Here’s a quick quiz. Which option sounds better to you?

     a) You use multiple event apps and vendors to piece together the solutions you need for                  your event, which adds more work to your event management and planning.

     b) You choose a mobile event app that has everything you need in one place, saves you                  time, and helps you create an unforgettable event.

Seems like a no-brainer, right?

Unfortunately, not all mobile apps for conferences are created equal. If you don’t choose the right provider and app, you could add unnecessary challenges to your event planning agenda. Event technology should make your life easier and allow you to leverage the efficiency and convenience of a well-designed event app.

But you shouldn’t worry. There’s an easy way to identify the right app and provider for your event:

Is your event app an all-in-one solution?

Plenty of mobile apps on the market offer valuable features, but certain enhanced features might not be part of the app. Using these incomplete apps, if you want to utilize all the features you need for your event, you must use multiple apps, or even worse, multiple providers. You have to manage more moving parts to get the solution you need for your event.

You need a mobile app for your event that has everything you need in one place. For example, MeetingPlay provides a comprehensive event app featuring:

  • Agenda management
  • Direct messaging
  • Contact sharing
  • Speaker information
  • Venue mapping
  • Push notifications
  • Attendee profiles

These features alone can add value to your event and help you create an unforgettable experience for your users. But what if you want advanced features? Depending on your provider, you may have to use functions outside of the event app or find another provider.

MeetingPlay makes your life easier with our all-in-one event app, which includes advanced features, like:

  • Single sign-on services
  • Custom gamification
  • Live polling
  • Proximity-based networking
  • Attendee tracking

When you can provide your attendees with a unique experience using a single app, it helps everyone save time and avoid unnecessary headaches.

In addition, the MeetingPlay event app can integrate seamlessly with your existing registration technology. You can spend more time with your event and attendees, and less time loading user information into the event app.

What value is your attendee app adding to your event? Is it eliminating or causing headaches? Are all the features you need in a single event app?

These are all questions you should ask before choosing your mobile apps for conferences.
