Event Tech of the Week: The Event App
What is The Event App?
The multi-award-winning event app offers the most comprehensive range of features available to support and drive your event objectives. And as well as pre-event guidance and on-site support, it provides a comprehensive post-event report to help you assess the levels of engagement and measure the success of your event objectives.
What does it do?
The app places networking at the centre of the delegate experience with personalised profiles, instant messaging, contact sharing and the ability to request meetings with others.
A range of features help you engage your audience and generate interest in your event, including pre-event audience polling, discussion forums, twitter feeds, in-session interactivity, social walls and evaluation forms.
Personalised agendas, speaker & exhibitor profiles, document downloads and venue information make it easy for your delegates to stay up-to-date with your event program without any paper or time.
What’s different about it?
The Event App offers unprecedented intelligence using the latest Bluetooth technology to generate a unique indoor positioning system which captures the movement of delegates at your event, performs automatic check-ins and allows delegates to locate themselves and others in real-time. This makes it easy to find someone, check their diary and request/ schedule a meeting and meeting place in one go- networking made easy!

Why it’s our ETOTW…
We think there’s great value in 1.2.1 meetings et events. Whilst some are designed solely around this, you don’t always get the best out of back-to-back meetings. We like the way The Event App allows you to subtly approach potential clients at events. Using a beacon is helpful to locate people at a large events. Of course this is purely in a professional way. Everything can be stored neatly in the app- notes and all. Instead of bits of paper and a lengthly write up you can simply send yourself a summary of all your activity. An easy, efficient way of measuring ROI.
