SCVNGR Collaborates With Kodak to Engage Attendees at 2011 CES Kodak Booth(January 06, 2011)
LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/06/11 -- As the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) kicks off today, Kodak is showcasing its innovative products at the event by teaming up with location-based game SCVNGR. Kodak's collaboration with SCVNGR at the world's largest consumer technology trade show incorporates game dynamics to reach out and engage attendees with experiential Kodak branded challenges and to reward them for interacting with the Kodak brand and products at CES.
SCVNGR is a location-based mobile game and game platform all about going places, doing challenges, earning points and unlocking rewards. Consumers play for free, while sharing gaming activity with SCVNGR, Facebook and Twitter friends. Kodak has built challenges on SCVNGR's customizable game engine for increasing engagement at the Kodak exhibit. By playing fun, quick challenges at the Kodak booth (like the "Momentous Moment" challenge where visitors define what a KODAK MOMENT means to them), CES attendees can earn points towards unlocking the chance to win a Kodak prize pack, consisting of new products ranging from the KODAK EASYSHARE TOUCH Camera to the KODAK ESP C310 All-in-One Printer.
"Kodak is known for its innovations in imaging technology announced at CES year after year, and SCVNGR is all about having fun and engaging people at the places they go," said Chris Mahl, SVP and chief brand alchemist at SCVNGR. "Our collaboration with Kodak provides CES attendees with a fun, interactive way to explore Kodak's newest products and services, and increase Kodak's product awareness and brand loyalty through gameplay."
"By working with SCVNGR to create a fun, mobile experience for CES attendees at the Kodak booth, we're furthering our commitment to enriching people's lives through innovative technologies," said Leslie Dance, VP Brand Marketing & Communications at Kodak. "Kodak's exhibit at CES is an important way for us to showcase our new products and to engage with consumers, so we're thrilled that our collaboration with SCVNGR provides a new way for people to experience our exciting new technologies at CES and reward them for interacting at our booth."
Kodak's challenges on SCVNGR will be live throughout CES, from January 6-9.
