EventPilot’s Peer Finder module for WE16 provides app users with secure access to connect with fellow attendees based on engineering discipline or industry.

Gamification guides session attendance and exhibitor traffic by incentivizing attendees to play “the game” and rewarding top scoring participants for their engagement.
