Quirk’s Event App 2018


When creating an event that offers an integrated experience with greater networking opportunities, we knew we wanted an innovative app that would connect everyone at the event. The Quirk’s Event App 2018 is a complimentary, state-of-the-art app and mobile Web site that not only functions as a repository for all vital content of the event, it also acts as the social media hub and is designed to help attendees and exhibitors easily make connections – old and new.

Registered attendees simply create a profile and answer a few questions. The app then recommends connections, focusing on other attendees with similar interests. App users can chat with other attendees and even request meetings. Attendees can view profiles of the exhibiting firms and request private meeting times with particular vendors. The app’s robust scheduler will keep track of all personal meetings and events.
