Alright, alright alright­ – PCMA Convening Leaders 2017 was a powerful way to kick off 2017!

This year’s event was a success from start to finish. From Matthew McConaughey’s inspirational opening keynote, through four days of education and networking in the heart of Austin, Texas.

Austin was a tremendous host, and the Austin Convention Center seemed to pull out all the stops, but the vastness of Texas reigns true; the ACC is no exception.

networkingAs a proud PCMA event technology partner, we got the chance to see first hand how the mobile event app helped both attendees and organizers make the most of their Convening Leaders experience.

Suppliers, vendors – meeting planners and CEO’s alike – all spent their time collaborating, exchanging ideas, and certainly enjoying more than a good time or two on Sixth Street. And the mobile app was there to help connect people, keep them up to date on all of the events and activities and get them where they needed to be.

Thankfully, most of the attendees took advantage of the official PCMA Convening Leaders mobile app, an all-encompassing resource for participants and show organizers alike. During an event like Convening Leaders, it’s important for our team to get feedback on the mobile app, even during the show. We spoke with several attendees that took advantage of what was out there, and were thankful to have the mobile app as a navigator.

“Austin did an amazing job hosting Convening Leaders 2017,” said attendee Natalie Hinman from the Orthopedic Research Society. “With such a large convention center, navigating the center and the meeting program would have been a challenge without the floor plans and schedule in the app.”

She notes that with keynote sessions, breakout sessions, brain dates and TechCentral spread throughout, it was important to know where you’re heading and what is happening next.

“I loved creating my own schedule and adding in my own appointments. Connecting with fellow attendees through the message center was great for not having to fish out business cards in hallways or at receptions, and taking notes in the app was super helpful.”
