Bring a DIY kiosk to your next outdoor event

Ever wanted to bring your own kiosk to an outdoor event like a game of baseball, a fishing tournament, or a party? There’s an easy way to make your own DIY outdoor kiosk that you can use for any event to collect data that you’d normally have to get with pen and paper like sing-ups and event registration. All you need to do is bring one of your Android tablets or smartphones with you the next time you go and use a digital kiosk app like Kiosk 24x7. Apps like Kiosk 24x7 have all you need to set up and run a DIY outdoor kiosk. Just download the app and choose what survey and configuration you want to use

Take a DIY outdoor kiosk anywhere

There’s no need to worry about having to connect to the internet since an outdoor DIY kiosk works offline. This makes it so all you need is to make sure your battery stays charged for the duration of your event. Just put your kiosk into kiosk mode, and put your tablet where guests can access it. For best practice, it’s good to buy or make your own tablet stand. Android tablets and smartphones are light so you don’t have to worry about lugging them up a mountain. Just put it in your backpack and set it up when you arrive at your destination

Register guests for tournaments, giveaways, parties, and much more

DIY digital outdoor kiosks let you replace pen and paper stands for registration, and focus on what’s important. Use a kiosk for event registration, sign-ins, and giveaways all by using your own custom surveys to collect data. Just make a survey that gets names, and the data you need such as emails and let the kiosk run on kiosk mode so guests can enter in their data at their own time

For example, if you’re having an outdoor party that has a giveaway where guests guess how many jellybeans are in a jar you can use a DIY digital kiosk to replace a pen and paper drop-in box. Just use a form that lets guests enter in their name and their guess. Then afterward just apply a quick search to your kiosk for the correct number of jellybeans and see who got it right
