This means no more frantically printing off your ticket the night before. Also, the virtual badges inclusion in event apps allows for easy networking with the ability to simply scan a delegate’s app to receive their contact information, social profiles and more.
With tickets, networking cards, maps and more all available on demand in the app, event apps are also a fantastic way for conference organisers to do their part for the environment.
They can drastically cut down on the need for paper and card, helping to make events more sustainable. Plus, research from Guidebook found that 88% of event professionals agreed the use of event apps improved attendee engagement.
Speaking of improving attendee engagement, new conference technology is constantly being trialled and tested to encourage delegates’ involvement and participation. Conference speakers, for example, are utilising technology to move away from the traditional PowerPoint approach and instead use gamification technology to help make attendees part of the conversation.
