How to Add a Mobile Event App Without Losing Your Mind
Every time you add a mobile app to your personal smartphone, there’s a gnawing voice inside your head. It’s time to add a mobile event app for the association’s next conference. I’ve been avoiding it far too long.
Then another voice enters the “conversation,” as it has many times before: But that’s going to mean so much work. I’m going to have to send out RFPs, sit through endless presentations, and attend meetings on which company to use. And that’s before we even start building the app! I don’t think I take on another irritating, soul-sucking project like that. Members would love to have a mobile app, but it’s possible they won’t miss what they’ve never had. Maybe I can put it off one more year.
(Let’s put aside the fact that you’re hearing voices in your head. Contrary to popular belief, internal self-talk is not a sign of mental illness, just the marker of a normal, busy brain.)
You can have it all—a mobile event app for your attendees and the peace of mind that it won’t be that bad to put it together. The secret is to streamline the process.
Think about it: Isn’t it the extra steps that turn event content management into a time suck? Reaching out to different vendors for every delivery format gets tiresome. And updates to three separate systems? It’s for the birds!
Make it easier on yourself—partner with Omnipress. With our EventCMS suite of services, you can use a single vendor for print, website services, and that new mobile event app. Work with a proven leader in the industry that has helped associations like yours for 36 years.
Build a mobile app with people who understand not just conferences, but how association events differ from a corporate sales meeting or a wedding expo. Streamline the process by working with a company that already understands where you’re coming from, and where you’d like to go.
The next time you download an app (for example, the excellent mind-boosting games in the Lumosity app), you can think, I’m excited to get started on a mobile event app for the association. I’d better make a note to call Omnipress!
