Tom Crowl of The Savvy Event Planner recently interviewed our CEO, Maria Seidman. Tom first heard about Yapp from Melanie Woodward of Event Planning Blueprint. Tom was interviewing Melanie  about Event Planning Tips. Melanie was sharing four tips she learned from the event planners of the Awesomeness Fest in Costa Rica. One of the tips was to use Yapp for the event app! Melanie explains, “The next thing that they did really well was the event app. They created their own event app on Yapp. Y-A-P-P. And so, anyone listening can go to Yapp and create their own event app as well. But what that did was it makes it really easy to update the schedule. And also there’s a news feed on there, there were maps and PDFs on there so if some of the breakout sessions were maybe moved, or they wanted to highlight them, that was all in the app. So, that was number two, is the event app.”
