Follow the Little Blue Dot: GPS-Enabled Maps on Your Smartphone
We don’t all possess this gift, though having a map in your pocket, in the form of a GPS-enabled smartphone, makes getting from Point A to Point B easier, even for the most directionally-challenged among us. (Guilty as charged!) Even if your attendees stay near the event venue, though, they may get a bit turned around, especially if last night’s mixer left them with little sleep.
With Omnipress’ mobile event app, they’ll never lose their way again. When leaving the convention center, keep an eye on the Maps module inside the app to chart your path and retrace your steps to return, without wondering how far afield you’ve wandered.
The GPS-enabled maps in the mobile event app include not just the venue as a starting point, but other potential stops for attendees, including hotels, restaurants, local attractions, and other points of interest.
Attendees will appreciate having a quick reference to plan their time outside of the conference proper. After all, it’s common knowledge that some of the best meetings they’ll have at your annual event happen after hours, off-site.
Help your attendees avoid losing time in mindless wandering. With GPS-enabled maps, they can leave the building for lunch, find their way back, and make that crucial 1:30 session.
Don’t take our word for how cool this feature is. See for yourself by poking around the mobile event app demo. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
