Conference Apps are Where It's At

Conference smartphone apps are one of the newest trends in the business and advocacy arena. From floor plans to session descriptions to programs and maps, conference apps are a great way to provide a one-stop shop for any and all details your attendees may need to know. Here at Advocacy Associates, we provide scheduling assistance to organizations and associations that are hosting an Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill, an event which is often paired with an annual conference. After being introduced to so many of these great apps at many of these conferences, it occurred to us that we were still only offering physical pieces of paper when it came to congressional schedules (SO early 2000’s), and that it was time to, well, get with the times!

Upon this awakening, we developed a multi-platform smartphone app specifically for our Stress Free Lobby Days program. Participants who are taking part in congressional meetings can download our app to view their schedules, map to their meetings on the hill, check for updates to their schedules, and take notes during their meetings. Not only that, but they can also use the app to find places to eat and things to do in the area for those longer breaks between meetings. Not only does our app provide certain functionalities that you simply can’t get from a piece of paper, but it also serves as a great backup for those who still prefer to use their printed schedule.

If you don’t already provide an app for your annual conference, you may want to consider it for next year. Your attendees will thank you for it, and maybe even come back next year!
