Great content is the first and perhaps most important step in a great convention or meeting, but if a tree falls in the woods and no one hears, does it make a sound? Most likely what you are lacking is great marketing and communication (before, during, and after) about your event and all benefits you offer to sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees.
Are you marketing your convention or meeting in all possible cost-effective ways? When the attendees show up at the door, are you doing more than giving them a map and a package of freebees and promotional materials? Do your giveaways really help market your sponsors or make them easier to find? Are you helping your exhibitors disseminate information, making your convention more valuable to exhibitors, sponsors, and participants?

Here are just a few of the things a mobile app could do for your convention:
The possibilities are virtually endless and it costs less than you might think.
