"Going the Extra Mile": Creating a Mobile App for Your Next Trade Show

Jan 4, 2022 4:18:00 PM

Smartphones dominate our daily life. But other than using smartphones to scan QR codes or tweeting live from trade shows, how can a mobile phone be used to increase knowledge and participation at your next trade show? How can you use a phone to help your attendees and promote your sponsors better?


When you add an app to your event with Map D, you are adding a convenient way for attendees to customize their schedule, keep track of favorite speakers and sessions, and find/favorite exhibitors and sponsors on the interactive map at their fingertips can also provide attendees with a greater ease of navigating through the show.

It is true that every event on Map D provides similar functionality to attendees without the app, but having your own custom branded app that attendees can launch from their home screen simplifies and elevates the experience. 

Push Notifications

Want to nudge people towards a raffle, announce when lunch is served, or remind people that a keynote session is starting? The app from Map D allows you to take advantage of a phone's so-called "native" functionality such as push notifications. This allows you to schedule or instantly send push notifications to buzz your attendees and share important updates.

Additional Promotion

Want to cross-promote upcoming events? Our app does that. Want to spotlight sponsors with custom content and buttons? Our app does that, too. Have more than one venue involved in your event, and need a way to link directions straight to google? You guessed it - our app does that. The app opens a world of additional content that can help you promote sponsors, locations, and upcoming events.

Adding an app to your event can create quite the buzz among mobile marketing.

Creating a mobile app with Map D is an easy and cost-effective way to elevate the event experience for all of your events.

Much like any other tier of service, the mobile app brings new functionality to your events like schedulable push notifications, locations lists that integrate with Google Maps, custom content buttons, added convenience for your attendees, and cross-promotion of all your events. 

What sets the mobile app apart from other tiers of service is it is charged as a one-time fee that applies this additional functionality to all of your events with Map D.

So, are you ready to get started with an app?
