Mobile App Development.
With the 2019 Saphila conference at Sun City approaching, BRAVE was tasked with developing a mobile application for Android and iOS platforms that would allow attendees to access all conference information on their mobile devices while at the event.
Attendees also needed to be able to compete in a 'check-in' based game by visiting exhibitors stalls during the conference. The delegate who visited the most exhibitor stands during the run of the conference would be declared the winner, and walk away with a prize.
The app also needed to drive attendees to exhibition stands, feed conference information to attendees, and provide insights to the exhibitors once the conference was over.

The Live Stream
The various talks at the event took place in rooms of a certain capacity, which meant that once a room was full, no more attendees would be admitted inside.
However, we made sure that no one would miss out, and no one would be left behind. To do this, we used the location beacons we'd set up to judge when a particular room was full.
When that room was nearing capacity, we were able to live stream video of the talk onto people's phones. Thanks to this, attendees could watch the talk even if they couldn't attend it in person.
Interactive Venue Map
Users had the opportunity to engage with an interactive venue map on their mobiles, based on their current locations in and around the venue.
They could explore the floor plan and layout in relation to their location, and also had the ability to zoom and pan on the map.
