Telmap Releases a Special Edition of M8, your local mate Exclusively for Mobile World Congress 2013

Telmap, pioneers in mobile location-based services, released today a special edition of its direct-to-consumer app M8, your local mate tailored specifically for participants of Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. M8 for MWC is offered in both English and Spanish and is specifically designed to allow people attending the show from around the world to feel like locals while in Barcelona this year. Offering a wide array of practical features, M8 for MWC allows users to explore Mobile World Congress, find local restaurants with reviews and table booking, find hotels and make reservations, find special offers nearby, check-in via Facebook, discover the city of Barcelona through the integration of leading travel guides and navigate by car or on foot.

To assist in getting around Mobile World Congress, a dedicated “MWC” widget has been added to the home screen of M8 for MWC. From this widget, attendees have access to valuable information such as an indoor map of the exhibition, a complete directory of all exhibitors, taxi, metro station and ATM finder. What’s more, users will be prompted to download their respective country’s M8 once they leave Barcelona (where applicable).

Staying true to Telmap’s commitment of offering local market content, M8 for MWC is loaded with some of the most recognized and reliable content providers in Spain:

Paginas Amarillas | A comprehensive business directory for local search around
Barcelona
El Tenendor | A premiere restaurant guide with reviews/ratings & table booking
HRS | Hotel Reservation Services where users can find, learn about and book hotels
Coupies |Local deals & coupons nearby as well as the ability to redeem them from
within M8
TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet | Travel guides packed with Barcelona information,
points of interest and even nightlife

“Business travel in an unfamiliar city that’s packed with convention attendees can get a little intimidating. We are excited to provide participants of Mobile World Congress with a local and familiar feeling while staying in Barcelona this year. Our exclusive special edition of M8 for MWC will enable users to find and book a table in city restaurants, make their way safely back to their hotels, access exhibitors and venue information from within the app, find deals for their must-do shopping, locate the nearest metro station or ATM, and hopefully make their business travel experience easier and a lot more fun and less intimidating.”
