Tech Tuesday highlights the best and brightest ideas in the tech world. ABCey would like to recognize these up and coming technologies for their innovative ideas and impact on the event world! This week we want to introduce you to WanderList, a digital travel guide that provides you with a hand-curated list of things to do in your current city!
WanderList is a digital travel guide which provides recommended restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and hotels around San Francisco with future plans to launch in other cities. This San Francisco startup was inspired by the more than 40 countries its team has explored.
WanderList’s main selling point is that travelers don’t have to lug heavy travel books around when they’re exploring different cities. Instead, they just check in on their phone to see where the best places around them are located. Since the content is frequently updated, globetrotters will always be given the most up-to-date information and be more informed about their traveling decisions.
Why We Love WanderList: Aside from being FREE, WanderList shows us where to go – places only locals know about – and tells us why that particular location is so cool. As event planners, we’re always looking to discover new venues and vendors, which is made so much easier by WanderList who finds us the best of the best. Since we use our phones everyday to call Ubers and post selfies to Instagram, why not discover favorite spots on your phone as well. Exploring cities was never easier!
We’re gearing up over here at the ABCey HQ for this week’s company retreat for Mobile Theory Inc., a division of Opera Mediaworks and the 3rd largest US mobile network! Mobile Theory is a a mobile advertising network that provides technology, solutions, and services to deliver advertising campaigns for brands, publishers/app developers, advertisers, and end users.
We were super thrilled to help out with their first ever All Hands event at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa Valley. Their jam packed itinerary includes a private event at the acclaimed Artesa Winery, daytime work sessions, a private wine tour, tasting and luncheon at Silverado Vineyards, and of course some poolside lounge time!
Mobile Theory has taken the executive role in everything from founding brands to building brands for top interactive companies like Tribal Fusion, Quantcast, Greystripe, Collective Media, Engage, Unicast, 24/7 Real Media and Glam Media. MT’s network of premium-quality mobile sites and apps provides exclusive, unduplicated reach to 90 million mobile Internet users, accessing 8 out of 10 US smartphone users via 1.2 billion impressions per month. WOWZA!
