EventPilot meeting app with PowerPoint slide-based note taking receives an honorable mention as the runner-up to event video platform

Santa Rosa, Calif. – October 16, 2012 – The EventPilot conference app receives an honorable mention as the first runner-up in the EIBTM Technology Watch Award for the meetings and events industry. EventPilot increases session material retention and enables true paperless events by providing attendees with presentation slides that include note taking capability offline.

EventPilot is a native mobile conference app for iOS/Android phones and tablets, as well as web-enabled devices. The event app has made it possible for attendees to focus on the presenter’s message and simply follow along the presentation with a specially designed mobile PowerPoint slide viewer. Offline full color slide access ensures a great experience independent from the venue Wi-Fi. Attendees easily take notes on individual slides or bookmark important slides. At the same time, attendees do not receive the actual .PPT file which protects the work and concern of presenters.

“It is a great achievement to see our sophisticated event app technology recognized by industry professionals” said Silke Fleischer, CEO and co-founder of ATIV Software. “EventPilot stands out among conference apps because it is designed from an attendee perspective to provide just the right information at just the right time. Our meeting app acts as Swiss Army Knife that helps attendees stay organized and effective so they can focus their limited time on what’s most important – learning and networking at the event.”
