PRLog - Jan. 25, 2013 - ATIV Software has been selected by the Green Meetings Industry Council (GMIC) to provide the mobile app for this year’s conference using the sophisticated EventPilot platform. For the first time, GMIC attendees will be able to access the educational presentation slides during sessions to take notes directly on slides within the app. This unique feature helps increase retention and eliminates the need for printed handouts.

“The conference attendees look at this event as the leader in producing sustainable events,” said Greg Andrade, Director of Operations at Signal Event Group, who managed the vendor selection process for GMIC. ”We need to demonstrate the best when it comes to advancing sustainability in the meetings industry. EventPilot is an ideal technological solution to maximize attendee engagement while minimizing the conference footprint.”
Unlike event apps that are built around HTML 5, EventPilot is a truly native app that can take advantage of the power of today’s smartphones and offline capabilities. The PowerPoint slide viewer displays presentation handouts in context of the session without requiring Internet access. It allows attendees to take notes on slides, bookmark slides, and tweet slides. The app automatically organizes all conference notes into a comprehensive email report with slide thumbnails for later reference.
“EventPilot is designed not just as a digital conference program but as a productivity and learning tool,” said Silke Fleischer, CEO and co-founder of ATIV Software. “The powerful combination of offline access, personalization, and native navigation will give GMIC attendees a truly sustainable experience.”
Features of the EventPilot mobile conference app also include:
Offline Note Taking on Slides to Stay Organized
Attendees take notes directly within the app in context of presentations, sessions, speakers, or exhibitors. The original PowerPoint files are not distributed to attendees, thereby protecting the presenter’s IP.
Powerful Personal Scheduling Features
Enable attendees to easily fill their day by adding sessions to their visual schedule, see open time slots, or add personal meetings with exhibitors.
Native Mobile Event App with True Offline Functionality
Native iPhone, iPad, and Android conference app ensures best performance, network independence, and device specific navigation users expect.
The free iPhone and iPad conference apps will be made available in February.
The Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC) is the premier global community solely dedicated to sustainability in the meetings and events industry, not only through education but also by spearheading research, policy and standards.
