I’d like to use the SpeedQuizzing software system to host a one-off event

To host a one-off  SpeedQuizzing event yourself you will need to buy a minimum of one SpeedQuizzing Activation and the SpeedQuizzing Pocket Hub router.

Unless you’d prefer to just try the demo version in which case just click here.

What will I need?

  • Laptop computer.
  • SpeedQuizzing Wireless Hub (and ethernet cable). The less expensive Pocket-Hub can now be returned within two weeks of purchase for a refund)
  • Sound system to amplify your voice and the audio output from the laptop.
