The web app is available free and is compatible with the iPhone and other web-enabled mobile devices. The Phoenix Forum guide is the third show guide web app TopBucks Mobile has created.
“We got a lot of good feedback on the guides we did for the January shows, and made lots of use of it ourselves, actually,” said Lea Busick, marketing director for TopBucks Mobile. “It isn’t something we’re going to do for every show, since some of the shows are creating mobile guides of their own, but we’re happy to provide this service for attendees when it is needed.”
Sherri Dosen, director of special projects for CCBill, said the show guide is a welcome addition to the communication and information tools that the Forum has always provided for attendees.
“TopBucks has done it again,” Dosen said. “We’re very excited to have our show info presented in a way that provides increased convenience, ease and immediacy for our attendees.”
In addition to the show guide, TopBucks Mobile is also hosting a mobile “i-Lounge” in the bar courtyard area from 1-4 p.m. each day of The Phoenix Forum.
“The TopBucks Mobile i-Lounge will be the perfect place for folks to swing by to discuss anything mobile related, recharge their mobile devices via our charging stations, play Wii games for prizes and enter in a contest to win an iTouch,” Busick said. “It’s an opportunity for attendees to engage in both business and pleasure, in a convenient, central location.”
The Phoenix Forum is scheduled April 8-10 at the Tempe Mission Palms in Tempe, Ariz.
