The Rise of the Event App
The event planning industry is only recently experiencing the the type of digital revolution that has disrupted other industry sectors. As event planners see the benefits and ease of digitizing different parts of the event planning process, the array of apps has grown exponentially. But whether you plan a small or a big event, which apps do you need? How can you choose the best event app for your event?
This event app gives you the ability to create unique apps for each event you host. This lets you provide a custom, mobile experience for attendees. It also allows for easier communication, information sharing, and messaging for the specific events. After the initial download, the app is also available offline, working as a mobile “program” for your event without the cost or clutter of paper programs. Finally, you can lease out space within the app to sponsors or advertisers for the event, making it easier for promotional partners to advertise and communicate with attendees.

You can also schedule speaker slots and attendance lists for different speakers or panels. Finally, you can easily create and share mobile conference schedules with attendees also.

Aside from the usual organization features, Grupio offers event planners the ability to create custom quizzes, surveys, or analytics for use while managing and debriefing the event itself. You can also promote your brand via a custom mobile event app icon, top navigation bar, splash entry image, menu background, and app background.
