Leading AV and event staging provider Staging Connections, is making events more convenient with the launch of its landmark mobile application (app) called Event Briefcase. The app enables greater attendee engagement and expedites the timely process of program updates, through a customisable event app. In an industry first, Staging Connections is offering the app for free when clients use them for their AV and event services.
Available on any internet connected device, Event Briefcase puts valuable event information in the hands of attendees in real time. Event Organisers load and manage all event-specific content to the easy to use content management system.
Tony Chamberlain, Managing Director, Staging Connections commented on the launch of Event Briefcase.
“Creating this new tool and providing it free of charge to our clients is another way Staging Connections is working to make events more convenient, effective and engaging.
“The app enables our clients to manage their own content, avoiding the need to use expensive third party app solutions or the need to print conference programs. The event organiser is in complete control of the content, making live changes at any time,” said Mr Chamberlain.
Used recently at Grand Hyatt Melbourne, Victoria Damiani, Director of Business Development, commented on the benefits the app can bring event organisers.
“We’re delighted to be able to offer a free event app to our customers who host their event at our hotel. We’ve found that people increasingly expect to be able to use their smart phones at events to obtain key information, and to be able to offer this service free of charge will be a real advantage to event planners who are looking for new cost effective ways to collaborate with their attendees,” said Ms Damiani.
Event Briefcase enables event organiser to load and manage venue details, agendas/session details, speaker bios, external links, downloadable documents, attendee lists, bulletins/updates, transport information, sponsors details and video/multimedia content.
The app has a simple, self-guided instructional video and is available at no cost to clients when they engage Staging Connections for AV and technical event services.
