CO CONGRESS MOBILE®

Every congress needs a Congress APP

An APP for mobile end-user devices. These days an APP for mobile end-user devices is standard practice, and congress participants expect to have one. All major congresses provide a Congress APP. Many smaller congresses are beginning to offer this service too. With the Congress APP, participants hold a congress in their pocket. All the details are ready to hand.

  • can be updated any time. Any additions or changes to the programme reach the APP user fast. 
  • helps participants to find their way around the venue and the schedule. 
  • can replace a printed programme. 
  • facilitates communication for participants before, during and after the congress

The APP has a modular structure. It provides a number of basic modules, and further modules can always be added.

Basic modules:

  • search
  • topics
  • session types
  • scientific programme
  • speakers

Programme Overview
Clearly presented by day, room and time.

Programme Highlights
flagged up by the organisers are listed for the participant, with details of time and place

Q & A: Questions & Answer
In big lecture halls, participants can use the APP to send questions and comments to the speakers and chair during the session. The chair chooses which questions to put to the speaker during the session and which to answer later on the Congress website.

Live Voting
Participants can vote on questions put to the session by using their APP.

Session Evaluation
To assist with evaluation, the APP asks participants to answer questions at the end of the session.

Remote and Push Notification
Up-to-date information is sent straight to participants, who can update the APP on their own end-user device.

Technical exhibition WITH COMPANY NAMES & floor PLAN
In the Congress APP the participant will find a list of exhibitors and a floor plan of the technical exhibition. The module can be expanded to include additional details about the exhibitors. This feature generates revenues for the congress.

Poster Exhibition
A poster list tells participants what is on display and where specific posters are located.

Pathways
The organisers recommend events about particular themes, along with times and venues. This service is especially popular with younger congress participants.

Social Network
More and more congresses are offering their participants a Twitter Wall, which can also be visualised in the APP.

 

The functions provided by the Congress APP can be highlighted as an added benefit when advertising the Congress to participants. The costs of the APP can be met by sponsored funding.
