Event App for Zukunft Personal trade show with networking features just launched

Today, we launched the new app for the leading trade show for human resource management, HRM Expo (Zukunft Personal), taking place 14-16 October 2014 in Cologne.

Besides the event schedule (with reminder functions), the exhibitor lists and floor plans, the app has quite some interesting networking features.App_ZukunftPersonal

Users can login with their LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook profiles, send each others private messages and contribute to a timeline in Facebook-style. Thus, attendees and exhibitors can get in touch with each other already before the show, share their impressions from the show floor and take part in quick polls inside the app.

Other nice features are that you can use the app also in offline mode, once you have finished the app download. That makes it easy to plan your trip, the exhibitors you want to meet and the sessions you want to attend while on the plane or in other locations with limited connectivity.

As I stated in one of my previous blog posts about current app usage trends, I believe it is necessary to give your target audience a good reason to download your app. Judging by the take-up that happened already on day one of the app launch, it seems we have hit the right tone.

On top of things, we managed to offset the cost by a sponsor already with the first edition.

Click here to download the app in case you want to give it a try (available for iOS and Android). The app is based on the technology by the provider Attendify.
