We’ve been hard at work updating and improving our web app for client conventions and conferences. Many of our clients know this app as ConventionReady. With the addition of many new features, and with a broader focus that now includes education and leadership conferences as well as conventions, we are reintroducing the platform as our Online Conference Guide, or ConferenceGuide for short.

“We had two goals in updating and expanding our convention and conference app,” explains Mary Donahue, ConferenceGuide’s client service coordinator. “First, we’ve made event set up so easy, it can now be a perfect fit for both larger annual conventions and smaller, more frequent education conferences. Second, we greatly expanded the ways our app engages attendees, sponsors, speakers, and exhibitors, including a state-of-the-art, one-to-one meeting scheduler.”

As an HTML-based multi-purpose microsite, ConferenceGuide is flexible, free of cumbersome app store procedures and download requirements, and can be easily reused, one event after another.

Our app’s first live event was the Washington Health Care Association’s 2019 Annual Convention, May 20-24, 2019. Many of the upgrades to the app were requested by WHCA and its 2019 convention planning committee.

WHCA’s overall goal was to expand engagement opportunities between business partners and attendees. This was the impetus for making it fast and easy for exhibitors to schedule personal meetings with their customers and prospects.

Brenda Orffer, WHCA’s Executive Vice President, summed up the outcome this way: “Congratulations on adding the 1:1 meetings feature to our convention app. Your support for our 2019 convention, especially through all the next-generation features you’ve added, is very much appreciated. Great job!”
