App shows the way 

Visitors can plan ahead on the app and create their own schedule of the exhibitors, food vendors, and competitions they want to visit at Fieldays 2021. Once they arrive, visitors can pin their car once they’ve parked, to save hunting for it at the end of the day. Those who purchase tickets online can log in, purchase, and save their tickets in the app, ready to scan at the gate.

The app can find exhibitors of interest, things to do, and essential services on the map and show the best route to a destination, with distance between location points and walking time duration built in.

Head of Customer and Strategic Engagement at the New Zealand National Fieldays Society, Taryn Storey, says the Fieldays site will look a bit different to what people are used to, so the app will be a good way finder.

“We’ve redesigned the site and done a few things differently to enhance the visitor experience, so the app will make it much more convenient for visitors to get around and make the most of their visit.”

The 2019 version of the Fieldays app was downloaded 42,394 times and saw over 1.3 million app interactions.
