Autography LLC announced today it is a finalist for the 2016 Sports Technology Awards in the category of Best Fan Engagement. Winners will be revealed on 15th April in London, England at a lunchtime ceremony to be attended by over 500 senior industry figures as well as current and former athletes.
Rebecca Hopkins, CEO of the awards explained, “This has been another exciting year for sport and technology continues to influence all facets of the sector to an exponential degree. We are delighted that, once again, as well as the biggest brands in sport, our finalists also include the most inventive tech start-ups, the vision of which means that they are equal in their ability to win in any category."
Autography recently made Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco even more memorable for some very lucky fans. At the Big Game Party hosted by the Thuzio Executive Club and co-sponsored by Autography, fans lined up to have pictures taken, personalized, and immediately sent by notable former players including Tiki Barber, courtesy of Autography's patented and award-winning technology.
“The event was casual, as opposed to scheduled and scripted, so people saw our technology at work and queued up on their own to experience it. It was great to see fans embracing the technology and understanding its awesome potential for connecting with talent in such an authentic and personal way,” said Autography CoFounder Tom Waters.
