Benjamin’s presentation will give a brief introduction into the principles of Gamification, which could be also described as Game-Thinking to address the target group of the 21st century. Based on the principles of core motivation, Gamification describes the theoretical approach to transform methods of game design and player engagement into business solutions with no initial game context. Traditional businesses have to adapt or reinvent themselves, to keep the pace, especially in the “analogue” Outdoor environment. As challenging as it might seem for some, this process is still an ongoing one, and smartphones and apps are not the end of the line. New tech is already approaching with Virtual Reality on a short term and the fascinating possibilities of Mixed Reality in the long-run. As implausible, as it might seem in the first place, those technology trends combined with the learnings of Gamification offer some promising capabilities to bring both worlds of “analogue” and “digital” even closer together and attract customers to explore outdoor activities in novel and varied experiences.
