Foursquare Day Hong Kong 2011

Foursquare Day Hong Kong 2011 is tomorrow, check out the details below, great to meet up whoever kicked you out of your mayor-ship.

W52 and enthusiasts of Foursquare users in Hong Kong will be teaming up to host Hong Kong’s Foursquare Day event at W52 bar on April 16th, 2011. Every year on 16/4, users of the most popular location based application Foursquare come together at “Foursquare Day” events (4 squared = 16, hence 16/4!) all over the world to socialize, meet each other in person and to just generally have fun participating in one of the biggest global parties in the world. Each user showing up and checking in contributes to the spirit of Foursquare, and it is in essence a huge social experiment to observe and appreciate the strength and draw of a social mobile platform.

We will be organizing the only large scale Foursquare day event in Hong Kong to provide a platform for Hong Kong Foursquare users to meet up, network and be inspired by each other! Apart from having our venue generously sponsored by W52 Restaurant and Bar, we will be having numerous activities throughout the night including (but not limited to!):

1. The SWARM – Yes, we’re all here for the swarm badge! And what’s better than meeting and greeting all the cool guys and girls in your swarm in a non-awkward fashion?

2. Bangin’ Check-in – Get yourself a free drink when you check-in at W52 for the event. After that, it’s happy hour until 9! Perhaps it’s also time for…

3. 20, 30, 40 – You don’t want to know what this is. Or do you? It’s not for the faint-hearted that’s for sure! [Hint: alcohol will be involved]

You won’t need to pay an entrance fee to any of the activities involved – so just save the date, come along and check in – celebrate Foursquare Day with us in style!

What is Foursquare?

Foursquare is a location-based mobile platform that makes cities easier to use and more interesting to explore. By “checking in” via a smartphone app or SMS, users share their location with friends while collecting points and virtual badges. Foursquare guides real-world experiences by allowing users to bookmark information about venues that they want to visit and surfacing relevant suggestions about nearby venues. Merchants and brands leverage the Foursquare platform by utilizing a wide set of tools to obtain, engage, and retain customers and audiences.

Who is planning this meet up?

4sqHK. We’re a bunch of Foursquare users who share, inspire and create ideas (sometimes not necessarily related to Foursquare, lol), who enjoys a bit of harmless fun every now and then. 4sqHK is strictly for fun and non-profit-making. Foursquare doesn’t employ us; we simply embrace and appreciate the strength and spirit of social media.

What is W52?

W52, at W Place on Wyndham Street, is the new dining destination du jour, with a pure philosophy that is distilled in two words – Simply Italian.

The menu draws on the myriad regional cuisines of the entire country, although the emphasis rests on using the freshest ingredients in season and in keeping presentation mouth-watering but not elaborate.  What the eye sees, the taste buds instantly will want to savor. The quintessential accompaniment to any fine meal, good wine, also merits close attention with a range of Italian wines as well as other new and old world choices.  This tour of Italy in one venue aims to reward discovery, time and again.
