Example of Push Notification in the Mobile AppThe mobile app provides attendees with session and speaker information, exhibitor and sponsor profiles, general event details, maps and more — all in the palm of their hands! Almost nobody is ever without their phone, so take advantage of the habit and get your company, brand and products noticed before, during and after the event with these cost-effective opportunities.

Capture attention by sending a short, customized message directly to convention attendees' mobile device.  Push Notifications are the optimal way to make important announcements and promotional offerings to attendees directly.  These messages provide an effective vehicle to remind attendees to stop by your booth, attend your sponsored session, schedule a meeting, participate in an event or challenge, or direct them to a web page.

Messages get through!  Push Notifications appear on an attendee's screen even if the event app is closed.  And, if an attendee turns off push notifications, the message still appears within the Activity Feed within the event app.

Timing is Everything!  All Push Notifications are scheduled in advance to ensure that they are issued in a timely and relevant manner.  Limited to one notification per day, per organization, messages may be scheduled on Tuesday (March 12), Wednesday (March 13), Thursday (March 14), or Friday (March 15).
