ATIV’s EventPilot provides WPC 2013 attendees an educational resource and reference tool with a mobile event app

World Parkinson Congress (WPC) releases the sophisticated EventPilot conference app to offer attendees an interactive and educational experience with convenient access to nearly 900 scientific abstracts, posters, and presentations

Santa Rosa, Calif. – September 24, 2013 World Parkinson Congress (WPC) released its mobile conference program today in the EventPilot meeting app platform by ATIV Software. The dynamic event app for iOS, Android, and other devices, provides a mobile program guide that organizes over a thousand sessions and related scientific presentation materials. Attendees can easily search and access scientific abstracts, posters, and presentations offline to take-notes and stay organized.

“With the EventPilot meeting app, our attendees have instant access to all educational materials to reference during sessions and long after the event is over,” said Derek MacMillan, Conference & Event Sales Coordinator of JPdL, producers of the World Parkinson Congress (WPC) 2013 Conference App. “One of the main features we’re most excited about is the note-taking ability on the PowerPoint presentations within the app. This will keep attendees focused on the presenter and engaged during presentations.”

The EventPilot mobile meeting is specifically designed for medical and scientific conferences. The conference app is a robust tool for attendees to stay informed and organized while attending the medical meeting. The advanced search functionality and intuitive organization of the information assists attendees in finding specific research topics quickly and without relying on Wi-Fi. Attendees can take notes, star, or share these details or send a summary of all notes taken within the app. The color-coded tracks, pre-filtered timeblocks, and search make it easy to find and schedule desired sessions. Compatible devices include: iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android Phones, Tablets, and Kindle Fire. All other devices are supported via a web version of the app.

Features of the EventPilot mobile conference app also include:

Integrated Note Taking on Slides to Stay Organized

Attendees take notes directly on a specific presentation slide and in context of the scientific session. The original PowerPoint files are not distributed to attendees, thereby protecting the presenter’s IP.

Offline Searchable Medical Abstracts, Lecture Handouts, ePosters and Presentations

The EventPilot conference app includes instant access to hundreds of searchable medical abstracts, lecture handouts, and presentations from session detail views.

Native Mobile Event App with True Offline Functionality

Wi-Fi is not required when using EventPilot. The reliable conference app ensures best performance, network independence, and device specific navigation users need at large scientific meetings.


The free iPhone and iPad conference apps are available now in the App Store by searching for “World Parkinson Congress 2013”. The free Android event app is available in Google Play by searching for “World Parkinson Congress 2013”. A browser version for web-enabled devices is available.
