Ever attended a conference or festival where there are tons of events and no very good way of navigating outside of writing down the ones you want to attend and hope they are located in vicinity of each other? Startup Norway attended SXSW this year with a few hundred events, talks and panels spread out over a big city. Finding out what you wanted to attend was hard enough if you didn’t have to include the logistics of moving between the events and figuring out whom of your friends where going where.
Oslo Innovation Week seems to reach this level with 30 events in total and up to 10 events in one day. So the international startup Vamos, who’s co-founder lived in Oslo until recently, wants to help with this problem. Their event app allows you to navigate the events based on location and who you know that is going there. They are featuring OIW so you are sure to find all of the events in their app. We are looking forward to seeing if this helps navigating an event overload and locating friends and people you want to connect with on the events.
