Viral Agenda retrieves large and disperse streams of cultural data, displaying it in an organized and intuitive way, thus gathering both culture consumers and promoters in one web platform specialized in events. Combining data retrieval with human curatorship, we've built the most complete, up-to-date and organized events guide in Portugal. Departing from a Cultural Cartography approach, we now wish to take our work further by mapping the interactions between cultural agents and audiences in Europe and globally.

For the past 3 years, the Viral platform has been contributing to smarten up Portuguese cities by helping visitors and citizens to easily acknowledge what is happening in their cities concerning culture and entertainment, and by helping promoters communicate their upcoming events more effectively.

Viral Agenda retrieves large and disperse streams of cultural data, displaying it in an organized and intuitive way, thus gathering both culture consumers and promoters in one web platform specialized in events. Combining data retrieval with human curatorship, we've built the most complete, up-to-date and organized events guide in Portugal. Departing from a Cultural Cartography approach, we now wish to take our work further by mapping the interactions between cultural agents and audiences in Europe and globally.

For the past 3 years, the Viral platform has been contributing to smarten up Portuguese cities by helping visitors and citizens to easily acknowledge what is happening in their cities concerning culture and entertainment, and by helping promoters communicate their upcoming events more effectively.

Besides detailed information about events and event promoting organisations, which are searchable through filters (district, type of event, date…) and by its own search engine, Viral Agenda also hosts a collaborative publishing area, a featured events area, metadata and multimedia integration, interactive maps, a tag-based navigation system, a widget that allows event promoters to embed any event list in any website or blog as easily they would with a YouTube video. We have also built together with a custom advertising system that can be scaled or integrated in any context or geography.

Viral Agenda was built taking scalability into deep account, and is thus infinitely replicable: implemented in Lisbon and Porto in a first stage, the outbreak spread to all the cities of Portugal and is now ready to help smarten up the world's main destinations. New technologies like FIWARE or public API's are allowing us to take this virtual organism to the next level, through the integration of capital upgrades such as context aware interaction, crowdsourcing, recommendations based on profile and a a reward / billing system.

By providing detailed, organised and real time information about cultural activities in European and American cities, Viral can represent a great asset to both citizens and visitors. The targeting capabilities will also empower event promoters with innovative tools to communicate with target audiences. Finally, the development of data analysis and visualization instruments could provide the cities’ institutions with invaluable insights about the complex network of interactions amongst cultural agents and between these and their audiences.

Viral Agenda is an invaluable resource and a great addition to the entertainment and event offers information and recommendation area. A simple, brilliant and very efficient UI hides the complexities of what is a very robust engine servicing the platform. I am sure we will be seeing much more from the Viral Agenda team, and I for one am jeeping a close eye on their work. Very well done Viral agenda!
