Meeting planners for medical conferences or scientific events can now include indoor positioning in the EventPilot Conference App to make large poster or exhibit halls easier to navigate
Santa Rosa, Calif. – August 17, 2015 ATIV Software today launched indoor positioning for its EventPilot conference app, the leading event app for large medical meetings and scientific conferences. Indoor positioning displays the current location of the mobile meeting app user directly on the large expo or complex poster hall floor plans. Learn more at http://ativ.me/geo.
“We are excited to offer associations an easy-to-implement solution for indoor positioning,” said Silke Fleischer, Co-Founder and CEO of ATIV Software. “Today’s smartphones and location-based indoor technologies enable us, as conference app vendors, to help attendees easily find their own location within massive event floor plans.”
The EventPilot conference app is used at the largest medical meetings and scientific events in the US where hundreds of vendors exhibit and thousands of research posters are displayed each day. Meeting professionals face the problem of GPS being unavailable indoors and different expo setups at each single meeting or geo-location changes from one event to another. The EventPilot conference app uses iBeacon technology to enable indoor positioning and provide the flexibility needed for the changing event needs. The conference app pinpoints the attendee’s location on custom geo-mapped floor plans of the vast poster or expo halls inside the conference centers.
Features of the EventPilot Indoor Positioning Module Include:
Custom Geo-Mapping for each event
Each event is unique and each floor plan is marked with sustainable reusable beacons specific for the particular event.
Revenue Generation with Geo-Location
In addition to positioning, the beacons can be used for select premium sponsors to display location-aware notifications to attendees’ devices.
The module is available immediately with additional service options for iBeacon placement. Features may vary on different operating systems.
