Staging Connections Releases Cumulus Event App
Audio-visual and event services company, Staging Connections, has launched Cumulus, its latest mobile event app that allows clients to create a tailored solution with a range of features to streamline their management process and maximize event ROI.
With Cumulus, event organizers can manage their own event-specific content via a user-friendly interface so that they can make changes instantly, while event attendees have easy access to important event information from their smartphone or tablet.
Event information accessible on Cumulus includes venue details, floor plans, maps, event program, speaker biographies, transportation, sponsor information and exhibitor listings. In addition, the app is complimentary to all Staging Connections event services partners.
The 2018 Australasian Hotel Industry Conference and Exhibition (AHICE), held May 2-3 at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne, Australia, was one of the debut events to take Cumulus for a trial run.
According to Lara Chrystal, marketing manager of Interpoint Events, a division of Intermedia, the app was central to the event providing attendees with the program, exhibitor listing and enabling interactivity and feedback throughout every session at the event.
“We loved the new app because it provided a level of interactivity between the floor and the speakers never achieved before,” Chrystal said. “It took audience engagement at our event to a new level.”
During an event, Cumulus’ modern design and practical user experience enables live polling, links to social media channels and access to an event Bulletin Board to hear or download the latest happenings at the event.
Delegates also have direct access to the event program to bookmark sessions they wish to attend to ensure they don’t miss out. Sessions can be rated after the event and feedback downloaded instantly.
Attendees can download Cumulus for free through the event organizer and create their own personalized profile to connect and network with colleagues who are also attending an event.
“Cumulus empowers our clients to manage their own content and make changes instantly, so attendees always have the latest information,” explained Tony Chamberlain, managing director of Staging Connections.
He continued, “The app is completely customizable for the event’s styling and branding to be added to the design. This is a game-changer – we don’t charge our clients for Cumulus when they partner with us for event services, so every client has the opportunity to offer an exclusive app to their attendees.”
