San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 24, 2016
DoubleDutch, the global leading provider of mobile event apps and event performance analytics, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as an OnMedia Top 100 winner. DoubleDutch was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
Inclusion in the OnMedia 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. The winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2016 list.
“We’re honored to be recognized by AlwaysOn as an OnMedia Top 100 winner,” says Lawrence Coburn, CEO of DoubleDutch. “The fact of the matter is the biggest marketing spend at events is still funded by the physical world; the business model for events has remained stagnant for 850 years. DoubleDutch believes in the power of digitization to change the events industry in ways never thought possible. We are incredibly proud of how far we’ve come in revolutionizing the space and have big plans to continue innovation through 2016 and far beyond.”
DoubleDutch is recognized as an innovator in the event technology industry for its data-driven approach to creating the ultimate engagement marketing channel. It takes a unique approach by marrying engagement and event performance to create memorable and measurable events, allowing marketers to easily track ROI. The company is revolutionizing the event marketing industry, currently the largest marketing spend in the world, by providing marketers with pre-event analytics, performance during the event, and post-event insights to extend the impact of events long after they end.
“This year’s OnMedia 100 winners are building on successes in digital media and branching out into new territory, taking advantage of today’s advances in cloud computing and other on-demand services. Social commerce is flourishing, bringing prosperity to a wide variety of retail markets. Payment options are becoming even more user-friendly and secure. And advertising, marketing, and PR companies are using the recent data explosion to break down established practices and bring people what they want—exactly when they want it,” says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “OnMedia 100 winners continue to open up new ways for consumers to connect with goods and services. Innovation in the digital media sector shows no sign of slowing down, and we predict even more growth and positive disruption coming during the next few years.”
