While you can already track over 26 dimensions of event analytics directly in the EventPilot conference app, you may want to take a look at Exposure Event Analytics, which captures traffic patterns and displays details in traffic heatmaps for easy visual understanding. The system is set up at the venue directly so you don't have to rely on venue WiFi.
