The Happiness Game

The incentive travel industry is under-going some common shifts: from program to individual, from paper to pocket (mobile device), and from “what can you do for me” to “how can I generate happiness in my space’. The education day will be anchored by the messages from The Happiness Advantage, a book focused on the advantages corporations around the globe are benefiting from with the lessons learned from 25 years of research into positive psychology. 

How will we help attendees reinforce this positive behavior? By gamifying it of course! 
Through the use of game challenges located within the 21st Annual Incentive Invitational App from QuickMobile available to all attendees, we will help attendees create positive connections with each other, collect images of people enjoying the outstanding spaces at host properties, share collectable information about  what's next for our industry, and reinforce the excellent adventures attendees are experiencing throughout the event.
