The sixth edition of the National Gala for Gehandicaptensport

The sixth edition of the National Gala for Gehandicaptensport (people with disabilities in sports) was held on November 8, 2012 in the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam. The main goal of this edition was to facilitate a special auction that would raise money for the Fund. To guarantee the membership and participation of people with disabilities in sports during the following years, Christie's auctioned a large number of exclusive (sports) items. Thanks to the innovative use of tablets with a customized app for bidding, the funds raised were considerably higher than expected, with a result of almost 300,000 euros.

The auction welcomed 500 guests who had access to 150 ready-made tablets. The tablets were customised for multi-user login so that everyone could place their personal bids online in a safe and quick environment. With the help of the auction and event-support app guests could place their bids on items either individually or per table. The whole setup included a live auction, a silent auction where people could bid online and also an online shop with sports-related products ready to be ordered with the help of the app. The completely interactive nature of the auction met the high expectations for this event. As a result, the presenter Toine Peperstraten could announce a successful funds raising with a nice final amount at the end of the evening.

The interactive app also had a positive, beneficial effect on the whole atmosphere of the auction. All guests were photographed upon entry, after which they could immediately see their portrait on the tablet. The seating arrangements were also featured on the app, along with the program of the evening, an attractive e-zine and multiple possibilities to connect to other guests during the evening.

The interactive app that boosted the success of the Fonds Gehandicaptensport Gala was developed in full cooperation between Fonds Gehandicaptensport, The Saints (Native App Development) and Total Active Media (concept, design, project management and web-development).

This is how we challenged the ambition of Fonds Gehandicaptensport:

  • More donations than expected whilst the trend was downwards
  • Designed and developed within a month
  • Inspiring novelty that was remembered by guests
  • Best rated feature of the 2012 Gala

7e Gala en online veiling wederom groot succes

Op de middenstip van het Olympisch Stadion vond op 31 oktober voor de 7e keer het Nationaal Gala voor de Gehandicaptensport plaats. Met een mooi programma werd een kijkje in de keuken gegeven van de gehandicaptensport. Achter de schermen was het team van Total Active Media actief om de online veiling – via 150 iPads – in goede banen te leiden. We feliciteren onze partner van harte met de opbrengst. Directeur Nike Boor ontving een cheque van € 279.925. 

"Geweldig dat we samen, vanuit maatschappelijke betrokkenheid, mogelijk maken dat mensen met een handicap kunnen sporten.”
