“We are excited to offer members many new features to our meeting app, this year, including the offline PowerPoint slide viewer, which is instrumental in delivering remarkably detailed information during sessions,” said Gayle Irvin, Associate Executive Director, American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. “As a non-profit society, we offer sponsors our EventPilot conference app’s excellent ad packages to boost funding for our annual meeting.”

The EventPilot conference app offers a large variety of sponsorship options that provide exhibitors with attractive and targeted advertising opportunities. Event planners keep track of successful advertising campaigns using the paperless app’s usage reports and analytics. New to the ASCRS meeting app, and an effective way to increase attendee retention, is the unrivalled offline PowerPoint slide viewer. This allows the attending physicians and surgeons to view and take notes on detailed slides directly from their mobile device - a must for medical conferences which rely on PowerPoint to often display intricate diagrams and photos.

The EventPilot app is accessible through many of the popular platforms, including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, and Kindle Fire.

EventPilot mobile conference app features include:

Generate Revenue

Sponsorship packages are customized to the organization’s exclusive conference app. Options range from timed ads on NOW screen, media links for exhibitors, rotating ads in session view, and a top sponsor can be included in the imagery on the splash screen. Ads are updated in real-time allowing changes at any point during the life of the mobile app.

Powerful Analytics

EventPilot’s analytic reporting allows event planners to view the most popular sessions, speakers, and exhibitors. The extensive report highlights banner click through rates and ad views, which is a valuable marketing tool to attract influential sponsors for the next event.

Offline PowerPoint Presentation Slide Viewer

The unmatched offline PowerPoint presentation feature keeps attendees’ focus on the speaker and enables them to take notes directly onto the presentation from their device without requiring Wi-Fi. Users can bookmark and share important slides on Twitter or via Email.
