Networking is at the heart of any successful event, but breaking the ice and managing new relationships is a challenge for attendees and event planners alike. That’s the problem Attendify, a San Francisco based startup, is working to address by launching a private mobile social network for events.
“We focused on making the experience of using the Social App familiar for attendees,” says Michael Balyasny, Attendify’s co-founder and CEO. “When you open the app it looks just like your Facebook timeline with photos, messages, likes and comments, but the magic for event planners is that they’re always in control of the social experience,” continues Michael.
Attendify’s Social App combines simple app creation, powerful social tools, and a content management control panel that together comprise a complete end-to-end event engagement platform. Some the key capabilities include:
- Timeline: a single place for attendees to view and engage with social content.
- Photo Sharing: take a photo and share it to the timeline instantly.
- Messaging: share short Twitter style messages to start conversations.
- Profiles: every attendee has a social profile that tracks their activity.
- Management: event planners can send push notifications, moderate content, and even block users.
The process of creating an app is simple; it takes just days to have the fully branded app published to the App Store and Google Play. “In the past six months we’ve had a chance to test the Beta version of the Social App at over 100 events ranging from large conferences with clients such as Philips and AstraZeneca, to small meetings of just a few hundred people,” says Michael, “We were very encouraged by the outcome; a solution that gives attendees the ability to share, and planners the comfort of knowing they’re in control is very powerful.”
Attendify works out of the box and is tailored to the needs of attendees and event planners.
