The New and Improved Road to California App

Saturday, January 13th, 2018

For Road 2018, QuiltSpace offers many helpful features. From anywhere on the App, users can swipe left to explore the show schedule and create their own custom schedule to make sure they don’t miss any important classes or events. Under the tab Who’s Here on the Home Page of the App, guests can see who else is using the App as well as browse through the vendor list. Built-in maps to locate vendor and class locations can be found when clicking on a particular vendor or teacher’s class. The + tab allows users to share photos to the news feed, providing a digital yearbook of the show’s greatest moments and memories. How do you find QuiltSpace to use on your portable electronic device? Search for “QuiltSpace” in Apple’s App Store or on Android’s Google Play. Or you can use the developer’s safe and easy download link: https://n463d.app.goo.gl/rRRY Whatever way you choose, the App is FREE!!! After the App is downloaded to your phone or tablet, sign up for QuiltSpace using your email address and click on Road to California. Once you’re in, you can access the show schedule, explore vendors, and share photos to the exclusive Road to California news feed. It’s that easy! Because Road to California was the first quilt show the developers ever attended, it has a special place in their heart.  As a result, they’re bringing their entire team to Road 2018 to assist guests in navigating the new App.  You can find them at the QuiltSpace booth or email them at team@quiltspace.co with your questions.  The developers are confident they are providing Road’s guests with a great tool to help enjoy the show even more. As an incentive to encourage use of the App, they are offering 2 competitions for users to participate in that offer cash prizes:

Most Engaged User

Each day, Thursday – Saturday, the most engaged attendee on the App will be rewarded with $100 CASH! Announcements will be given each morning on QuiltSpace for details on what the challenge is for that day.

Quilter’s Choice Award

Pictures of the more than 200 quilts accepted for this year’s quilt contest will be added to the App when the show starts. Users will be asked to vote for their favorite winning quilt.  On Saturday, January 20th, the quilt with the most votes will be unveiled and will receive a $500 grand prize! Use of the QuiltSpace App doesn’t stop when Road 2018 comes to an end on January 21st. It will continue to be a resource for staying in touch with vendors, faculty, and other guests through picture sharing and online chats. And because QuiltSpace was created to be a welcoming space for quilters to engage with each other from one show to the next, look for other shows to be added to the App in the future. While Road to California hopes its guests find QuiltSpace a welcomed tool for fully participating with the show, we also realize that some guests might still prefer a printed Show Guide. For that reason, a limited supply of Show Guides will be available at Road 2018 for $3.00. Guests can also download a copy for their use at http://www.road2ca.com/Newsletter/2018%20SHOW%20GUIDE.pdf See you online at QuiltSpace!!]]>

There’s A New App In Town: Road To California

Monday, January 18th, 2016

Road to California App.Road App 3 Since May 2015, we have been working on this new application. Says Matt Reese, Show Manager, “The Road to California App is bringing our show in to the future. Using the app provides reliability knowing we can share the most current information about the show in real time.” Another benefit of the app: it supports Road to California’s efforts in sustaining a green environment.  The app is replacing the Show Book, reducing the huge amount of paper used to publish the books.

What are some of the app features?

  • A map to help guests locate everything at the show: Classes, Vendors, Special Exhibits, and even food
  • A personal schedule so guests can plan out what to see and do, including the $5 Lectures.
  • A listing of Exhibitors so guests can locate them on the showroom floor. Guests can keep track of the products they are interested in, and have the exhibitors’ contact information for after the show.
  • A listing of Teachers, their classes, and their contact information.
  • A listing of Sponsors.
  • Information about the Daily Drawings.
  • Menus for each of the food buffets served each day.Road App4
In addition, guests can join in the fun sharing their pictures, comments, reviews and ratings of the show with other guests. Users can even earn badges for their participation with the app!!

How do you get started?

To get the free app, for Apple users, go to the App Store and search for Road to California. Google users need to go to the Play Store and search for RoadToCalifornia (all one word).  It’s best to download the app before you come to the show so that you can become familiar with its features.Road App 2

What if I don’t have a smart device? Or I forget to bring my smart device?

No worries. There will be two iPad stations in the Convention Center (each having five iPads running the app) available for guests to use. Road Staff will be on hand to answer questions and  guide guests with their app questions. And for those guests who just can’t manage the app this year, there will be a small number of traditional Show Books available. The Road to California App allows guests to customize their Road 2016 experience and keep their information long after the show has ended. Carolyn Reese, show owner, is thrilled to offer this new addition. “We are excited to provide better and more information to our guests using the app than we ever could with a show book.” What feature are you looking forward to using on the Road to California App?  ]]>
