Attendify – Engage Conference Attendees

Attendify is an application that conference organizers can use to encourage guests, exhibitors, and even speakers to network before, after, and during their events. The web-based platform replaces the printed guides that attendees are used to receiving when they arrive at professional conferences, and replaces them with a mobile app that people can use instead.

Expand the networking opportunities at your next conference or event by building a mobile app with Attendify. As the event organizer, you have the option to build a Social App (to promote networking opportunities) or a Guide App (to serve as a replacement for traditional printed pamphlets). Use the app wizard to quickly populate whichever app you choose with all the pertinent information about your event, like schedules, speaker lists, exhibitor profiles, and maps. You can preview your app on any iPhone or Android device, and publish it to the App Store or Google Play.

Conference attendees who download your Social App will see a timeline of everything going on at your event, including tweets, photos, messages, and even programming alerts. Attendees can also create profiles and send private messages to other attendees as a way to make introductions and set up meetings in between sessions. Attendees can also connect when they take photos with their smartphones and add them directly to the timeline for any event.

Practical Uses:

  • Promote networking opportunities at your next conference
  • Make sure your attendees are notified about any last-minute speaker changes
  • Save money by not printing paper pamphlets and event guides
  • Encourage guests to tweet and post photos about your event

Insider Tips:

  • Update the content in your app instantly from any device
  • Customize your app icon with your company’s logo
  • Block unwelcome users from posting on your event’s timeline or contacting other attendees
  • Organizers can find out how many people have downloaded their event apps

What we liked:

  • Attendify is a great way for organizers to add value to their events
  • Attendees can arrange meetings during breaks in between sessions
  • Organizers don’t have to worry about having incorrect information in their programming guides, since they can easily make last minute changes
  • Attendify’s apps work on all the most popular mobile devices

What we didn’t like:

  • Organizer subscriptions automatically renew at the end of the term

  2. Attendify sounds great.

    However, I use Dryfta event app. They have much more features than Attendify and is far more engaging. I also use it to collect leads in the event using its QR code scanner.
