Announcing Belgian Girl Geeks Event #1: Treasure Hunt Contest in Antwerp

Monday, May 19, 2014 4 Permalink 3

Hello ladies,

Initially I wanted to wait with posting the announcement until our website is ready, but I’m too impatient so here we go :-)

For our 1st edition we’re going outside! Our start & end location will be the Hello bank! pop-up store in Antwerp, but in between you’ll be on the hunt for prizes on the Meir using beacon-technology offered by Nexen. This technology is rather new so to be able to participate in the Treasure Hunt Contest you need an BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) support. Meaning an Apple smartphone as from iPhone 4s or an Android device as from 4.3. Let’s say a smartphone of maximum 2 years old. For Android you can test if it will work on your smartphone by already downloading the BeaconApp: if you get to see the app in the app list, it should work! If not you might have to update your software.

    I am on the ‘waiting list’ but I was wondering: can I still join, just for fun? Or is it still possible people will cancel as it was last time at BGGD?

      Hi Annelies,

      It’s definitely possible that some ladies will still unsubscribe last-minute. Of course you’re welcome to join, but there will only be a goodie bag for the 50 ladies on the I’m In-List. See you Saturday?!
