Why we love this app:
As soon as you look at the conference app, it’s evident that it served as the central location for information and interaction for the event. Almost 80% of the attendees downloaded the app and each of them viewed the conference app an average of 29 times. The Crowd Pics page which they’ve labeled “Share photos here” had over 1,000 views and 260 photos were added (that’s 10 more than the number of attendees)! We love the use of the Image and Text page to share valuable information with attendees while adding some color to the app.
