Looking for a way to create a GPS-triggered audio tour in Hanoi in 2013, eventually resulted in the creation of a platform now used the world over for providing immersive, location-based, auditive experiences.

We’re expanding our bi-weekly cafés with individual interviews on Twitter Spaces.

In this first instalment, we talk with Josh Kopeček, founder of Echoes, a leading platform for creating location-based soundwalks as immersive experiences using cutting edge technologies.

We’ll discuss Echoes’ origins in Vietnam, Josh’s journey, now based in Devon, in the creation and managing of his platform, and we will highlight some of the walks available on Echoes, as well as some of the custom experiences Echoes Labs has created over the last few years.

Participation in this event is free and will be hosted through Twitter Spaces. You can sign up, here, and we will send you a notification shortly before the event, or simply join us at the link below.
