The Socio Lead Retrieval app is the most seamless way for your sponsors and exhibitors to capture and rate leads and glean enriched data — all by scanning attendees' QR codes. While exhibitors can add leads manually, scanning QR codes lets them focus on engaging with and qualifying leads without distractions.

Exhibitors can scan QR codes printed on badges, or scan them from the app directly. Learn more below! 👇

QR Codes on printed badges

When you use the powerful Socio Onsite on-demand badge printing and event check-in solution, you can easily print Attendee QR codes on badges as people check in! The Socio Onsite badge designer is simple to use, yet incredibly robust. For more on Socio Onsite, check this out.

Exhibitors simply tap the scan button on the Lead Retrieval app, scan the code, and they have a new lead! 🎉

QR Codes inside the Event App

When you activate Lead Retrieval for an event, the My QR Code feature is added to the Mobile App for each attendee. Attendees simply tap the feature to view their personal QR Code and allow an exhibitor to scan it.

Download all QR codes

If you want to use Lead Retrieval QR codes in third-party software, like using Orca Scan for session check-in, it's easy to download all attendee QR codes!

⚠️ Caution! Lead Retrieval scanning only works with the QR codes we provide. Lead Retrieval won't work with QR codes from any other source.

In your Lead Retrieval event, click QR Codes. In the modal that appears, click Download QR Codes.

Yeah, it's really that easy. 😁 The export file contains the following information:

  • Unique Identifier

  • First Name

  • Last Name

  • Full Name

  • Email Address

  • Title

  • Company

  • Groups

  • QR Code

  • Photo

  • Summary

QR codes look like this:

SCA-7022-1982005

The number segment at the end of the QR code is the same as the Unique Identifier. Never modify either number.

Pro Tip! 😎   

  • The External ID user field lets you identify users in our system with your preferred unique identifier from a system outside Socio — usually a third party or proprietary system. When this optional field isn't in use, the Socio Platform assigns a User ID.
