intoGo, an app designed to provide personalized lists of events, restaurants, sites and more, has partnered with 904 Happy Hour, an entertainment and marketing company focused on events and venues, to transform the way Jacksonville locals find events.
“intoGo thrives on creating disruptive technology and we believe this new event platform is a big step towards disrupting the way events have previously been found in our community," said intoGo CEO Zachary Schwartz. "We want to make it easier for people to simply see what’s happening this weekend.”
The intoGo app, free to download on Apple and Android, now offers an event platform that gives users a curated list of the biggest upcoming events in Jacksonville. Users can look ahead at events coming in the next seven to 30 days. They can also search events by date, distance or venue. The app learns from users' feedback and personalizes their results. Users can purchase tickets to events and even request an Uber from within the app.
By bringing their services together, intoGo and 904 Happy Hour hope they've created a one-stop shop for local events.
"We are excited to partner with intoGo to help launch a new platform for North Florida residents and visitors to find events and things to do around the area," said 904 Happy Hour President Charles Wagoner. "This new resource will allow everyone who has a smartphone the power to efficiently find events, activities, restaurants and places of interest without having to search for a magazine rack or spend hours browsing social media and the internet."
In May, intoGo became the official city tourism platform by signing an exclusive agreement with Visit Jacksonville. It also won One Spark's technology category in 2015 under the name TheCity.Guide.
904 Happy Hour's social media channels have won "Best in Jax" and boast more than 120,000 followers. The company is responsible for The Beaches Oktoberfest and Freedom Festival.
