“As the leading industry event for caterers, we want to offer the latest mobile technology and enhance the tradeshow experience for our attendees.” said Chad Borenz, Digital Marketing Manager of Catersource, a UBM company. “The ability to access up to date information offline and easily search through the thousands of exhibitors in just seconds allows our attendees to spend their time actively engaged in all the event activities rather than digging through the paper guides or hunting for wifi.”
EventPilot conference apps bring offline convenience to attendees who can quickly find sessions, speakers or exhibitors of interest, manage their schedule, take notes, and socially engage with other participants. Unlike web-based apps, EventPilot is native to the device, fast for instant access, and not impacted by HTML5 caching and feature limitations.
The EventPilot mobile conference app features include:
Native Mobile Event App with True Offline Functionality
Native Android conference app, iPhone conference app and iPad conference app to ensure best performance, network independence, and device specific navigation users expect.
Animations show attendees where session rooms or vendors are located at the venue. Attendees can find their way at any time since all maps are included directly in the app and do not require Internet access.
Sharing and Networking
The Facebook and LinkedIn integration enables attendees to share interesting sessions with their peers and extend the reach for presenters and event organizers. Unique presentation slide tweeting to share key insights with others and integration of Twitter technology to allow easy networking.
Real-Time Updates and Reminders
Attendees receive just-in-time notifications about their scheduled sessions, program changes, and Twitter updates without ever leaving the first screen.
Rich Experience and Paperless Events
EventPilot Plus supports paperless events by integrating PowerPoint slides, PDFs, handouts, scientific or medical abstracts, surveys, live polls, YouTube videos, note taking, and more to create a valuable reference app that is used by attendees long after the event.
“The event and catering professionals at Catersource can now experience the most cutting edge and beautifully designed native tradeshow app on their mobile devices,” said ATIV CEO, Silke Fleischer. “Our meeting app is developed with the inherent limited Internet access at the majority of conference venues. The EventPilot conference app provides an excellent offline experience so attendees have all the info they need conveniently at their fingertips while organizers can save money and go paperless.”
The free iPhone and iPad conference app is available now in the App Store. The free Android event app is available in the Android market. A web version for BlackBerry and other web- enabled devices is available at http://ep50.eventpilotadmin.com/
