Sheffield Design Week is an annual citywide celebration of design in all its forms. It involves over 20 venues in and around Sheffield.

The app provides information about the events, grouped by day and by venue.

With this app we used GPS for the location triggers rather than iBeacons. When users are nearby one of the participating venues they are automatically taken to a page showing the events taking place there.

‘We found working with Llama Digital and developing a Sheffield Design Week App a great success! It transformed the way our audience accesses venue information. Sheffield Design Week happens at multiple venues, at multiple times across ten days and the app¬†enabled people to access the information they needed and also become aware of events that were happening nearby. We would recommend the Situate platform to support any festival or event.”

Setting up GPS Triggers

Setting up GPS points is very easy using the Situate admin tool. You find the GPS coordinates by simply searching for a location and then dragging the pointer to exactly where you want it. Then specify a radius of between 10m and 100m.
