Event App Best Practice at ExecLN

April 3, 2017

We were delighted to provide the app for the Executive Leaders Network (ExecLN) event in March.

400+ attendees from HR, IT and Marketing departments gathered at the Madejski Football Stadium in Reading for a jam packed day of plenaries, break outs sessions and one-to-one meetings.

Introducing the Event App

We started the day by introducing the app live on stage. As we always recommend to clients, we highlighted the features that were going to be most valuable to the attendees during the event. At this event personalised schedules, private in app attendee to attendee messaging and live audience polling were key.

App Concierge

As we were exhibiting at the event we provided an app concierge service at our stand. An app concierge is great service to offer and it can usually be easily located alongside, or as part of, the event registration desk.

Live Polling and Q&A

There’s no better way to highlight live polling than running a warm-up question. Some clients chose a topical or fun question to break the ice. In this case time was limited so we got straight into the content of the day and ran a live poll to survey the audience on what was driving their businesses to transform.

The Brexit panel discussion which concluded the day also included some interesting polls.

Q&A as always went down a treat. Speakers in each room tracked comments and questions via iPads. Attendees could also see the questions submitted. The vote-up feature meant the short amount of time available could be spent answering the most relevant questions.

We had great feedback on the app and we look forward to working with the team on the next event.
