More on the Awards Night

If you haven’t caught up with the Awards night yet, you will find lots of information about it on the Awards Web Page. It includes photos that we took on the night as well as details of who all the winners and finalists were.

We enjoyed lots of media coverage including IT Brief, The Channel, PC World, and was apparently on the front page of Google NZ News for 3 days which is a real coup. The benefit of this is of course that more people get the message that LBS is here and now.

We will be working closely with some of the entrants to see how we can help some of these applications are built and available to the public.

The entries are starting to come in for the Location Innovation Awards

Within half an hour of the Location Innovation web site going live and the Geekzone Forum going up, we had our first 2 entries into the awards and are now up to 5 entries in the first 36 hours which is really exciting.

The web based media have also given us great support with stories in The Channel, The National Business Review, Scoop, Reseller News, NZS.com, Tone Magazine and PC World.

We have sent the release to lots of newspapers around the country so that everyone gets a chance to participate and are also working on getting the message out to the education community, because we are very keen for students to get in on the act and even have a prize for the best student entry.

Tomorrow we are doing presentations to students at the Raffles College of Design & Commerce and Massey University.
