We are thrilled to have Hippo Seasons in ‘New and Noteworthy’ in quite a few App Stores (including the US, UK, Germany, China…) and we have also been meeting people and showing off the app in Spain.

Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress 2013

This has been a fantastic industry event for us to attend. The new venue at Fira Gran Via was particularly impressive and we must have burnt off a few calories walking (along with 72,000 others) between the nine massive halls (240,000sqm) We met some great people and saw brilliant examples of Near Field Communication and Augmented Reality in action. Many interesting people were chatted to from lots of different countries and meetings had, some as part of a brokerage event (kind of speed dating for business) and who knows what possibilities the future holds!

Scotland Stand

We were delighted to exhibit as part of the Scotland stand set up by Scottish Development International and have the opportunity to promote our company to a global market, along with other seriously cool innovative Scottish companies.

Keynote & UKTI

Excellent keynote ‘Media in Mobile’ gave a good overall feeling for where the world is at on this fast moving landscape. And the intimate UKTI session reminded us, that although coding is currently king, with devices fashionable, quality content is actually the main focus for all now…
