In this short video you can see how this large cultural event successfully used iBeacon technology to enhance visitor experience. 60+ beacons were placed around the 35 acre site, and the multilingual iPhone and iPad app was created using the Locly online publishing platform.

Visitors to the National Eisteddfod of Wales 2014, used the app to view information that was relevant to what was nearby, such as activity schedules and competition results. They could also discover more information about exhibitors – from artists and performers to businesses and food menus. Notifications was used to welcome visitors and inform them of special offers and the latest news.

This is an excellent, real-world beacon case study. Watch this short video to learn more about what’s possible with iBeacon technology and the Locly platform. If you’re interested in using beacons at your next event then we’d love to hear from you.
