Quirk’s Connect 2017

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 2017 is a complimentary, state-of-the-art app 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 or connect their LinkedIn account to the app 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.

New for 2017 – Connect with attendees next to you and exchange business card details electronically! A new feature of the app allows you to view the people that are in proximity of you (mobile device geolocation must be on for this function) and you can exchange contact details and keep notes with one click! It is also a great way to remember the names of the faces you recognize!
