PCOA steps up Gamification for 10th Annual Conference & Exhibition
A little friendly competition was all PCOA needed to drive engagement to new heights at their 10th Annual Conference and Exhibition. Following the success of their 2016 Event App, PCOA worked with Entegy Labs to enhance the delegate competition and networking while boosting traffic to exhibitor booths.
The 10th PCO Association Conference was the biggest yet, attracting over 440 attendees and selling out their 60 exhibitor booths by June 2017.
Held in the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition centre from 26 – 28 November 2017, this year’s theme of MEETING Beyond Tomorrow provided the perfect backdrop for an event that focused on future opportunities and examined industry growth and development.
PCOA had sub-themes of Innovation and Engagement, covering topics ranging from the latest technology and what impact it has on conferences to new ways to engage and influence audiences, both digitally and onsite.
There were plenty of opportunities for attendees to network at the two social functions and meal breaks were taken in the exhibition hall.
