Companion is the UK’s market leader in mobile apps for events, conferences and exhibitions. The platform is designed to enhance visitor experience and is scalable across events and exhibitions at a range of venues.
2011 - 2013
LMMC's key task was to evangelise the idea that as more people access mobile services, there is the opportunity to provide a Companion digital platform for each destination location that enhances the experience of visitors. Objectives included securing third-party endorsement from organisers, the media and award bodies and the sourcing of funding for the further development of the platform.
LMMC achieved widespread publicity for the Companion concept. This recognition included finalist status at the Computing Magazine IT Awards and the San Francisco-based Appy Awards. LMMC helped the business establish winning relationships with major exhibition and conference organisers and the owners of shopping centres and further destinations. On behalf of the business leader, LMMC also ascertained an offer of VC funding.
