Swiss apps award 2014 – wins

Berufsmesse Zürich has been awarded the silver medal in the category Productivity at this year’s Award Night of “Best of Swiss Apps Award 2014“. The jury has selected the official app of Berufsmesse Zürich from 103 submissions.

The innovative app concept has been received with great appreciation: besides the usual information on exhibitors and fair program, which was already available in previous years, this year’s app features an interactive hall plan. The user’s position and navigation routes to locations inside the halls – very much like Google Maps but indoors – are shown on the map.

“We are proud that our app has won the Best Swiss apps award 2014  – Silver Award. Particularly, because it is the first time that indoor navigation technology has been deployed at a fair. This award motivates us to keep on developing apps, which deliver great benefits to our fair vistors.”, Freddy Berger, Project Manager Digital Business MCH Messe Basel.

The application has been developed by our Bern-based partner and app agency Apps with Love. AWL integrated positioning and navigation algorithms into the app to enable the above mentioned features based on iBeacon signals. The concept is new to such an extent, that it has never been presented at a fair before.

The application runs on Android and iOS with Bluetooth and location services turned on. It is available for free an can be downloaded from
