1.  Mobile Conference Apps

Posted 06-01-2017 10:27
Hello All,

ACEC Wisconsin is looking for recommendations on mobile conference app developers. We use the app for a few conferences throughout the year in place of a conference proceedings book.

Any suggestions are appreciated - I'd like a lot of options to pursue/review. Thank you in advance for the help!

We have recently started using "Attendify" or "Guidebook" at our events.

Hello Andrew,

I would be happy to suggest some mobile app providers that you could explore:

  • Core-Apps
  • TripBuilderMedia
  • Doubledutch
  • Guidebook
  • CrowdCompass (a Cvent company)
  • Gather Digital
  • Zerista
  • Showgizmo
Additionally, if you are collecting the materials for your proceedings somewhere, like in an abstract or paper management system, sometimes they offer a mobile app at an additional charge. For example, the company eTouches offers an abstract and presentation management system, as well as a mobile app for an additional charge, and you don't need to worry about integration.
