eligible to exclusive guest list invites and will even receive taxi
directions right on their cell phone. This service is free to WaaKao

and events they are interested in at any time and also allows them to
unsubscribe if they do not wish to receive future notifications.

notification, email marketing and advertisements on In order
to protect the privacy of subscriber data, information will not be shared

the fly”, said Oliver Marley, WaaKao Director. “Now we can offer last
minute invitations and exclusive promotions. Subscribers will also receive

weekend plans spontaneously and away from their computers. With this SMS
