Event Tech of the Week: @Loquiz
Today, we’re talking about: LOQUIZ
Company/Tool Name: LOQUIZ
What is the “problem” that your tool seeks to solve?
Loquiz is a mobile game platform that enables the creation of indoor and outdoor adventure games, photo and scavenger hunts. Games are built online and played on smart devices.
It helps event professionals, team building trainers and outdoor adventure companies to create engaging games for their clients with less workload.
The core purpose is to get people to interact with each other and their surroundings. Tech is a tool to make engagement with events more fun through the use of gamification.
Better games, less work!
What is the best audience for this tool? Corporate events? Social? Other? Large? Small?
Corporate events and city scavenger hunts from small groups to events with hundreds of participants. It is best for outdoor team games but also can be run indoors as a quiz or a clue-game.
What does your tool help event planners do better?
The main benefits are flexibility and ease of editing and running games.
Combining existing questions with a few client or event-specific ones offers an option to create and conduct games within minutes. No lengthy process using old methods (paper, printing out questions, pen, gps, maps, setting up the track physically on landscape or dividing printed out material to audience for the game).
When conducting the game, Loquiz allows event planners to get an overview during the game of teams’ progress on the map and in the end to see final game results – instantly – to announce the winning team.
Loquiz helps to bring awesome game ideas into life with less hassle.
How is your tool different from/better than the competition?
It is easy to change already existing questions and games and combine these for new events.
You can build different game types with different logic- from a simple quiz and outdoor freeflow movement game to brainwork-inducing strategy games and scavenger hunts.
It’s easy to engage outside contributors. Clients can collaborate and insert questions for an upcoming event without seeing other content.
The robust app is easy to use even with temporary lack of internet connectivity (e.g. in the woods); it is easy to continue the game on another device if needed.
No monthly fee and creating games and testing them fully is free. Pay only when a real event is going to be held.
What is the single coolest feature of your product?
Possibility to combine and change existing content you have created (questions and games-)within a few minutes and use them for any event or venue.
