Pittcon Launches Enhanced Conference & Expo Mobile App for 2016
Pittsburgh, PA – December 15, 2015 – The Pittcon marketing department is pleased to announce the release of its official conference and exposition mobile app, Pittcon 2016. http://pittcon.org/mobile-app/. The app, available for free download in the App Store for iOS and Android devices and the Kindle Fire, serves as a valuable resource tool before, during and after the event. It acts as an all-inclusive real-time show guide containing details on exhibiting companies, technical sessions, Conferee Networking sessions, short courses and local city information.
The Pittcon mobile conference app was developed by ATIV Software and is built on the EventPilot meeting app platform. Powerful features will help attendees to stay organized and easily network with each other. The EventPilot conference app includes the ability to create a customized agenda and offers enhanced search features and product filters for exhibitors and sessions. It also includes expo hall maps, note taking, post-show reporting, social networking and much more.
Marketing Assistant Kim Palastro, who manages the mobile app implementation, commented, “Every year, we strive to reduce our footprint, and the mobile app significantly contributes to this goal. It eliminates the need for printed materials as it delivers advanced functionality and increased benefits as compared to web-driven or hard copy programs.”
