FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pittcon, global conference for laboratory science, launches intuitive EventPilot mobile event app
With over 2,000 technical presentations and nearly 900 exhibitors, EventPilot provides an easy way for attendees to plan the personal event schedules and quickly navigate Pittcon 2012
“Our conference program is extremely complex with more than 2,000 technical presentations, 100 plus Short Courses, Conferee Networking Sessions, and nearly 900 exhibitors. We needed a mobile event app that meets our requirements while providing our attendees a practical, fast, and convenient way to build an agenda and to connect with the latest Pittcon information.” said Pittcon’s Senior Marketing & Communications Specialist, Marian Nardozzi. “EventPilot was the best conference app we found since its design is very intuitive even for complex programs like ours. It’s extremely fast to use despite our massive data sets, and as an added feature, the app runs offline.”
The EventPilot mobile conference app is designed as a Swiss Army Knife for meeting goers. The many interactive features provide the attending scientists instant access to necessary information in a convenient format. The ability to brand and include advertisements enables Pittcon to offer attractive new sponsorship opportunities such as the inclusion of company brochures in exhibitor listings.
With Pittcon, the launch of the new EventPilot version 5.0 is a milestone for scientific meeting apps serving large conferences with sophisticated educational programs.
The EventPilot mobile conference app features include:
Intuitive navigation of extensive conference programs
Color-coded categories and schedules as well as built-in smart filters help trim vast scientific meeting programs to manageable lists of choices that are relevant to the specific interests of the attendee. Poster presentations are neatly organized within sessions as individual sub-sessions. Like normal sessions, sub-sessions are fully interactive with their own respective speakers, abstracts, PowerPoint presentations, evaluation links, etc. and the ability to take notes, star rate, or add to the schedule.
Native Mobile Event App with True Offline Functionality
Native Android and Android tablet conference app, iPhone conference app and iPad conference app to ensure best performance, network independence, and device specific navigation users expect.
Sharing and Networking
The Facebook and LinkedIn integration enables attendees to share interesting sessions with their peers and extend the reach for presenters and event organizers. Unique presentation slide tweeting to share key insights with others and integration of Twitter technology to allow easy networking.
Real-Time Updates and Reminders
Attendees receive just-in-time notifications about their scheduled sessions, program changes, and Twitter updates without ever leaving the first screen. Organizers push content updates or program changes live in real time.
Rich Experience and Paperless Events
EventPilot Plus supports paperless events by integrating PowerPoint slides, PDFs, handouts, scientific or medical abstracts, surveys, live polls, YouTube videos, note taking, and more to create a valuable reference app that is used by attendees long after the event.
“Instead of digging through heavy paper brochures or getting frustrated with slow content access, the EventPilot Pittcon event app is designed with the needs of the conference goer in mind,” said Eric Converse, CTO, ATIV Software. ”Pittcon offers its conference and expo attendees an exceptional educational experience and with the EventPilot conference app, the organization is helping them make the most out of it.”
