Event registration specialist Circdata launched its new event app, Fusion-Visit, at New York Vet and London Vet Show at ExCeL London this month.
The Circdata team worked with show organiser CloserStill Media to produce the app on both iOS and Android platforms and said there had been 31,000 user activities on it.
Organisers can use the app to push notifications to the audience and it also enables gamification and awards points for visiting stands. A real-time leaderboard in the app displays the visitors with the most points throughout the day.
Registrants scan the QR code within their registration confirmation to be automatically logged into the app, which also holds the access badge for the event.
The app allows delegates to rate speakers and sessions, and organisers can download reports on user activity pre-, post- and during the event. The app also packs in an offline mode so event organisers don’t suffer any embarrassment if the Wi-Fi network lets them down.
“We were delighted to launch the new Circdata event app this month, which is the perfect partner to our event registration platform. We aim to support our clients in creating meaningful event experiences with focus on engagement, interactivity and networking, and the tools available within the app do just that,” said Chris Clipston, chief operating officer at Circdata.
