A mobile app to share information about the event

We’ve said before, a mobile app can be a direct communication channel to users. To be really effective, it has to be able to share valuable and relevant contents. This way, users are willing to keep on their devices, because it’s useful and maybe necessary.  For example it’s possible to have the ticket inside one of the app section, that can be redeemed at the entrance (for example through a QR Code reader). With the features offered by NearIT, the event manager can constantly monitor the number of tickets redeemed and the time. All these can be reviewed  in the analytics section of the platform.There are many kinds of information that can be shared, such as the event program, contacts and exhibitors list.

The chance to share contextual information, based on the users location, can really make the difference. With NearIT you can plan different contents based on users location inside the pavilions, for example by using beacon technology, you  could plan different contents for different parts of the day, like a coupon for a free coffee during the break. A mobile app like StartIT, will allow users create a user profile sharing information that NearIT can use to plan personalized contents.

A mobile app to promote exhibitor and sponsored events

During the I-Days Festival, the StartIt app was efficiently used by event sponsors and exhibitors.

The app can be used as a launchpad to promote individual booths and the  general activities done by the the event planners.
