STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO SUPERCHARGING YOUR FESTIVAL

PINZA OVERVIEW

Pinza is brand new social media platform that combines the power of map geo-location with best-of-breed social features. Built around the idea of Maps and Pins, Pinza is an opportunity to create really powerful content for festivals and entirely new ways of interacting with guests

A Pin is a geo-located lat, long position in the world that can hold any information, like images, videos, livestreams, posts etc.

A Map is a collection of Pins grouped together. Maps can represent many things, like a music festival site-map, a sporting event, etc.

Our dynamic festival maps are fantastic ways to smoothly navigate whilst on-location, or remotely - but giving the feeling like you’re on-location, even when you’re not. In addition to normal social media posts and interactions (liking, commenting etc) Pinza allows for contributions, meaning anyone can contribute media to a Map that they don’t own. Let current, and past, festival goers built out the memories at your festival. You retain approval control of what appears where at all times.

The easiest way for festivals to use Pinza is by creating a map of their Festival layout, meaning everyone onsite with Pinza has instant access to a dynamic site map. Pins can refer to individual artists, showing when and where they are playing. At a glance ticket holders can see the entire festival schedule built into the dynamic map. And with Pinza contributions, guests will be able to contribute their photos and videos to the festival map, allowing the Map to organically grow with contributed media.
