This is a fun, ingenious example of integrating social technology into a real-life application. Our goal was to have some fun and showcase our talent while connecting with clients, vendors, media and friends over a cold craft beer.
ADDISON, Texas (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Splash Media is proud to announce its upcoming Das Social networking event, which will include the debut of its one-of-a-kind technology called the #HashTap™. Das Social is scheduled from 2-8 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013; the debut of the #HashTap combined with a socially integrated photo booth is sure to be a social media extravaganza that perfectly complements the annual Oktoberfest Addison celebration!
Splash Media is always thinking of innovative ideas to showcase its culture, talent and creative thinking. Craft beer is a cultural staple, so the social media agency decided to marry Foursquare technology with craft beer and create the #HashTap kegerator.
Das Social is the interactive kegerator’s inaugural event, taking place at Splash Media Production Studios on the Addison Circle—just down the street from where Addison Oktoberfest 2013 will be taking place. Splash Media’s ingenious machine is linked to Foursquare, a technology that enables guests to check in at the tap. The #HashTap kegerator is the first of its kind; there have been other check-in-operated devices, but never a beer dispenser.
After checking in while standing in front of the kegerator, there’s a limited time for the beer enthusiast to position his or her pint below the tap. The kegerator will then dispense a perfect poured glass of beer that people can enjoy as they learn more about Splash Media.
“This is a fun, ingenious example of integrating social technology into a real-life application,” said John Dankovchik, CEO of Splash Media Group. “Our goal was to have some fun and showcase our talent while connecting with clients, vendors, media and friends over a cold craft beer.”
People who check into Foursquare at the #HashTap kegerator will be encouraged to discuss the machine on Facebook and/or Twitter using the hashtag “#HashTap.”
Das Social guests will also have the opportunity to learn about Splash Media’s production studios facility and its capabilities. The socially integrated photo booth will also be located in the studio. Various backdrops and props will enable guests to take unique photos with their friends. Those pictures will be automatically available for upload to the user’s Facebook/Twitter accounts, thanks to unparalleled social integration. This streamlines the steps needed to share pictures online with friends and family.
