Not just another audience interaction tool.

Attract more participants

Using word-of-mouth marketing is a very powerful way of attracting more participants to your Hackathon! Once participants share their badges, their friends and colleagues will see it and immediately be aware of your event. These people are likely to share similar interests and therefore, more likely to become your participants!

Participants recognition tool

Use the Virtual Badges to individually recognize the effort of all hackathon participants. After all, not only the winners gave their blood, sweat, and tears for the event. When these participants receive recognition for their deeds, they become more willing to take part in your future hackathons!

Brand strengthening

Virtual Badges can be used to expand your digital marketing reach! Give your participants a token that they will proudly share in their favorite social media channels. This user-generated content strategy boosts your event awareness directly within audiences that are more likely to be interested in becoming participants.
