“The EventPilot meeting app has been successful at our other conferences so we are now offering it for our chapter leaders as a true conference resource.” said Cami Best-Jones of ASTD. “It’s easy to navigate, supports networking, and the conference app is loaded with tools for sharing and retaining information, such as note-taking and in-app report-building.”

EventPilot meeting apps are meticulously designed to allow for the best experience for attendees and organizers alike. The mobile conference app offers organizers a plethora of options, from revenue generating app sponsorships to last minute alerts and updating changes to the conference program. The smart programming behind EventPilot ensures a continuous conference app experience even when Wi-Fi access is limited or not available at the event.

“We all aim to reduce our carbon footprint. We recognize that cutting the use of paper at events requires a dependable app that can be used to both access and collect information,” states Eric Converse, CTO of ATIV Software. “To this end, ALC’s chapter leaders are connecting using cutting-edge contact-sharing and building conference reports to take back to their chapters with in-app note-taking functionality with the security of knowing the app will work despite potential interferences, such as WiFi connectivity.”
