CALGARY, April 16, 2013 /CNW/ - The International Association of Business Communicators Calgary Chapter (IABC/Calgary) is excited to be hosting special guest speaker Rae Mapey, creator of the Simply Declare Travel application at the University of Calgary Downtown Campus on April 30, 2013.
Rae Mapey's exclusive Skype presentation will cover how she took Simply Declare from an idea to one of the best new travel apps in just ten months. She will describe the trails and tribulations of learning how to digitally market an app in an extremely cluttered market place while on a limited budget and let you in on the ups and the downs of developing an app to get it ready for the AppStore.
About Rae Mapey and Simply Declare
Rae Mapey from Campbell River, BC, is a bookkeeper by trade with a background in computers. She currently works for a compounding pharmacy on Vancouver Island, a job that she does remotely from Phoenix six months of the year. As a snowbird, and with a sister who is an avid traveller, she noticed there was no app on the market to track declarable duty free purchases or to help organize everything for customs.
Simply Declare Travel app is an iOS app which allows you to add, update and manage your declarable travel purchases. Incredible for the savvy traveler, with just a few taps you are able to set a total amount, add new items from your trip and have a bird's eye view of all of your declarable purchases. You never have to be caught by the question "what do you have to declare?" ever again. The app has been recognized by SMARTMONEY, pcworld.com and CNN's Money as one of the best new travel apps.
