Future Platforms shows off CNBC/Davos Pulse event app

Congratulations to the team at Future Platforms who’ve just successfully deployed ‘DavosPulse’ — a mobile application companion for the world famous Davos summit event.
The app is a companion to the main World Economic Forum event. As with many major events, the really valuable conversations and networking takes place at the fringe briefings and parties. The challenge? Finding out what’s going on — and when. This is why you need DavosPulse.
Here are the app highlights …
  • The Davos Pulse app lists all the important extra events
  • Provides complete with comprehensive venue details and mapping to get you there
  • It can also send an email request for an invite to the closed list briefings
  • Holds a list of the events you’ve bookmarked to attend
  • Allows the user to share details of an event via email or twitter
  • Booking details for all cafes, bars, and restaurants to set up ad hoc meetings — I like this A LOT!
It also provides real time new and information from the CNBC team on the ground…
  • News items from the behind the scenes CNBC bloggers
  • Video reports from the CNBC broadcast teams
  • A view of the official CNBC Davos twitter feed with a retweet facility built in
All in all, it’s the smart networking tool for getting more done around the World Economic Forum 2011. Nice work Future Platforms.
