Mobile app reinforces key sustainability messages and support paper-smart meetings and events
VANCOUVER, B.C. – September 19, 2013 – QuickMobile today announced that its MobileEvent multi-event solution will be deployed by the UN Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, to promote key sustainability messages and maintain its commitment to paper-smart meetings. MobileEvent is a self-serve technology that empowers enterprises to quickly create and deploy an unlimited number of customizable, branded mobile event apps.
QuickMobile’s MobileEvent was utilized to create and distribute an app for the UN Global Compact Leaders Summit 2013 in New York on September 19-20, 2013. As the largest gathering of its kind, the Leaders Summit brings together 1,200 top executives of Global Compact companies and other stakeholder groups from around the world to discuss corporate sustainability strategy at the highest level.
“The Leaders Summit app serves a variety of purposes, from improving communications and attendee networking, to creating a more engaging experience and supporting the Global Compact’s commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its meeting,” said Patrick Payne, CEO and co-founder of QuickMobile.
As part of the Global Compact’s Event Sustainability Strategy, limited printed publications, background materials, agendas or flyers will be provided at the event. Materials will be made available to participants through the mobile event app and other digital media.
Payne added, “Sustainability is an important issue to me and to our company, and has become an issue that concerns more and more of our customers. We are happy that our mobile apps will play a small role in the Global Compact’s efforts to create a more sustainable and environmentally responsible private sector.”
