Nowadays, going to a conference or meeting pretty much guarantees you will download a mobile event app beforehand to make sure you are fully connected. Have you considered a mobile app for your event, concert, or festival? Mobile apps are the essential tool for all attendees of any one, two, or 10-day event.
A mobile app is a powerful tool to keep your attendees engaged and help them get the most out of their event. Attendees will download the app before the event to plan their day out and make sure they are prepared. This allows you, the organizer, to gauge interest and begin to build the anticipation of the event.
An effective mobile app will replace most printed collateral. Take paper maps, for instance – everyone will need to know where the restroom is, where to get a beer, or which exit to use to get back to their parking spot. Another amazing feature we have seen is the bulletin board and in-app chatter. It helps create the community within the event – folks can compare notes, rate performers and give real time feedback.
In the event of a venue’s change or an emergency, the administrator can immediately send out a push notification to all attendees advising them of the change. This is especially important in outdoor venues, where weather or exits may be obstructed.
Mobile event apps aren’t just for conferences anymore. We are seeing a huge interest in concerts, fairs and festivals. Attendees and organizers are loving every minute of it.
