Hanley Wood Launches App for International Surface Event 2014
Hanley Wood recently launched a new mobile app for The International Surface Event 2014. The free app now is available for iPhone, iPad, Android and BlackBerry users and is sponsored by FCA Network.
The International Surface Event will take place Jan 27-30 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas.
The event is a combination of three trade shows: SURFACES, StonExpo, and TileExpo. The new mobile app covers all three shows and can be found by searching International Surface Event in the Apple App Store, Google Play or BlackBerry World.
“The Event mobile app is designed to make attendees’ show experiences even more productive,” said Amie Gilmore, associate show director, SURFACES | StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas | TileExpo.
She added, “It’s a very functional tool for accessing records, maximizing the show floor experience, and helping to easily schedule time at The International Surface Event.”
As a new feature this year, users of the mobile app now can register for The International Surface Event directly from their device. Users also can search the exhibitor list, access the floor plan and search education sessions and events taking place at the three shows.
Other features include a calendar, show alerts during the event and social media integration. In addition, users can access their hotel reservations and information on local restaurants and attractions in Las Vegas.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
