A man with augmented reality googles on


Looking to incorporate the newest event tech into your next conference or meeting? You’ve come to the right place.

Event planners who keep up with cutting-edge mobile event technology hold an advantage over those who don’t. Staying up to date on innovative event apps allows you to save time, astound your attendees, delight sponsors, and reach your planning goals. To help you stay ahead of the curve, here’s what’s new in the mobile event tech space:

1. Chatbots

Chatbots are the future of communication and engagement. As a meeting planner, you’re always looking for ways to enhance your attendees’ experiences and provide them with valuable information. With chatbots, you can achieve both.
Chatbots allow attendees to ask their mobile event app questions and receive instant feedback, like the way someone would use Alexa or Siri. Answers to questions like, “Where is the general session?” and “What time is dinner?” are at your attendees’ fingertips. And the best part? You don’t have to answer questions personally. Consider Chatbot functionality to add value to your event and remove one more responsibility from your busy agenda.

2. Augmented Reality

Do you need to create buzz around a big announcement at your event? Are you looking for a fun, innovative, and awe-inspiring way to build anticipation? Augmented reality is the hottest new feature in the world of mobile event technology.
Augmented reality allows you to give attendees a glimpse into another world. Using a mobile app, participants seek out augmented reality targets that are pieces of a story. Each clue adds up to the big reveal about your product or brand. Create excitement and an unforgettable experience for your next event with augmented reality.

3. Artificial Intelligence

Your attendees want to take in as much meaningful content as possible. If your meeting has hundreds of sessions, it can be time-consuming for your attendees to find the ones that will work best for them. Look to Artificial Intelligence to help solve this problem.
Attendees can answer questions about their interests before your event or when they arrive. Like Netflix, a mobile event app can suggest sessions and content based on the preferences of each user. As your attendees continue to like sessions, the app learns their preferences and provides better recommendations. Your attendees will enjoy the customized feel, and you’ll be able to keep interest and engagement peaked throughout your event.
