The Tampere Events App delivered by Eatech will be used for the first time in the IAAF World U20 Championships on 10 – 15 July. The application provides the visitors with information about the schedule, arrival to the event and services for example. In addition, it’s possible to choose favourite competitions and the application will notify when they begin.
The application will be used in other major events held in Ratina this summer, such as Finland-Sweden Athletics International and different concerts. In the future the application will cover other events in Tampere and it will be further developed according to the users’ wishes. Some additional features have already been planned such as information on queues at the gates or traffic situation.
Co-created together with different stakeholders of the city of Tampere, the application has been developed using React Native. The control panel for event organizers utilizes modern web technologies and operates on Azure cloud service.
“Implementing the Tampere Events App and the related publishing system has been a great experience and an agile effort for our whole project team” says Matti Anttonen, Business Architect at Eatech.
“It’s a pleasure to be able to see how the international visitors in the World Championships will welcome the application. Based on these experiences we can develop the app further looking forward to the upcoming events in Ratina this summer.” Anttonen states.
The Tampere Events App is created by the City of Tampere’s Smart Tampere programme initiative 6Aika: City Guidance Ecosystem and Visit Tampere.
