The 44Doors team put together an impressive showing at the Austin TEDx event this weekend.
When I arrived, I had a QR Code on my badge. When I got my badge, I scanned my code and “checked in”. On jumbo screens placed around the event hall, an announcement popped up: “Eric H. has arrived!”
Then as I went around the room scanning other’s badges, the screens would announce, “Eric H. just connected with Stephanie W.” and “Stephanie W. thinks Eric H. is an interesting person because ______.”
Everyone at the conference got involved, breaking the ice, introducing themselves to each other, making connections. All-in-all, over 1200 connections were made between attendees.
