Engaging Attendees With Notifications

Notification Open Rate Average VS TNW

The Next Web Networking conference app, powered by our location based marketing platform, helped navigating the conference attendees as they arrived to the city of Amsterdam. We helped directing the visitors to badge collection points with push notifications and map routes, all spread across multiple grounds – airport, train station and downtown.

We also provided valuable updates to attendees on site. To help them keep track of the upcoming events that are not part of the schedule, we’ve set in place dynamic reminders. They triggered timely invites to conference side events, such as food truck BBQ, opening and closing parties in town.

Collecting Location Intelligence On Site

Our platform also measured the movement patterns across the conference venue, such as foot traffic to different speakers and stages. Measuring average time spent there, enables TNW to see which ones were the most popular.

Along with that, we’ve collected more extensive location insights about attendees, e.g. which country they came from and how long on average they stayed at the event. This helps TNW enrich their user profiles based on movements and use these insights to communicate in a highly personalized way during future events.
