Foursquare and Time partnering for 2012 Republican National Convention

in Uncategorized by

TIME and Foursquare will partner exclusively for the 2012 political conventions. By following TIME on Foursquare, attendees of the Republican National Convention in Tampa on Aug. 27-30 will be able to unlock the unique TIME-Foursquare badges upon check-in at the conventions and surrounding events. Attendees will have access to a curated list of must-attend venues and events, as well as convention tips from TIME’s expert political reporting team.

In addition, TIME.com will broadcast updates from reporters, newsmakers and VIPs as they check-in on Foursquare as well as a visualization of convention activity, so political junkies not attending the conventions can stay current on all the on-the-ground action.
