The National Safety Council (NSC) held their annual Congress & Expo recently in San Diego. Held annually, this event is the largest gathering of safety, health, and environmental professionals featuring over 14,000 attendees and 900 exhibitors. This monumental event is widely regarded as a “must attend” event for those in the safety industry, and features extensive opportunities for professionals to learn, network, and build off each other’s strengths while working toward the common goal of safety excellence.
In order to provide a greater experience to attendees, NSC offered attendees the ChirpE mobile event app solution, powered by a2z. The NSC congress and Expo mobile app allowed users to preview the session schedule and details in one convenient location, providing a more immersive experience to users. The mobile app also featured a tool for attendees to build their own personal planner. Users could add sessions and favorite exhibitors to their personal planner creating a tailored experience and offering increased efficiency and productivity.
The NSC Congress & Expo Mobile App was downloaded by 3,341 event attendees and exhibitors, accounting for about 40% of those the app was marketed to prior to the event. Attendees primarily used the app to view session lists and details thanks largely to a heavy conference schedule. Other activities included searching for exhibitors and viewing expo plans.
