Miramar Beach, Florida (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
A new interactive mobile event App for South Walton Beaches Wine and Food Festival, April 24-27, is designed to make the festival experience more engaging and interactive for attendees. Event Live, the festival’s official App, helps consumers find local events from any geographic location. It also helps event organizers stay in touch with their audience.
“One of the best advantages is that once you find an event you like, you can save it, share it, and then interact with other people who are attending the event. It’s like a social network for each event,” said James Lopez, co-founder of Event Live.
The Event Live App can be downloaded onto all smart phones. For the iPhone, go to the App Store and search Event Live for the free download. For Android users, go to the Google Play Store and search Live Event. For everyone else, Event Live website has a mobile version that can be viewed on any smart phone.
The event access code is: wine.
The App lists all of the programming and schedules for South Walton Beaches Wine and Food Festival and is a convenient source for event updates and notifications, which occur in real time. Users can also see who else is attending the event, connect as needed and share information and photos across social platforms.
Event Live was founded four years ago as a social networking company for businesses. After encountering inferior conference Apps, Lopez, a Northwest Florida native, decided he could develop a superior App. And so he did.
“As we grew throughout the first year, we realized there was no App to locate local events no matter where you are,” explained Lopez, who went on to launch his event App in April 2013.
Now, any event organization can load an event at no cost. There is, however; a cost to load additional content. Every event that is loaded is promoted through the Event Live network, adding another level of value to event organizers.
The App event locator is confined to Northwest Florida currently though a national rollout is planned for later this year. For more information about Event Live, go to http://www.eventliveus.com or download the App.
