Test Your Health IQ


This is a way of combining responsive design with an interactive quiz and a robust SEM and social media strategy to drive qualified traffic to your tradeshow booth.

It took a lot of effort coming up with the strategy – finding the budget – soliciting partners and sponsors – establishing terms and conditions – and marketing it via paid and organic social media as well as SEM. Results were strong and ultimately two winners were selected.


Each year Georgia attends the world’s largest health IT gathering: the Health Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference. The Hospital Management Systems Society (that later became HIMSS) was in fact founded in Georgia. Today, HIMSS is an organization made up of healthcare providers and technology suppliers (vendors) with chapters across the nation.

This year we wanted to create a fun and interactive means of educating tradeshow attendees about the life science assets that Georgia has to offer. The idea for a Health IQ quiz was born. Participants were able to take the quiz on any desktop or mobile device of their preference, as well as share scores on their favorite social media channels. Winners had the potential to win a getaway to Savannah, Georgia or a year’s supply of Coca-Cola products.

All submissions and anyone using the custom hashtag #GAValueChain were displayed on a large flat screen as a live social media stream.

While the tradeshow and contest are over, you may still enjoy testing your health IQ knowledge. Have you been eating your Georgia Peaches? Give it a try here – Georgia.org/HealthIQ
