ATIV’s Scientific Meeting App EventPilot Introduces Peer Finder for Professional Networking at Large Events

Thousands of researchers, scientists, and healthcare professionals can easily connect privately based on areas of expertise

Santa Rosa, Calif. – February 25, 2016 ATIV Software today announced Peer Finder, a new add-on module to EventPilot, the only event app designed specifically for large medical meetings, scientific congresses, and technical conferences. Peer Finder is a professional networking solution that helps conference attendees connect with each other based on areas of expertise or other shared interests. Professional associations can also use Peer Finder as a standalone app to support year-round member networking. Learn more at

“Peer Finder addresses one of the main reasons people go to events: networking,” said Silke Fleischer, CEO and Co-Founder of ATIV Software. “The EventPilot conference app makes it easy to find and connect with other professionals without ever revealing personal contact information.”

Peer Finder allows logged-in users to see who is attending the meeting. The list is pre-populated with professional background information collected during registration. This ensures the best user experience as attendee profiles, such as specialization or interests, are immediately available when attendees install the event app. Depending on the event organizer’s configuration, the Peer Finder networking feature can be limited to only registered professionals. With native access, app users browse the list at any time, with or without Wi-Fi, and even write and read messages offline. Users can now easily find peers from their country, specific organizations, areas of expertise, specialized research fields, and more. Filters and search options result in personalized networking lists with easy in-app chat to connect and plan in-person meetings.

Peer Finder Features

Professional Networking at Events Based on Expertise or Shared Backgrounds
Easily find peers based on their area of expertise or connect with other researchers from your own country. Private one-on-one messaging keeps email addresses private.

Control Attendee List Access
Permit only logged-in users to view the attendee list and initiate conversations via the event app. Exhibitors and vendors may still use the meeting app to view the event program but will not be able to view the list of attendees.

Engage with Speakers and Authors
Peer Finder enables direct communication with speakers and authors. This is critical for scientific meetings where short poster presentations require an alternative way to contact presenters for follow-up questions.
