What is an Event App?

Let me tell you a story of Harvey!

Harvey is a master of event planning!

He was known for his impeccable event organizing skills. If anybody wanted to organize an event that people would cherish for years, they knew whom to call!

Fast forwarding to 2017, Harvey’s charm isn’t what it used to be. As per him, he isn’t much smooth with event technology. He says, attendee’s expectations have increased, engaging them is more of a challenge with outdated tactics, especially networking, and events are no more just events, people expect events to be an experience in itself.

If you are just like Harvey, you’re not alone. He is failing but you wouldn’t!

Because you have an Event App!

Evolution of Event App

Early on event apps were meant to merely simplify navigation for the attendees. The features that event apps provided were pretty basic. Earlier event apps were more or less a mirror of an event website.

With time, the need of doing more than just digital flyers raised. Developers began innovating various aspects of the app and integrated a lot of creative features such as interactive maps, gamification, etc.

The list of tasks that the app fulfilled also grew longer; venue management, check-ins, registrations and ticketing, integrating food coupons, event networking, etc.

Then came in-app messaging. Then came the integration of VR & AI and Chatbots ultimately!

Event Apps have embraced the technology and they are continuously evolving. Necessity is the mother of invention and this evolution is the result of attendee’s necessity.
