Info Salons Launches iEvent For iPhone
[Thu 18/02/2010 11:12:31]
Info Salons is set to launch a ground-breaking iPhone App designed for the events industry during the AIME 2010 trade event to be held on March 2-3 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibitions Centre.
The event technology, registration and database specialists, are launching iEvent, an App giving delegates, visitors and exhibitors the ability to navigate event schedule details, exhibitor information and access the exhibition floorplan before, during and after the event, from any Apple iPhone® and iPod touch®.
“When iPhone was launched, we realised there was great potential to create an application for it that could place event information at the fingertips of attendees,” said Jo-Anne Kelleway, CEO, Info Salons Group.
“Info Salons then built iEvent, an extraordinarily interactive event portal that allows visitors and exhibitors to maximize their time during an event and make the most of their return on investment.”
The benefits of iEvent go beyond use only during trade shows and public exhibitions, as it offers the opportunity to keep communicating with attendees 365 days a year.
“The iEvent – iPhone App is also a perfect green solution. Attendees are tired of carrying around tons of heavy printed literature during an event.
“The iEvent – iPhone App keeps everything stored electronically in your pocket, and is definitely the way event information will be managed in the future,” said Kelleway.
Some of the features include:
Organising how to best spend time at conferences or trade shows can be tricky. iEvent allows attendees to flag their favourite sessions and exhibitors, and keep them all in a handy listing for reference.
Maps & Exhibitors
Visitors will never be lost again. Each exhibitor listing displays the stand number, contact details and description. A full floorplan map of the event can be displayed on screen, complete with stand numbers to easily find any exhibitor.
Events & Speakers
Session and speaker details, including the session room name, are listed and can be tagged to Add To Your Favourites.
The iEvent – iPhone App integrates seamlessly with Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites to make sure that every event gets comprehensive viral marketing coverage through the social web.
Info Salons will be located at Stand # 0414 at AIME. For those not attending the AIME show and wanting more information contact Jo-Anne Kelleway – email@example.com
