100 speakers. 7 days. 1 electrified city.

That’s the tagline for the first annual Chicago Ideas Week. From October 10th through the 16th, DoubleDutch will be powering the Chicago Ideas Week (CIW) mobile app.

CIW attendees can download the app for their smartphone. The app runs natively on iPhone, and Android — plus there is an HTML5 version as well.

NBC Chicago has already showcased the app and DoubleDutch in “Tapping into Chicago Ideas Week on your Smartphone.

NOTE: If you are a registered CIW attendee, please check your email for log-in credentials.

Chicago Ideas is the official mobile app of the Chicago Ideas Week community. Use it to:

  • Find event descriptions, location, and other agenda information
  • Add specific agenda items to your Favorites list for easy access

  • Share your location
  • Learn about the speakers and sponsors
  • Earn points and badges

The likes of Bill Clinton and 2 DoubleDutchers – Lawrence (CEO) and Aaron (Project Manager) – will be in attendance. Lawrence and Aaron will be around to promote the app, troubleshoot app issues, and attend some events (there are some really neat events to check out). I have a feeling you will also be able to find them at the Weezer concert. It’s just a feeling.

The CIW event is meant to “bring the world’s top speakers together with Chicago’s best thinkers to create an ecosystem of innovation, exploration, and intellectual recreation.” This is all being facilitated through the DoubleDutch app, which makes it even better!
