Armed with Smartphones, iPads or Tablets as your tour guides, this is high tech tablet or smartphone scavenger hunt is a team building program with a conventional twist. You’ll work together to locate GPS hotspots, complete challenges (sometimes within the actual environment around you), answer questions and earn points.
GoTek uses gamification to engage participants, the “Process of using game thinking and game mechanics to solve problems and engage audiences”. Put simply, it means that you’ll get far better results from your group if you engage them within a game environment – perfect for an interactive scavenger hunt using tablets and smartphones.
Complete Experience: Multimedia + Physically Interactive
Your high tech game will include questions and challenges using every type of multimedia at our disposal: video, audio, images, augmented reality, maps, gps and more. Not only will your group be out racing around solving clues, but more for points they will also have missions where they will meet up with our team at pre-determined locations to compete in challenges.
Live & Interactive
Receive instant feedback on your answers, live messages from your facilitator and status updates from all of the teams. You’ll get bonus challenges when you reach certain point thresholds, timed questions, a live scoreboard and more curveballs than you can throw a… well, a curveball at!
GPS challenges to unlock where you’ll have to be in a specific location to activate your tasks on your smartphone or tablet.
Image Recognition challenges where you’ll have to scan an image, plaque, beer mat, label or indeed anything we choose to unlock your tasks.

One of the coolest benefits of this event is it can be run anywhere in the world, and even in multiple locations at the same time! This is perfect for companies with offices spread out across the country or even around the world. Wherever people are participating, we recommend you finish at a bar/restaurant for drinks, post-race storytelling and winner recognition.
“The hunt was a huge success! Even this skeptical crowd of mobile app building designers and engineers were pleasantly surprised with the very cool smartphone application, and everyone had a really great time! Michael and his team did a terrific job facilitating and the whole event went very smoothly. The way that the application was customized for our company and the specific route we chose was just perfect. There’s already been a buzz around the rest of the office in other departments about how cool the Scaventure hunt is for team building, so you may be getting some calls very soon!”L.D. – Pandora
