Event professionals around the world were given 18 days to enter DoubleDutch’s First Annual Event App Giveaway Contest.

People entered the contest at the Event Marketing Summit in Chicago, at the Meetings Technology Expo in Washington, DC and online at http://contest.doubledutch.me/.

We had an overwhelming number of submissions from nonprofits, corporate sales kick-off conferences, associations, event marketing agencies, and more. This morning, we randomly selected a winner.

Drum roll please.

And… the winner is… Moderne Communications!

Moderne Communications will receive a branded native iPhone & Android app to use for a client or event of their choice. Here’s a little bit about them, from their website:

We are a huge proponent of non-traditional event marketing and engagement techniques (obviously), so we are excited to see how they choose to use the app to engage attendees at an upcoming event.

Many thanks to all those that entered and a big congratulations to Moderne Communications!
