Is there a way that event organizers can streamline the process? The multifaceted world of creating events requires those in charge to juggle many balls. They must tackle registration and all the pitfalls that go with it. How about the printing obstacles for badges and costly print media? It’s a challenge without an effective management strategy in place, and that usually means the right technology.
Your goal is to provide attendees with as much information as possible because that’s what drives forward momentum in an expo or trade show. It moves traffic to the next conference, the right meeting, informational seminars and engaging panels. Data is what measures the success of the different event programs and modules, too. Even just telling everyone who walks in the door where to go for help is a challenge.
Today, event managers are looking for high-tech answers, and that means an event mobile app. The right mobile app allows you to:
- Stay connected to attendees before, during and after the event
- Track sessions and provide exhibitors and sponsors with real-time data
- Share event activities via social media
- Take advantage of push notifications for both regular event programs and in the case of an emergency
- Create interactive opportunities during the event
You need a mobile app, but they are not all created equal. A specially designed event mobile app may cost as much as $10,000. To avoid breaking the budget, you might have to leave out key features like event push notifications, too. Even a basic app can set you back by up to $5,000.
Be sure to read our article Apple to reject non-compliant event Apps from it’s store to assure any white labelled event apps are acceptable by the App Store Review Guidelines.
The One System Approach
Instead of dividing up the various processes that go into designing an event into different systems and paying for an event app, consider how an end-to-end product might be a better solution. When you break apart the different segments like registration and lead retrieval, you end up inputting a lot of redundant data. That’s time-consuming and costly.
