LEUSDEN, The Netherlands, June 7, 2011 -
A world premiere from the Netherlands: twoppy releases a free platform
where an event organiser can create a smartphone event app - let's say a
digital event guide on your mobile phone - and provide it to visitors.
Organisers of an event can add their event information to twoppy, after which
attendees can interactively access via their mobile phone for free.
Affordable for everyone
Until recently an event app was solely affordable for large events with a
correspondingly budget. The advent of twoppy makes this available for
everyone. The simple system requires no technical knowledge and the basic
functionality is completely free. Some premium optional features are
available (e.g. 'branding' of the dashboard, sponsor representation and
Suitable for any event type
The twoppy platform is suitable for any type of events: conferences,
fairs, festivals and sports events but also zoos, theme parks, museums, etc.
A number of well-known events such as TEDx Amsterdam conference, A State of
Trance (by Armin van Buuren), Rotterdam Zoo, National Aviation Theme Park
Aviodrome and Amusement Park Bobbejaanland already offer their visitors
program information through twoppy. After three months of operating in the
domestic Dutch and Belgium market, twoppy is expanding globally. The Dutch
entrepreneurs are aiming to become the global communication standard while
organising and visiting events.
How it works
The organiser can easily publish the information on his event through a
content management interface. General information, program items, interactive
map(s) and depending on the type of event: performers, speakers, exhibitors,
artists, attractions, etc. Organisers can adjust the event information at all
times so visitors are always up-to-date. Besides the program information it
is possible for visitors to rate program components, see who else is present
at the event and even send messages to each other within the app. And twoppy
empowers visitors to actively promote the event by sharing information
through social media such as Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin. You can start
creating your mobile event guide at www.twoppy.com
To experience the twoppy mobile event guide yourself as a visitor surf to
m.twoppy.com on your smartphone.
The startup is based in the Netherlands and founded in 2009 and is
officially released on February 15th 2011 in the Netherlands and Belgium
through a web based application suitable for all modern smartphones.
