DALLAS, March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Calypso, Inc. (OTCBB:BCYP), developer of digital innovation intellectual property, products and services, secured the honor of official mobile gamification platform for the second time at ad:tech. DashTAGG™ along with SocialEcho™, EMGAGE™ and PopShare™ will be exhibited at ad:tech San Francisco 2014, at booth 2251 at the Moscone Center March 26 to 27.
"Gamification is an effective method for brands to engage advocates," said Kimberly Dunn, Marketing Director of ad:tech. "We ran a successful DashTAGG game at our New York event in November 2013. It was fun, combining both physical and digital participation ensuring the maximum engagement of attendees. More importantly, it encouraged attendees to interact with each other and engage more deeply with the presentation, events and exhibitors. For our upcoming show, we decided to run our own game: the ad:tech San Fran Challenge using DashTAGG, which we plan to promote."
"We were very pleased DashTAGG received such positive feedback in New York and are excited to showcase our new features in the ad:tech San Fran Challenge," said Bill Ogle, CEO of Blue Calypso. "We are proud to be selected again by the world's renowned interactive advertising and technology conference that hosts 8,500+ marketing and technology professionals from agencies, brands and publishers. We believe it validates DashTAGG's effectiveness in increasing event participation."
DashTAGG is a unique social mobile game of "tag" where players take pictures of each other to earn points and win prizes and awards. It is geared to increase event participation and interaction while growing visitor-to-buyer conversion rates. Games are sponsored by retailers or events which provide physical locations to activate "TAGGs" by scanning specific QR codes. Game sponsors may offer cool prizes, merchandise, trophies and access to exclusive events like parties, shows and concerts. For more please visit www.Dashtagg.com
