Beacon Technology - What is it and will it work for your event?

Today’s event attendee relies heavily on their mobile device to check email, stay in touch at work and maintain connection with family and the world at large through texts, alerts and social media. Because of this, conference mobile apps and mobile alerts have become increasingly popular at corporate and association conferences and events. While the on-site conference printed guide remains a staple, the mobile app is a great companion and offers another “on the go,” real-time channel of communication. With beacon technology, event apps are even more personal and powerful. Beacons work in conjunction with your conference mobile app to deliver location-based specialized messaging and content.

I have been very pleased with our decision to select Meeting Expectations to represent the American Beekeeping Federation. Their ability to provide expertise in all areas that were in need of improvement has been above "our expectations." Their management in the areas of daily operations, conference planning, accounting, membership development initiatives, website and educational programs has helped to move the ABF in a direction that I know has benefited our organization greatly and is assisting in our growth.
