The amount of information an event or conference attendee engages with pre-event, during the event, and after the event, is, as you know, a lot. From maps, networking, agendas, speaker bios, networking with fellow attendees, and so much more! In addition to providing an all in one app that serves as an information resource. Here are 5 more reasons your event needs a mobile app!
1.) Pre-Event engagement
Mobile event apps aren’t just for during the actual event. Engage with your conference audience even before they set foot at your next event! Your mobile event app can gather attendee information, let them view and sign up for different seminars, network with other attendees, get updated outlines and news, etc. Mobile event app’s encourages a conversation before the first face to face occurrence.
2.) Last Minute Change? No problem.
Mobile event app’s can be changed instantaneously. Whether the speaker is going to be 10 minutes late and you need to send out a push notification to attendees or if you’re 2 days before the event and a line change has to take place; there’s no costly (or timely) worry, just update your app!
3.) Track Analytics
How many network connections were built? What were attendee’s interests? Having a mobile event app at your next event allows you to know exactly what and how attendees engaged with your event (and your app!)
4.) Save a tree. Use an App.
Save money (and trees!) by eliminating the need for as much print outs; share your conference agenda on your app. Showcase sponsors on your app. Have a map, on your app. The list goes on. Not only will your attendees engage more (no more forgetting your agenda in the hotel room), but the trees (THE TREES!) will thank you!
5.) Stand out from the Rest
Showcase your conferences uniqueness and innovation by having an event app. Trail ahead before your competition, by showcasing your technology, including a personalized, branded event app.
Whether sending an email update to the boss, checking social media sites, uploading a photo, or just taking notes, odds are, your attendees are going to be on their phones while at your next event or conference. Having a mobile event app at your event or conference engages with your attendees where they are, instead of distracting them from where they aren’t.
