iBeacons

9th February 2017

Categories: News

Rugby fans will be able to keep in touch with updates off the field thanks to pioneering new technology.

Conwy County Borough Council is piloting iBeacons at the under 20s Wales vs England Six Nations game at Parc Eirias on Friday evening (10/2/17).

The iBeacons will allow rugby fans to receive information through their smartphones by linking content to GPS locations. Fans will receive team updates and receive other information including alerts to forthcoming events, ticket news and food and drink offers.

The pilot is also being rolled out at Venue Cymru and will be used to promote tourism across the county.

Cllr Graham Rees is the cabinet member with the portfolio for tourism, and said: “iBeacons will allow Conwy to update sports fans and visitors at events with information which will enhance their experience and improve their enjoyment of an event.

“We are piloting iBeacons now, and hope this will be another way in which we can help drive tourism in Conwy and promote our county as a leading local authority and tourist destination.”

To access the information visitors will need to download a free app called iconwy, which is available at app stores.
