Looking for a unique way to enhance the experience of your out-of-town attendees?

Need a solution to help get everyone to the right place at the right time for your event activities?

Want to help all of your attendees make the best use of their time?

HipMaps offers a unique solution: They design done-for-you custom maps where you share your local recommendations, as well as your event activities, on a branded map. Attendees use HipMaps’s one-of-a-kind smartphone app that allows them to see their real-time location on your map, read your comments about each place, and get directions.

Your map can include organized events as well as your recommendations for restaurants, libations, shopping, activities, entertainment, and wellness options. Your comments and details about each location ("Best BBQ in town!", "Cocktails and networking Thursday 4-6 p.m. in the Orchid Lounge"), as well as GPS-enabled directions, are included in the HipMaps app. You get to choose the locations and what you say about each one, plus the branding, colors, and style of your map—and HipMaps designs your map.

Your unique HipMap will eliminate attendees' frustration and save them time by removing the overwhelming number of choices provided by Yelp or a Google search, or wondering where to go and what to do in the hours outside of the actual event.

"HipMaps was created to make events fun, easy, and less overwhelming," says Rachel LeRoy, CEO and founder of HipMaps. "The app is free and easy to navigate, making sense of either unknown destinations or complex events by easily guiding users to either scheduled events or desirable locations that have been personally recommended by the host."

Your map is viewed in the HipMaps app with a unique access code, ensuring that it will only be viewed by guests you chose to share the access code with, and not available to the general public. Your map is delivered as an image file, which can be shared digitally via email, digital welcome packet, website and social media, and printed for welcome bags and signs, as well as on merchandise.

HipMaps recently designed a map for IMEX America 2022 in Las Vegas.

"This is the best thing I have seen at this show," remarked one of the 12,000 attendees. TSNN Tech News said, "HipMaps, an award-winning, custom smartphone map app for events, businesses, and destinations, released a personalized, deeply informative map for the recent IMEX America 2022 show in Las Vegas, demonstrating the company's ability to design unique maps for events of any size."

HipMaps is the winner of the 2022 Best Industry Innovation Esprit Award by the International Live Events Association. The company specializes in branded maps for events, meetings, conferences, festivals, weddings, and other special occasions, as well as for the hospitality industry including hotels, vacation rentals, wineries, and incentive travel.
