More and more people today are concerned about protecting the environment and minimizing our carbon footprint on the world around us. If you stop and think about a conference you quickly understand that trying to make an event “green” can be a challenge if you don’t switch from traditional options to take advantage of new technology.

Virtually all attendees to a conference or event are going to have some type of smartphone either using an Android or iOS system. You can take all the printed material out of your conference and switch to an Android conference app and the complimentary iPhone app to get rid of all that paper.

Welcoming Info and Attendee Package

At all conferences when you register or sign in you get the standard welcoming package. This typically includes multiple photocopied pages, all on different colored paper, most that are full of information that nobody bothers to read. In addition you will usually hand out information about the hosting group or organization, speaker evaluation forms and even lists of local restaurants and things to see and do in the area.

By taking all of this information and making it available under easy to find and navigate buttons on your Android conference app you not only go green but you also make the information more user friendly to access.

Surveys and Speaker Evaluations

Along with information for the attendees, your Android conference app can also help to get information from attendees to you and the conference committee. By having the app pre-loaded with speaker evaluations for each session participants can submit and online survey or short answer type of review immediately from their smartphone.

The system can be set to automatically add the participant’s information to the review or survey, perfect for quick follow-up if necessary. Or, you can choose to leave it optional for the review to be completed without identifying information. This saves on paper while also giving you immediate and accurate feedback as to what parts of the conference are making the biggest impact. For more information, visit
