We know, we know – it’s at about this time of year that we always send you an email asking you to download our revamped show app. We’re sure you’re tuning out already. However…
This year we’ve not so much given our app a revamp as a total revolution. In fact, we’ve done away with the idea of a show app altogether to create the first ever year-round dedicated app for the high-end travel industry.
Here are four ways the brand new Beyond Luxury app really is going beyond expectations (and beyond just our events) in the aim to become an everyday pocket essential for the luxury travel industry – and most importantly, how you can download it now.
CONNECT WITH THE GLOBAL INDUSTRY, WHEREVER YOU ARE.
Using geolocation technology, you’ll be able to see other Beyond Luxury app members that are the nearest to you. Pretty nifty, right? You can send a contact request to users which, once approved, will allow you to private message each other wherever you are. Members will be able to build up a database of relevant contacts for direct communication and see who’s currently travelling in their area.
KEEP ON TOP OF THE LATEST TRAVEL INDUSTRY NEWS AND TRENDS.
Did you know that Beyond Luxury Media has three regularly-updated industry blogs (JOURNAL for experiential travel, THE SHIFT for contemporary travel and THE BEAT for African travel)? Beyond Luxury app members can choose the travel movement(s) that interests them and all the latest posts will be pulled from the relevant blog feed(s) on to the app’s landing page, meaning you’ll never be out of the know.
DISCOVER AND APPLY TO ATTEND MINI EVENTS.
We have big plans to extend our network outside of our annual shows – and the app is where you’ll be able to be the first to find out about any mini events and apply to attend.
CUSTOMISE YOUR PROFILE AND MAKE IT YOUR OWN.
To get the most out of the app and ensure you make relevant contacts, you can customise your profile with a banner image, profile picture and details, as well as editing your settings to display availability (available, busy or invisible). It’s entirely up to you whether you customise your connections, events and news to reflect one community, or whether you leave the app open to the full range of Beyond Luxury Media movements.
Have we piqued your interest? Good, because we want our PUREists to be the first group of people to experience the brand new app and tell us what they think. Simply download using the links below; login with the email that you use for the PURE appointment system; and go! (Please note: once you have logged in, in order to maintain the quality and exclusivity of the app you must wait for your account to be verified before you will be able to access the full range of features.)
