Tips for Organising a Conference
We are living in a time where technology touches almost every moment in our lives. The convenience of readily available information and the ability to communicate at a second’s notice, really boosts our work place efficiency.
Here’s how you can further incorporate technology into meetings, in the form of a Mobile App’s. We have used our App as an example for this blog. But keep in mind that there are many different types and varieties of App’s available.
Customised to your brand
Meeting App’s (including ours) can be designed around your company identity, using your brand’s colours, images and logo. The App Icon etc. can be customised to your company logo.
The program becomes paperless, ticking the eco-friendly box and saving some more trees!
Attendees are kept up to date with timings, locations and itineraries. We can also notify them of any changes in real time.
Speakers biographies are listed with profile pictures and connected to their LinkedIn accounts. Details of their sessions are provided, as well as the opportunity for attendees to chat directly to Speakers through the App.
Leading up to the conference, attendees can chat with one another in a secure message section of the App. They can also select the various sessions that they would like to attend and save them as a personalised itinerary.
All attendees can log in and create their own profile within the App, this is also connected to their LinkedIn profiles.
Our App allows for audience participation through live polls, Q and A’s, and sharing of conversations through social media platforms. There are elements of fun such as challenges or gamification in the form of a quiz for points, or a competition.
This all leads to higher engagement and more active participation from the attendees. Higher engagement means they are more likely to take away a greater sense of value from your meeting.
Opportunity for sponsorship
The app can provide a revenue stream for conferences, by allowing sponsors to promote their offerings through the Mobile App.
This can be in the form of, push notifications, dedicated sections for content, or banner advertising.
Plus, as they are sponsors of your conference, they are likely to be relevant to the attendees and will provide further engagement and interesting content.
Mobile Apps for meetings are often underutilised. So, why not join the movement towards an engaged digital meeting experience?
