All Your Tools In One App

Perform all your badge scanning activities in a single place, combined with your fully featured event app.

Lead Retrieval

Exhibitors use their own devices to scan badges and take notes on leads.

CEU Tracking

Check attendees into and out of sessions. Generate reports for CEU, CME and other educational credit tracking.


Sprinkle QR codes around your event for a fun scavenger hunt, or award points for attendees scanning each other.

More Value for Exhibitors, More Revenue for You

Exhibitors can easily scan badges with their own mobile devices, no need to rent hardware. Or, if they prefer, attendees can scan unique QR codes at the exhibitor’s booth to request more information.

Pathable’s flexible scanning tool can read almost any QR code, offering instant integration with your existing badge printing solution.

You decide which exhibitors get to use the scanning functionality: distribute it to all or upcharge for increased revenue!

Track Attendance at Events for CEU Credits

Many associations require validation of attendance for awarding continuing education credits (CEU’s) and Continuing Medical Education credits (CME’s). Turn the mobile devices your staff and volunteers already have into integrated check-in tools.

  • Check-in and (optional) check-out
  • Waitlist management and real-time alerts when attendees arrive at oversubscribed sessions
  • Check in to educational sessions or the conference itself
  • Keep lines down by allowing attendees to scan themselves into sessions
  • CEU tracking integration with YourMembership™

Gamification and Scavenger Hunts

Gamification is a great way to build engagement and excitement within your event, and Pathable’s built-in gamification engine makes it simple.

Scavenger Hunt

Use the gamification tool to generate QR codes and assign points for them. Attendees earn points by solving your puzzle, by checking into the Genius Bar or dozens of other locations. The only limit is your imagination.

Attendee-to-Attendee Scanning

Encourage and reward social interactions by assigning points for scanning each other's badges.

Session Attendance

Session check-in isn't just for CEU tracking, make it part of your game, too! Encourage session attendance by assigning points for scanning into important breakouts or other agenda sessions.
