ANNOUNCEMENT

For Immediate Release

Milledgeville goes mobile

Milledgeville, GA...Are you the type of person who enjoys treasure hunts? Did you ever want something for nothing?  How about receiving a text message on where to get a free lunch?  Welcome to the future of mobile marketing!

Catering to the rapidly increasing tech-savvy population, the Milledgeville Convention & Visitors Bureau decided to launch a city-wide mobile treasure hunt during the month of October!  The CVB has been collaborating with DreamWalk Mobile, a company that developed a GPS-based treasure hunt mobile application, to create a customized Hunt for our historic city.  The campaign will launch on October 1st and clues will be announced throughout the month with a grand prize package available to the first person to complete the Treasure Hunt! This FREE treasure hunt application is currently only available for the iPhone but will soon be developed for Android, Blackberry, Nokia and Windows Mobile.  

The DreamWalk Mobile app is essentially a treasure hunt that utilizes clues based on GPS coordinates which then in turn lead to amazing prizes.  The clue will refer to a location in Milledgeville and in order to "solve" it, you must physically go to that particular place.    

Throughout the month there will be instant prizes available along with the Treasure Hunt clues.  In order to find the clues, you will need to first download the application at http://www.dreamwalkmobile.com/.  This will let you know when and where the clues will be available.  (Hint: Participants might want to become a member of the Milledgeville CVB group on Facebook as well as follow them on Twitter! - links can be found on http://www.visitmilledgeville.org/)

We would also like to thank the participating businesses: Aubri Lane's, Amici Italian Café, Andalusia Farm, Blackbird Coffee, Bruster's, Buffington's, Fairfield Inn & Suites, Goodie Gallery, Milledgeville Museum Association, Pickle Barrel Café & Sports Pub, Quizno's, Roc's Cork Shoppe, and Tucan Tans.
