Chamber launches Mobile App for the Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival
August 6, 2013, The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Integrity Data, has created a new mobile app for the Lincoln Art & Balloon Festival to help festival-goers have all the information about the event in the palm of their hands anytime night or day. This free mobile app is designed to help guests to the festival maximize their experience and time at the event.
“We are hoping that the mobile app will help enhance the experience for guests to the festival. Finding a way to better communicate with our guests has been an on-going challenge for years. It is our hope that many people will download the new app and find answers to all of their questions and help prepare them for the weekend’s festivities,” said Andi Hake, executive director of the Chamber of Commerce. “We couldn’t have accomplished this project without the help from Integrity Data. Patrick Doolin made the process of getting all the data in this app and all the many decisions that go along with creating something like this seem less daunting than I had originally expected” said Hake.
When downloaded, the viewer can look at the Festival’s schedule of events at both the Logan County Airport and downtown Lincoln. They also can see what type of artists, crafters, wineries, breweries, BBQ competitors, as well as the app has a section dedicated to the hot air balloon pilots, even featuring a picture of the hot air balloons and a biography about each pilot. The new app gives information on the live entertainment that will be performing downtown and at the airport. Guests can set their own schedules in the mobile app to help them plan for the weekend’s events, get notifications about balloon flight and glow times and any other pertinent information that may be released during the weekend.
Out of town guests to the event can find information about the community, directions, hotels and restaurants to help them navigate through Lincoln. And if that is not enough information, under the documents section the complete festival program can be viewed.
The mobile app is now available for download and is available for both iPhone and Android. All other phones can view a mobile website that will give them the same information.
