Having great speakers at your event isn’t enough; people need to be able to find them. Mobile apps make it easy for you to schedule speakers and send out reminders to your attendees through push notifications. Your attendees don't have to wander the halls anymore; they can find speakers within seconds on their Smartphones.
Because of mobile apps, attendees can now message others outside the room to come see an amazing speaker. It’s not just about the speaker talking on stage to a one-time audience, though. It’s about each attendees’ own audience—all of the others whom the speaker could potentially reach through the features of a mobile app.
Imagine going to see your favorite band perform live. Whether or not you know it, there’s a connection building between you, the performer, and the audience. Trying to share your experience with someone who wasn’t there used to be impossible until mobile entered the scene. CrowdCompass apps make it possible to share your event through a new feature called My Compass—the event industry’s first real-time activity feed.
My Compass takes social networking hundreds of steps further by making the speaker more visible to the social network of every attendee. Mobile phone users with Internet access average 700 social connections. Mobile apps allow them to upload videos of speakers, tweet about a session, or share every part of their event experience through My Compass. Because of a simple mobile app, a speaker has the opportunity to impact thousands of others and gain a following that goes beyond a one-day event. The more people your speakers reach, the more popular your event becomes.
