At the Ball, Great Emphasis Is Put On Technology
As a pioneer in this field, and as the first ball to provide this kind of service to its guests, the Ball of Industry and Technology offered an app for iOS and Android.
In order to further strengthen its leading role in 2017, for the first time in the history of the Viennese ballroom dancing culture, indoor localisation  based on Bluetooth technology will be possible this year. So-called iBeacons that allow an extensive coverage of the building of the Musikverein will be used for localisation, and thus will offer better orientation for the guests.
Get the app „TC Ball“ on Apple AppStore and Google PlayStore and discover an exciting new technology with us first hand.
Stay on the ball with technology!
