Background

NODA wanted a convenient and effective way to communicate event-related information to its members. The NODA board understood that email threads and newsletters weren’t reaching their members as much as they’d like. In turn, event attendance was starting to reflect this lack of proper engagement.

An event app that could store all information digitally was a well-thought, strategic move for NODA and its annual conferences. The NODA board figured that if information was easy to access, update, and communicate- members would gain the most out of their attendance. This would not only boost the attendee experience but would also result in higher participation in break-out sessions, volunteers, and improve the overall efficacy of the conference.

Smoother Attendee Experience

Event coordinators understand that programming constantly changes, and relaying that information to the attendees is crucial. If attendees aren’t privy to schedule changes, it can cause some unnecessary stress on the coordinators during the event. An event not going exactly as planned happens all the time, equipping yourself with the proper tool can determine whether event changes are a stress-free or stressful experience for everyone involved.

Additionally, NODA’s mobile app proved to be a great way to create new revenue streams and sponsorship opportunities; in-app sponsorship areas provided great exposure for their sponsors, generating additional revenue meant that the app literally paid for itself.

    The Results

    Organizing an event doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive. NODA was able to provide its members with an event app that replaced all their traditional event paper programming in order to effectively relay information. Additionally, the event coordinators were able to update the app in real-time when anything related to the event programming changed. Their event app reduced the cost and time that goes into creating printed material to zero.

    An app empowered the attendees with the opportunity to navigate the venue, read up on breakout descriptions, create personalized schedules, browse local attractions (the Conference took place in Orlando so the coordinators added a resource section on how and when people could attend Disney), and lastly- better prepare themselves for the conference by referring to all the event programming. All conveniently stored inside of one app.
