Apps have become an integral component of the marketing and communication services offered by trade fair organizers. Ellen Matheis, coordinator of web solutions at Messe Frankfurt, talks about the advantages of trade fair apps for exhibitors and visitors, as well as the added value for organizers.
Just in time to the opening of Ambiente ( February 10th to 14th 2017 ) Messe Frankfurt presents its updated Navigator Apps for visitors and exhibitors with a lot of new features.
The app is ready and waiting to be installed by the many million mobile phone users. But how does an app provider make sure the app is installed on the smartphones of its target group? And even more importantly, how do they make sure it stays there?
Requirements of event apps are varied: Visitors are looking for the shortest way to an exhibitor, the lecture programme and evening events at a glance, and want to know what’s being discussed on social networks in the industry – Exhibitors equally value being visible and found on mobile devices. We have made a list of the features that belong in a good event app.
Apps have become an established part of event and trade fair communication. This is primarily because mobile technologies are particularly effective when the target group is online while on the go (at trade fairs). Here’s an overview of the development of mobile usage and the opportunities for event organizers when it comes to communicating with their target groups for events and trade fairs.
Inspiring, tactile and on the pulse of the industry: on January 13th, the Heimtextil trade fair in Frankfurt am Main once again came to a close with a successful balance. Some bloggers were on site to report on the event for you.
