Innovative location-based events app for Newcastle Startup Week


Our founding team worked with Paul Lancaster of Plan Digital UK - the organisers of Newcastle Startup Week to develop an interactive location-based mobile app for event delegates to use throughout the week. The app was built using the hybrid Ionic framework, to cater for iOS and Android users, along with a web-backed platform to allow the event organisers to login and dynamically change the schedule and running order as required, as well as view analytics on session attendance and venue attendance by users.
We developed a unique heat map that used a combination of background location visits and geofences around venues, along with a bespoke heat map algorithm, to map out anonymously where festival goers were during the week, to show where meetups and connections were occurring and which venues were the most popular in a highly visual interactive map.
