Congrex EventApp for Association Programme EIBTM

Pressmeddelande   •   Nov 29, 2010 07:00 CET

With this year’s edition of EIBTM, Congrex announced its development of a new EventApp for the Association Programme. This new tool is a great solution for those in attendance and another important step towards delivering paperless conferences. The new Congrex EIBTM Association Programme EventApp has been developed as an online-based conference navigating tool rather than down-loadable software – making it very user-friendly and accessible through many hardware platforms.

The new online tool provides all the background details for the conference including conference agenda, list of speakers, exhibitor information and vital online networking functions. Additionally, it allows users to create their own favourite sections, search infrastructure information such as transportation, destination highlights, venue and accommodations information, as well as emergency contact numbers. A special feature is the ability to post messages on the EventApp message board. It’s easy to use. The user goes to the mobile website www.congrex.com/eventapp and uses the link – which can also be bookmarked - to enter the site. Only participants of the Association Programme have access to the Network, and once there, participants have the whole EIBTM Association Programme at their finger tips – an easy and very valuable tool to facilitate their experience.

Congrex believe this is another important step in deliverable a more valuable experience for participants and more responsible conferencing by establishing another paperless tool for conference goers. As an overall Supporter to the Association Programme, Congrex is committed to ensuring the quality of the experience for those in attendance at this year’s EIBTM Association Programme. This means an application that is user and environmentally friendly – and that facilitates getting connected and staying connected with those in attendance. Commenting on this new development, Congrex’s CEO, Layth Bunni added, “Our previous Apps have been only available through Itunes, for Iphones and Ipads only. We have decided to take it to the next level with the EIBTM Association Programme EventApp with its accessibility via iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android devices and Blackberry (including the Torch) and Windows Mobile. This makes it very user friendly, and I know Association Programme participants will find it valuable to connect with each other and communicate via the tool.”

EIBTM is a leading global event for the meetings and events industry, held in the vibrant business and tourism destination of Barcelona. The event will be held at the Global Meetings and Events Exhibition, Fira Gran Via in Barcelona from 30 November to 2 December 2010.
