Guaranteeing a seamless ibtm world experience, Goomeo, the dedicated trade show and exhibition platform for mobile event apps, is providing this year’s ibtm world app.
The app will allow attendees to organise their diary appointments and will offer a useful 3D floor plan with routing. Other features include an exhibitor directory and information on the various Knowledge sessions and networking events taking place.
The application will also grant a complimentary lead-capture system, enabling exhibitors to use their smart phones to scan attendee badges. The information can then be downloaded into a report free-of-charge via Goomeo’s system. If attendees wish to have separate hand-held lead capture devices, they can purchase these through the Exhibitor Hub before or during the show.
Meanwhile, a new app feature this year is the Selfie function, which is built within the app for ready-made pictures that can be instantly uploaded to social media sites. Another special feature is the appointment rating system, which allows both buyers and suppliers the chance to rate appointments in real time and also report no-shows in real time which can then be followed up on by the team.
Marketing director, Goomeo, Florian Courgenouil said: “For the first time, all attendees will have their own profile in the app and will be able to connect with each other. With this social media solution inside the event, the attendees won’t lose business opportunities anymore. The in-app lead retrieval will also make it a lot easier for the attendees to save the details of everyone they meet.”
Also speaking of the development was senior event director, ibtm world, Graeme Barnett: “Goomeo has created an app which really does enhance all our attendees’ experience of the show. With all the details in one place, some new features and fun ideas, it is designed to be the social and business hub on the go and we will have a dedicated App support stand where the Goomeo team will be on hand to give advice.”
The app is available to download in app stores or at www.ibtmworld.com/app.
