Guidebook + OpenWater Conference App for In-Person and Virtual Attendees
The Guidebook – OpenWater partnership simplifies event management for organizations and associations. Collect and manage conference materials such as abstracts, posters, and attendee registration in OpenWater, then send that information to a conference website, mobile app, or virtual platform to create a hybrid experience.
Bridging the Gap Between In-Person and Virtual with Mobile
Academic conference managers and association annual meeting planners have shifted their focus to providing an in-person conference with a virtual component. One of the biggest challenges when organizing a large-scale conference with multiple concurrent sessions can often be collecting speaker materials, and managing abstract submissions.
Associations rely on OpenWater’s Event Cloud Platform to host and organize their virtual events. As more associations are turning back to in-person events with a virtual component OpenWater and GuideBook have partnered to create a conference app for associations and societies that host large-scale annual events.
