With thousands of senior marketing executives dispersed across multiple venues in NYC, Advertising Week X utilized SweetSpot-WiFi, a powerful location based mobile technology to deliver real time, event specific information to attendee smartphones. SweetSpot was used in conjunction with the Advertising Week App and digital signage to deliver a high quality, fully interactive experience for show attendees.

SweetSpot installed its location based solution to engage attendees on their smartphones and assist them with on-site show planning and real time information access. SweetSpot eliminated the issues common with strained or weak cellular networks and insured that show related information was readily available to anyone with a smartphone or tablet, even while deep inside the conference facilities.

“I think we achieved the perfect balance of information delivery for our guests”, said Lance Pillersdorf, EVP and co-founder of Advertising Week. “We selected best of breed partners to deliver a high quality experience. Attendees were able to use the Advertising Week App before they arrived to plan what seminars to attend. Once on site they were able to use SweetSpot’s local delivery network to have an equally robust and personalized experience on their smartphones and tablets.

“We were delighted with attendee usage of SweetSpot, said Ryan Ross, CEO. ”We had thousand of attendees interact with both Advertising Week content as well as maximizing exposure for our corporate sponsor, Publicitas, who was equally pleased with their results. ”

“SweetSpot clearly demonstrates the consumer appetite for targeted information, delivered reliably at a local level”, says Bruce Brandfon, Managing Director of Publicitas North America. “We are excited with the possibilities that SweetSpot opens up for location based advertising. On the basis of these results, we are exploring other environments where SweetSpot can be utilized.”

Future Advertising Week events will use a similar approach to insure that attendees have the information they want, when and where they need it.
