HOLLYWOOD MUSIC IN MEDIA AWARDS TO LAUNCH IMMERSIVE APP WITH BRANDWOOD GLOBAL FOR 2018 AWARDS SHOW
Mobile Application Audience Engagement and Data for Music Awards Show
Los Angeles, CA, April 27, 2018– Brandwood Global, Inc., a Los Angeles based entertainment technology company and Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA), the leading Hollywood- based music awards show which specifically recognizes music in all forms of visual media have teamed up to create a real-time interactive experience for the HMMA Show streaming on Facebook LIVE from Hollywood, California. After several successful years of operating the show without a mobile application or large-scale social integration, Brandwood Global technology will increase engagement. Brent Harvey, Executive Producer and Founder of the HMMAs wanted to create a substantial virtual experience enhancing audience interaction for a new vision of presenting awards shows.
“We are thrilled to be the first award show to have this interactive app technology available to fans, artists, composers, songwriters, industry professionals and the general public to enhance viewer experience, and at the same time provide a unique direct-to-consumer platform for our sponsors. This is going to be a blast!” exclaims HMMA founder / executive producer Brent Harvey
The official HMMA mobile application designed by Brandwood Global, integrated with the Brandingo SDK, was created to engage attendees as the awards show unfolds in real time and in post-event edited content. As the show progresses, the app engages attendees directly with relevant retail platforms and even allows charitable contributions to Physicians for Peace, an official non-profit organization of the HMMA show. The app has the unique function of giving brands and product sponsors direct ROI and customer data from interactions during the show.
“We create enhanced and engaging audience interactions during awards shows. It is one of the unique features of our Brandingo SDK. Working with HMMAs is exciting to us because we feel the music awards shows are untapped opportunities. At the HMMAs, our Brandingo SDK will work within the HMMA app to help brand sponsors measure and receive the ROI increasing engagement and customer loyalty,” said Stephanie Weier, CEO and Founder of Brandwood Global.
Brandwood Global and HMMAs plan to continue partnering in the upcoming live award show on November 14, 2018 and will further explore how the HMMA app can capture new revenue and build audience engagement. Data analytics will be measured anonymously which do not infringe on user privacy in the app. The information collected will include user downloads, purchases, social media posts and engagements.
Social responsibility is an exciting element of this collaboration with Brandwood Global and the HMMAs through their engagement with Physicians for Peace (www.physiciansforpeace.org), a Norfolk, Virginia-based for purpose training organization that pairs volunteer surgeons with hospitals and clinics in developing countries.
“Our volunteers work with the world’s most vulnerable populations,” according to Jamie Morgan, CEO of Physicians for Peace. “In Malawi, for example, there are only 42 surgeons for a population of 19 million, more than half of whom are children.” He adds, “Physicians for Peace is a strong believer in the power to heal through Medicine and Music and is proud to partner with the Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
