Conference App to Engage Audience at MPI’s World Education Congress

VANCOUVER, B.C. – July 22, 2011 – Meeting Professionals International (MPI), the meeting and event industry’s largest and most vibrant global community, has contracted with premier mobile conference application developer QuickMobile to create a mobile conference app for its renowned World Education Congress, which takes place July 23-26, in Orlando, Fla. The WEC 2011 Mobile Conference App, which replaces the paper event guide, gives access to all the crucial conference information and allows the user to pro-actively engage, connect and interact with other conference attendees before, during and after the event using their mobile devices.

“This is the second year in a row that QuickMobile is delivering the mobile conference application for MPI’s prestigious World Education Congress,” said Patrick Payne, QuickMobile’s CEO. “As a strategic partner and MPI’s mobile solution provider of choice, we’ve worked closely with MPI to deliver an unprecedented mobile experience at this year’s WEC conference. Our goal is to maximize attendee interaction and engagement, and we’re excited to showcase the WEC Mobile App to meeting planners from around the world.”

The Mobile Conference App is designed to run on iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry devices. The WEC 2011 application, which features innovative functionality specifically developed to enhance the overall event experience, facilitates private messaging among conference attendees, dynamic scheduling updates, image sharing, interactive polling as well as integration with popular social platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.

Said Greg Lohrentz, MPI’s CFO, COO: ”The demand for connection via “mobile” device in our industry continues to grow. By continuing our partnership with QuickMobile to develop our event apps on all major smartphone and tablet platforms and with advanced functionality, we empower our members and attendees to maximize their WEC experience, increase business connections and professional development gained during the conference”.
