a2z, Inc., the Maryland-based event management software company, announces that the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society™ (WOCN®) is leveraging a suite of solutions from a2z to offer time saving and planning tools to their attendees and exhibitors for the upcoming 46th Annual Conference. The annual conference is designed for attendees to learn from industry leaders as they develop new skills and network with fellow WOC professionals. This year, the annual conference will take place in Nashville, TN on June 21-25, 2014.The WOCN® Society is experiencing great success with the online networking solution MyWOCN that is powered by a2z. MyWOCN is an integral part of the upcoming annual conference, allowing exhibitors to showcase their products and services via online eBooths and attendees to book appointments with exhibitors through the online matching and networking solution. Last year, attendee and exhibitor use of MyWOCN was remarkable with 74% of attendees logging in to use MyWOCN. Exhibitors received on average 28% of their pre-show leads from MyWOCN.
In addition to exhibitors having the opportunity to create eBooths, MyWOCN matches them with registered attendees who indicate interest in the exhibitors’ product categories. Exhibitors can directly connect with attendees matched with them by the system via direct emails and appointment scheduling tools.
When attendees log in to MyWOCN, they are greeted with various planning tools designed to help attendees be more productive while on site. Attendees are able to search for exhibitors by keywords and products, create a list of their favorite exhibitors, and directly contact these exhibitors to schedule onsite meetings. Attendees can then build a personalized itinerary consisting of sessions they want to be sure to attend, as well as a list of their favorite exhibitors and a calendar of exhibitor and personal meetings.
The planning and networking tools offered in MyWOCN are also available while on the go with the MyWOCN mobile app. The a2z-powered WOCN® Society mobile solution syncs in real-time with the event website, providing exhibitors and attendees an enhanced event experience. The mobile app is available for iOS and Android devices as well as all internet-enabled smartphones. Participants can download and access the Mobile App here.
In addition, the WOCN® Society native mobile app allows attendees to tag their favorite exhibitors, request meetings and add exhibitors’ booth locations to their personalized walking maps showing the best route to the exhibitor’s location. They can also download session handouts and make personal notes as they attend each session and network with exhibitors on the exhibits floor. Users can keep all of their conference meetings and appointments in one place with the personalized itinerary tool.
