In today’s age of technology and interactivity it is not only possible, but expected of event providers to enhance the in person experience with a wide array of complimenting information. This is especially important for those attending highly populated or large event venues like conferences or conventions where it is easy to lose your way in the sea of participants and exhibitors. Many of these mobile event apps also provide a great channel to socialize with fellow attendees and make some new friends. Here are three examples of conferences that have awesome mobile event apps, and some information on how they might be helpful to an attendee.
This app provides event attendees with a wide array of important information including maps, event schedules, a list of speakers, keynotes, a photo gallery, hotel and travel information, a “Locate Me” feature, an exhibitors section, a friends section, as well as a “My Schedule” section for tracking the attendee’s schedule and the different panels they are interested in attending.
While not as robust a some of the other conference apps out there, this app still gives the conference attendee a lot of valuable information at their fingertips. Users of this app can expect to see a clean well laid out format providing a venue map, an event schedule, a list of guests, as well as a fun spin on the personal event calendar called “My Conquest”.
