Who Was That Presenter?

Who Was That Presenter?

One of the great things attendees love about going to an event is discovering new presenters.  At a large event, though, figuring out who was the third person on the panel right after lunch on Friday (or Thursday?), can be a hit or miss proposition at best.  Add in last-minute substitutions and additions, and it can become very difficult for attendees to identify individual presenters. The chance of finding out who the presenter they had wanted to follow up on becomes close to an impossibility if all they have to go on is a paper program, even one printed as recently as the week before the event.

Event apps change this entire scenario for your attendees. Instead of hunting for a lost or mangled printed program, or trying to figure out what they wrote in their notes, your attendees can quickly check their personal calendar schedule and find when they attended that panel presentation. From there, it becomes a quick click to the in-app page on that panel, where they’ll find everything they want to know about this presenter. Your event app is updated as soon as a substitution happens, your attendees will have the most current information listed on every presenter*. Even those last minute substitutions. That gives your event more value to everyone.
