The Louisville Visual Art Association integrated elistik beacons into their 2017 Open Studio Weekend. Over the weekend of November 4th, the LVAA had over 60 beacons spread throughout Louisville, Kentucky inside of galleries.
As people made the way around the city they were able to checkin to galleries and received welcome notifications on their phone as they approached. This created a more engaging digital experience and also gave galleries the opportunity to extend their reach from outside their location and pull users in.
Since many studio locations were located in residential areas, having the beacon broadcasting also made it easier to identify which buildings were hosting a gallery. This type of event covers many miles and has a very wide footprint, so any and all efforts to expand the signal and reach becomes incredible valuable.
We look forward to seeing how we can utilize elistik beacons at studios throughout the year and create engaging content for customers to give feedback and hopefully experience and appreciate local art. Thank you to all who attended this years Open Studio Weekend and we look forward to being a part of your experience in 2018!
