Have you ever been to an event whereby the organizers asks you to vote for your favorite product or item exhibited at the event and when you have found your favorite one, the mere thought of picking up the form, filling in your details and then trying to locate the box to place the vote into turned you off?
The best solution that I have encountered so far is when organizers incorporated some tech electronics somewhere at the premise which makes it possible for those who wishes to vote to vote at the press of a button. These systems calculate the number of votes automatically and is great but let’s just say that there is hefty cost to contend with. If you are not armed with such astronomical budget, then chances are, you are going to have to stick to the pen, paper, box method.
But there was a refreshing change at a recent wine tasting event held at the Flint Institute of Art in which participants could vote for their favorite wine at the scan of a QR Code.
What happens is that participants were asked to go around tasting the wide range of wines they have there. And when they find their favorite one, they can vote by scanning a QR Code. The code will automatically create a text message and when you hit the send button, the vote will be computed.
For those who did not own or use a smartphone, traditional method was allowed and alternatively, they can log onto the official website to vote there. At the end of the event, the organizers will sum up the number of votes collected for each type of wine and find their winner.
Suffice to say, the organizers are well connected to mobile technology; the institute has been around since 1928 and play an important role in helping the community learn, understand and be successful in different areas of arts. The institute is incredibly active in reaching out to the community via events, exhibitions, education programs and also exhibition of their large collection.
I am just incredibly happy to note that one of the oldest institutes of art is using the most modern mobile technology tool there is today. Brownie points for the organizers of the wine tasting event is in order.
