Meeting Professionals International BC Chapter today recognized QuickMobile for its positive impact on the meetings and conventions industry. During the chapter’s National Meetings Industry Day (NMID) at the Vancouver Convention Centre, QuickMobile, the world’s leading developer of mobile apps, received the NMID Influence Award, which recognizes people or organizations that have supported the development of meetings and conventions or the development of policy and programs impacting the industry. Each chapter within MPI’s 71 chapters and clubs worldwide recognizes one person or organization that has made a significant difference to the meeting’s industry.
In 2011, QuickMobile delivered more than 300 mobile event apps to customers around the world. As a pioneer of mobile meeting applications, QuickMobile was the first company to develop an application for the iPhone and the iPad; the first to deploy an app for all five major mobile platforms for a single event; and the first to deploy a mobile meeting app with game-style incentives.
