AES announces a mobile app that was developed for the 133rd Convention, which takes place in San Francisco's Moscone Center from October 26 to October 29, 2012. The 133rd AES Mobile Convention offers connectivity and flexibility to exhibitors and attendees, and is available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android. Blackberry and other Smartphone users can use a mobile Web version that is optimized for those devices.
Coordinated by AES CIO Steve Johnson, the app delivers instant access to every aspect of the event, from fast breaking program updates to comprehensive details on technical programs, tours and special events. It also features a user-friendly option for locating exhibitors on the show floor, even when Internet access is unavailable.
“Another new feature is clickable presenter names, enabling rapid access to background credits for every session participant," Johnson says. "Changes for the exhibition are even more dramatic. The app provides detailed information on each exhibitor, and accelerates downloading of brochures, videos and news releases. Another new button jumps users directly to specific booth locations on the show floor map.
Johnson adds that it also provides convention news bulletins, a Twitter feed following the #AESorg hashtag, and more.
In addition, the AES has developed a wide range of Exhibitor opportunities designed to help companies stand out from the crowd. Options range from uploading logos and brochures, to banner ads and video presentations.
