TGE Previews: Mobile Roadie casestudy

The Great Escape 2011

The Great Escape

Every day in CMU this month we are previewing a different session taking place at this year’s CMU-programmed Great Escape convention, which takes place from 12-14 May at the Brighton Dome.

And now the lowdown on the last of our case study sessions, which will take place on the Friday morning of the conference and focus in on specific companies and projects. This one should be particularly good because everyone’s gone app crazy in the last year. And the company whose name comes up time and again in musical app conversations is Mobile Roadie, so we’ve gone and got Stephen O’Reilly, who heads up their London office, to come and tell us more.

He’ll be bringing with him Martyn Davies, an expert in this domain, a co-founder of Music Hack Day and, most importantly for this case study, the man who put together the Take That app for Universal Music, the most successful app using Mobile Roadie technology to date. You can find out how it works, and how to make it work, from Stephen and Martyn, at The Great Escape in May.

To get into this, plus to attend all the other great panels, sessions, parties and gigs taking place at The Great Escape this year, get your delegates pass from escapegreat.com – and do it today to get the early bird rate of £125, which expires at midnight.
