Keeping an eye on the world
Host: Chris Newlands, CEO, Spelfie
Spelfie, a Tripsology Group Company, is pioneering Space to Consumer (S2C) strategies. Capturing satellite images of events and their attendees from space, in real-time. Spelfie subsequently distributes an experiential souvenir, powered by the event sponsor. Spelfie’s branded, organic and experiential imagery is optimised for social media sharing. As it’s hyper targeted and captured from space, this unique fan engagement, event activation and digital marketing opportunity is carbon friendly. Earth’s satellite imaging capabilities are set to expand considerably in the future and the prolificacy of these satellites will have significant future societal, commercial and climate benefits. Spelfie was awarded its patent in 2021, which will underpin plans to create future S2C partnerships.
