Las Vegas Sands First Global Developer of Destination Properties to Offer QuickMobile Multi-Event Mobile Technology

QuickMobile SnapApp Provides Las Vegas Sands Self-Service Mobile App Building Technology for Event Customers in Las Vegas, Macao, Pennsylvania and Singapore

VANCOUVER, BC and LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Las Vegas Sands Corp is giving conference and meeting customers one more reason to choose one of its properties in Las Vegas, Macao, Pennsylvania and Singapore for their next event. QuickMobile today announced that Las Vegas Sands is the first global developer of destination properties to offer SnapApp, a self-service enterprise technology that will allow Las Vegas Sands to sell, create and distribute customizable, branded mobile event apps. SnapApp provides Las Vegas Sands an additional revenue-generating solution for its properties and a value-added service to drive venue loyalty and create more memorable and engaging experiences for meeting attendees. Las Vegas Sands expects to roll out its mobile event solution at all of its properties in February 2013.

Mobile Event Apps: A Logical Next Step
"When it comes to venue operations, Las Vegas Sands has a first-class reputation, and their customers are loyal because of the consistent quality service that they receive," said Patrick Payne, CEO of QuickMobile. "By using our SnapApp technology and our QuickStart platform to provide mobile applications to its customers, Sands is creating a value-added solution that dramatically enhances the conference experience for attendees. At a time when everything is going mobile, offering a mobile event solution is a logical next step for the owners and operators of the largest venues in the world. This solution provides their customers with one more reason to bring their events back to a Sands property. Delivering easy to use, leading edge mobile technology is an innovative and bold move that Sands can use to its advantage in the marketplace."

With QuickMobile's self-service SnapApp multi-event platform, Las Vegas Sands staff can quickly and easily develop custom event apps for event customers. To begin the process, QuickMobile developed a branded master app for each of Las Vegas Sands' four regions. Sands staff uses SnapApp to create and deliver unique events that reside in the master app. Customers can choose from more than 30 built-in features and components such as in-app messaging, exhibitor and speaker profiles, photo galleries and social media. SnapApp technology also includes security, privacy and access settings, and the ability to select mobile device platforms for each event. Venue customers and event attendees only have to download the Las Vegas Sands master app for each property once as new customer event apps will be accessed from inside the master app using a special PIN or QR Code.

Advantages of Venues as the Technology Provider
Traditionally, mobile event apps are built around an event rather than a venue. Since meetings are already coming to Las Vegas Sands properties, the company can offer customers a number of advantages, including:

  • Providing an efficient set-up process that leverages consistent features across all Las Vegas Sands mobile apps;
  • Selling sponsorships and advertising opportunities to resident and local companies; turning apps into revenue-generating solutions; and
  • Creating an affordable, easy-to-use mobile solution for any-size meeting by spreading costs across multiple events and companies.

Supporting Las Vegas Sands Green Strategy
Going mobile also supports Las Vegas Sands' Eco 360 degrees Global Sustainability strategy, which is focused on minimizing the company's environmental impact and operating sustainable building development and resort operations. By deploying a mobile event solution, Las Vegas Sands can eliminate the impact and costs associated with developing and printing event guides, updates and other paper-based materials. Unlike printed guides, mobile event guides can be updated in real-time, which means attendees will always have the current information.

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago.

The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors.
