"Hey you in Section 405, want a better seat?" Using Proximity Beacons to Take Fan Engagement to the Next Level at Sporting Events

Proximity beacon technology (such as Apple's iBeacon) is about to revolutionize the in-game fan experience. Outside of simple notifications, beacons can be leveraged with existing in-game technologies to offer fans and season ticket holders relevant offers, promotions and access at the right place and the right time. Radius Networks and OneUp Sports, fresh off of a successful partnership with Georgetown University, are continuing to implement cutting-edge beacon use cases for sports teams and its fans. This presentation will discuss how proximity beacons are being used to unlock a tremendous experience for the fans at a game.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
