Events are going mobile because people are mobile. It’s a trend that’s impacting all industries – even Carrots. With the introduction of easy and affordable solutions like MyEventApps, there are no longer any excuses to not go Mobile.
Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) August 14, 2012
Developed by FaveQuest Corp. using the MyEventApps solution, carrot lovers now have a comprehensive festival guide in the palm of their hands. The mobile app brings the carrot festival fans real time updates and fun social tools like the SouvenirCam to engage with the cherished event taking place on Saturday August 18th on the streets of downtown Bradford, Ontario. Fans can also use the app to get directions and join the conversation through the festival’s social channels.
Voted as one of the top 100 events in Ontario by Festivals & Events Ontario, Carrot Fest is deemed “The World’s Greatest Carrot Fest”. Here you will find many vendors, a farmers market, pro wrestling, the Carrot Fast 5km Charity Run, amusement rides, main stage acts, strolling entertainment, buskers, bands - and for the first time this year, a Mobile App to enrich the festivities’ experience.
Joe Lotto, Leisure Events & Marketing Programmer for the Festival says:
“With approximately 63% of live event attendees owning a Smartphone, going mobile was an easy decision to make! The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury’s Leisure Services strives to give our festival attendees the best, and with this mobile app we are achieving our goal! This app will help enrich our attendees experience at Carrot Fest. MyEventApps was very affordable, easy to use, simple to set up and manage our 30 plus events. MyEventApps have made this simple and affordable. I would recommend them to any of my industry counterparts!”.
With so many events taking place, it’s sometimes tricky to keep track of what’s happening when and where. The App is designed to make things easy by offering a complete calendar of events with locations, times, and additional details such as descriptions and videos. Attendees can add events, like the Carrot Cake Contest or the Flaming Carrot Fire Show, to their calendar and share them with friends via social networks and email.
The SouvenirCam allows carrot enthusiasts to take photos during the event, enhance them with a festival-themed souvenir frame, and share them on Facebook, Twitter and by email. Users can also view a GPS-enabled map to get directions, obtain real-time information on road closures in the Bradford area, and access the Festival’s Facebook and Twitter pages directly through the App.
Allan Isfan, CEO of FaveQuest Corp. says:
“Events are going mobile because people are mobile. It’s a trend that’s impacting all industries – even Carrots. More than half of mobile subscribers now have smartphones and that number is growing rapidly. Event goers simply expect to have all of the information on their phones nowadays and they rely so much on them to connect with each other before and during events. With the introduction of easy and affordable solutions like MyEventApps, there are no longer any excuses to not go Mobile.”
Earlier this year, FaveQuest launched MyEventApps in response to a need in the market from event organizations unable to afford custom-built development that often cost upwards of $10,000. Thanks to its simple online dashboard, anyone can now effortlessly build, manage and monetize one’s very own mobile app. MyEventApps has attracted a variety of customers such as local pubs, theaters, conferences, charitable organizations, sporting events and dozens of other festivals.
