The need for engagement is real, not only during but before and after your event as well. With today’s short attention spans and endless distractions, it’s difficult to keep attendees engaged.
Hybrid events create additional complexity since both in-person and virtual attendees must be managed in order for an event to be successful. In this situation, a mobile app becomes vital in connecting online and offline audience data. It serves as the central ‘knowledge hub’ for all ongoing activities, both in-person and online.
Hubilo’s event app enables you to address all these requirements and more. The app gives you access to the industry’s largest suite of engagement features, branding capabilities, and robust analytics. This ensures every event you host drives business results.
Let’s explore how attendees can engage and get a 360-degree view of your event using Hubilo’s mobile app.
Simple, Intuitive Navigation
Keeping attendees engaged requires them to be familiar with the event landscape. Which sessions are planned for the event? Which sessions are currently underway? Which are the upcoming sessions? Getting answers to these questions should be effortless for them.
With the minimalistic navigation on Hubilo’s mobile app, you empower event attendees to browse the whole event and join relevant sessions without getting lost. Your attendees can use the Happening Now section to identify ongoing sessions and join them with a simple click. Attendees can also be notified of important information through Notifications.
Smart Matchmaking + Networking
Networking is a crucial part of every event and is one of the main reasons for attendees to participate in an event. With the app, your in-person and virtual attendees can interact seamlessly through Chats, Meetings, and casual discussions in the Lounge. Not just that. The Smart Matchmaking feature helps you drive meaningful engagement by matching relevant attendees with each other.
Short attention spans have made audience engagement a tough job for event planners. You can help your audience prioritize what’s most important by activating levers provided by Hubilo’s virtual event app. The four ways to achieve this are as follows:
- Chats: Real-time interactions on Chat give audiences a sense of human connection that they crave.
- Polls: Asking questions via polls and sharing the live audience pulse is a great way to keep your audience hooked to the event.
- Q&A: This section on the app allows your event moderator to narrow down questions from both virtual and in-person attendees, ensuring that all audiences are heard.
- Leaderboard: You can amp up the fun quotient with contests and incentivize attendees to engage with the Leaderboard.
Deeply Branded Experience
Ensure your event speaks your brand language by using your brand colors and backgrounds throughout the app. Add sponsor visibility across the event using banners and logos to monetize the app. Give your sponsors additional visibility with branded Virtual Booths.
With the mobile app, your attendees get complete flexibility in designing their schedules. They can add relevant sessions and discussions to their calendar, or block time for when they aren’t available. Organizers can segment both the in-person and virtual audience into groups to restrict the visibility of certain sections of the event to a limited set of people.
Easy Access To Event
What could be handier than being able to access the event from any device? With a custom mobile app, attendees can watch and participate from anywhere, even if they only want to attend a few sessions while on the move. This option opens up the event for a larger audience, something that is not possible with traditional systems.
