The American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) recently released their paperless EventPilot meeting app for their 69th Annual Meeting in Boston. Built on the dynamic EventPilot platform, the app allows attendees to access all of their program content via the app, eliminating the need for printed materials. International medical professionals attending this year’s conference are able to travel light thanks to the ability to view handouts in the app. Learn more at

“With attendees traveling from around the world, the ability to have a completely digital meeting is extremely important,” said Jessica Daniels, Tech Project Czarina for ASSH. “EventPilot is the best conference app for us since it includes not just the session content or course information, but also handouts and abstracts in one easy-to-use paperless solution.”

EventPilot goes above and beyond a basic digital conference program. Easy UI design combined with powerful interactive functionality create a sustainable and engaging user experience unmatched with paper programs. The latest research is shared with surgeons and fellow professionals in a timely manner since all informative materials are linked within the users’ mobile app schedule. The EventPilot conference app can even help increase retention and learning. It allows attendees to conveniently take notes directly in context of the session or abstract which are automatically included in a time-saving email trip report or can be shared via social media.

To ensure the best paperless experience for everyone, ASSH offers attendees without smart devices the option to reserve an iPad for the Annual Meeting. The EventPilot conference app is made available through many of the popular platforms, including iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android, and Kindle Fire.

EventPilot mobile conference app features include:

Animated Offline Floor Plans

Attendees can find their way easily in large venues with EventPilot’s animated floor plans. Room-specific pins drop directly onto the map for easy navigation and increase on-time attendance.

In-Session Commenting

Users can comment directly within the session as information is being shared, allowing attendees to interact with one another in real-time.

The free iPhone and iPad conference app is available now in the App Store. The free Android event app is available in the Android market. Search for “ASSH Annual Meeting 2014”. A web version for Windows Phone and other web-enabled devices is available.
