Do you attend various events on a regular basis? If you do, what is the biggest change you have noticed over time? I personally feel, the implementation of mobile event apps. This surely is a technological advancement that has over taken any other technological innovation in the past. Event applications, with ever-increasing features and innovations, are rendering more and more benefits to exhibitors, venue organizers, event managers, and of course the attendees and delegates.
Events were highly dependent on papers for a long time, for all the information that needed to be conveyed to attendees and other participants of an event. The initial concept of the mobile applications was, all the information that was on the papers was transferred to the applications, and implemented in a way that information could be conveyed to participants. However, now the implementation and usage of applications have revolutionized the event industry in the past couple of years. It is no more only about transferring information but a lot more than that. Attendees and delegates now actively participate in meetings and conferences with these applications. They go social, post updates, build new contacts all via the app and during the events. The mobile platform still has loads to offer in terms of engagement and other innovative usages.
