ST. LOUIS, Oct. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UMG Media Corp. (UMG) has launched the first Android and iOS based application directly targeting the esports live and online event industry. The application, called UMG Gaming, is available in both Android and iOS stores and is ready for the first weekend of the live UMG Esports Bash at the Palms Casino Resort events starting in Las Vegas on October 27 - 28, 2017. Attendees will be able to check-in with the app by walking up to a registration kiosk and printing your wristband from a QR code right on their phone. Those with the app can get live bracket updates to ensure as a player or a fan they never miss out on the action during the event.

“We are continually striving to bring better technology and convenience to our community,” explains Dave Antony, CEO of UMG Media Corp. Antony continues, “When we were thinking about our live events and how we could better streamline the check-in process an application directly on attendee phones made perfect sense. We then started to see that the possibilities were endless, what if we could bring you live up-to-date information on event standings, images, and so much more. We went for it and we are thrilled to bring our tech to market in time for the first Palms event in Vegas this weekend.”
