“Our attendees loved using the EventPilot conference app last year and we are thrilled to offer the latest version with new features and show the power of native meeting apps,” said Chad Borenz, Digital Marketing Manager of Event Solutions, a UBM company. “As a growing tradeshow, it is important to us to offer the best of breed technology to our attendees that is easy to use and does not rely on Wi-Fi access.”
EventPilot is built natively for iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets and thereby overcomes the limitations of HTML5-based apps. With EventPilot, conference goers have instant access to the large amount of the latest event information ranging from sessions and PowerPoint slides with note taking to exhibitor brochures and the current Twitter feed. The intuitive and highly visual design as well as custom branding create an integrated event experience that extends beyond the venue itself.
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.
“EventPilot is designed to enhance the attendee experience and instantly provide the event information when it is needed - without requiring slow downloads or Internet access at all,” said Silke Fleischer, CEO and co-founder of ATIV Software. “Event professionals attending ‘Idea Factory’ will be able to find out first hand what’s possible to create an excellent mobile app experience.”
