Say hello to Hailo: #SMWLDN 2012 Transport Partner

Social Media Week

Social Media Week is a leading news platform and worldwide conference that curates and shares the best ideas and insights into social media and technology's impact on business, society, and culture.

Ever flagged down (or seen) one of these groovy, black and yellow, bumble-bee looking cabs driving around London? They are Hailo cabs – our most recent addition to our fantastic lineup of Social Media Week London 2012 Partners.

We are happy to announce that Hailo is joining us as SMWLDN 2012 Transport Partner.

Chris McLellan, Social Marketing & Community Manager at Hailo commented about the new partnership;

“Like so many of our fellow start-ups, Hailo is fully-committed to both the philosophy and practical integration of social media in our product, marketing and customer services. Building engaged, empathetic and loyal communities of taxi drivers and customers is at the core of the Hailo experience in London and Dublin.

With additional Hailo launches in New York, Chicago, Toronto and Boston just around the corner, we are also in a position to create a truly international community around innovations in personal transport, a very real-life issue. For us, there’s no better place to share learnings and ideas than Social Media Week, the event that is quickly becoming the final word on word-of-mouth.”
