Congrex, the leading international management company, offering comprehensive services for meetings, events and conferences, has introduced an iPhone app to ensure the success of its upcoming EAACI annual Congress in London this week.
European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI), the association of clinicians, researchers and allied health professionals dedicated to improving the health of people affected by allergic diseases, will be the first Congrex client to experience this new addition to its Congress portfolio.
The EAACI 2010 app, created by Propeller Mobile, is available on Apple’s app store and is created for the 29th European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology Congress, which is held in London 5-9 June.
The app will act as a networking and navigating tool, helping the 8,000 delegates make the most of the event, but will also provide Congrex with insightful data to help shape future Congresses.
Once downloaded, delegates can navigate their way through the Congress using an interactive map, view event details and times, receive reminders of key events, and interact with speakers by sending instant messages - the application functions as a pop-up social network for niche audiences to communicate with each other.
Delegates can also create their own digital profiles on the app, promoting themselves to other delegates and vendors. Other useful benefits include hotel and travel information – offering delegates a seamless Congress experience.
Dr Layth Bunni, CEO Congrex said; “We are excited to be taking this digital step forward, and believe mobile apps will offer a truly enhanced conference experience for our clients.”
Ryan Malone, Operations Director, Propeller Mobile said: “Mobile apps are the future for conferences of this scale – the benefits it can offer delegates and organisers are tenfold. Plus, with statistical usage data, and user generated content, Congrex can see exactly what’s popular at the conference and what’s not, so is extremely valuable when considering future events.”
