These days’ games play a major role in people’s lives. In today’s world, an astonishing 2.5 billion people play digital games – either on their console, computer, or phones, according to a recently conducted research. That is approximately a third of the whole world playing games. And this staggering number only goes up when you take into account different types of games –sports, board games, and newspaper crosswords.
We play games because they bring us joy. They trigger different aspects of our mind that relish completion, collection, or competition.

How Gamification Has Taken Over Corporate Events
Now, more than ever, people are openly discussing blurring the lines between pleasure and business – leisure travel being a prominent example. What Gamification does is that it integrates certain factors of fun into corporate events. This in turn elicits an emotional response and triggers engagement among your attendees/delegates.
Gamification, if appropriately implemented, possesses the power to transform your corporate event in the below-mentioned ways:
- Increases Self-Confidence of the Delegates
Makes all the delegates feel confident about themselves via straightforward reward and recognition strategies inside the event game.
- Activating A Sense Of Common Purpose
Assists the delegates in making memories and forming long-lasting relationships. This is achieved by motivating them to play with each other and activating a sense of common purpose.
- Emphasize on the Event’s Narrative
Games of the modern age are about storytelling more or less. By rewarding actions with progress through a powerful story, you could build a robust emotional relation with your delegates.
In addition to gamification being more included in corporate events, so is augmented reality.
