Across all generations, the opportunity to network and make face-to-face connections is one of the top three driving factors that impact the decision to attend events. In response to this demand, we’re excited to announce the release of a new major enhancement to the EventMobi event app platform – Appointment Booking. This tool is the most effective way to book on-site meetings, helping attendees connect and book 1-on-1 meetings with each other before and during an event.
“Face-to-face time is such a crucial factor in an event’s success.”
“Traditionally, interactions between attendees were random and serendipitous. But since face-to-face time is such a crucial factor in an event’s success, planners need a way to enable for more intentional connections. With Appointment Booking, networking is made easier and measurable,” says Bob Vaez, CEO of EventMobi.
With the EventMobi Appointment Booking tool, not only are attendees able to explore the attendee list, they can now schedule times and confirm meetings on-site with other attendees or exhibitors weeks in advance.
Clients have already been taking advantage of the new tool and seeing great results. “The ability to book meetings at our conference is incredibly beneficial and an efficient bonus for our executives. They were able to make more purposeful connections according to their needs and interests,” says Tracy Blyth, Executive Director of the Canadian Society of Association Executives Trillium.
How EventMobi Appointment Booking Changes Networking at Events
Ease of use is at the heart of the design with a convenient process that requires no training or special skills from attendees. An attendee just needs to locate a specific person in the attendee list and send a meeting request via the event app. The respondent then receives an email or push notification, which they can then accept or reject. If accepted, appointment details appear in the agendas of both parties.
Attendees can have confidence in knowing that communication is delivered in a private and secured 1-on-1 channel only visible to the meeting participants. Additionally, for attendees not interested in receiving meeting invites, they can easily opt-out of receiving appointment requests in the preference centre on the event app.
