Spikes Asia 2017: Meet Spikey, the Facebook bot to help delegates with festival itinerary
Nadz Ruiz, September 20, 2017 | 5:46pm

So many speakers, so many stages, so many topics, so little time! Make the most of this year’s Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity programme with the help of Spikey, the Facebook Messenger bot designed to be the delegates’ digital concierge during the three-day event. 

Spikey lets delegates explore, organise, and schedule their festival itinerary directly from their Facebook Messenger app. 

Detailed schedules, venues, speakers, and descriptions of the topics can easily be browsed and accessed. 

   

The delegate can also choose to set a reminder for his/her choice of session for when the day’s events get hectic.

The bot also provides for a filtering system according to theme or interest. Users can pick out themes they are interested in, and Spikey suggests relevant sessions.

  

Should the user require more details about a topic, the bot readily provides a short description. 

      

Or delegates can enter a query regarding the festival programmes, and Spikey responds accordingly. 

   

If the user is curious about each programme, the bot provides an overview as well as detailed schedules for a particular track. 

   

Delegates can already plan out their Spikes Asia 2017 itinerary with Spikey today by messaging the page here: https://www.facebook.com/SpikesAsia
