It’s All in the App

Reading time ( words)

The IPC APEX EXPO mobile app provides everything attendees could possibly need for the event, including viewing exhibitors, sessions, speakers, and products. Need information on an exhibiting company? With the IPC APEX EXPO mobile app, you can look up exhibitors by company name and search by product category—it’s that simple.   

When an attendee registers and answers the demographic questions, the information enters their agenda planner and provides suggestions on exhibitors and sessions that may be of interest to them, which they can then add to their planner. If an attendee adds an event they are not registered for, the app will take them back to registration so they can add it. The planner will also notify attendees if they have any scheduling conflicts when adding events to their planner. 

When an attendee creates their schedule in the planner, they can sign into the app and their schedule will show under “My Schedule.” The app also has features including “What’s on Now,” which will show them any events taking place at the current time. App users can also see a list of other attendees (limited information) and can request connections with them.  

The app also allows users to see all of IPC’s social media channels to keep on top of what IPC posts during the event.

Although the printed show directory is a great resource, we all know that program changes inevitably happen as soon as the directory goes to print; with an app, users are always able to see the most up-to-date information. Changes to meeting room locations, additions or cancellations, etc., will be reflected within the app. The app also allows IPC event staff to send out push notifications during the event in case of any last-minute changes.
