Mo Parikh

CEO - Bandwango

Mo is the CEO of Bandwango, a Salt Lake City-based company serving the DMO & CVB industry. Bandwango uses a Destination Experience Engine focused on improving the visitor and local experience through the creation of curated experiences delivered via mobile web applications - no apps to download. Recent examples of curated experiences include attractions passes, golf passports, show your badge programs, ale trails, wine tasting passports, and local savings programs. Mo founded Bandwango because he saw an opportunity to better serve the needs of the mobile customer looking for things to do in destinations. Prior to founding Bandwango, Mo worked in a variety of positions, including systems engineer, software architect, and most recently at the University of Utah - where he was working on a PhD in Bioengineering.
