Event apps aren’t just useful for conference and event hours. They can also be used to show attendees around the host town, giving your attendees a chance to explore the city and make the most of their travels. Providing information on the local amenities is a great way to help show your attendees around the city and give them some pointers on how to maximize their stay. We have developed some tips to maximize your local amenities listed in your mobile event app.
In our experience, you will get the best advice working with your local CVB for listings that are attractive to travelers, as they typically have these handy and ready for distribution. Here is a quick list of ideas to include in your mobile event app:
- Comedy clubs
- Theme parks
- Tour companies
- Water parks
- Local fairs
- Local farmers markets
- Water/sports equipment rental
- Taxi cab and transportation info
Local sites and attractions aren’t just limited to a list. The amenities can be mapped and linked inside the app to help attendees explore the city and navigate their way around. Addresses, phone numbers, and a brief description can be added to give helpful hints and tricks such as happy hours. Mobile event app users will appreciate the ease of use and integration into their travel plans.
