Whether you’re at Texworld USA, Apparelsourcing USA or Home Textiles Sourcing Expo, there is no reason to not download the mobile app. It has just about everything related to the shows, and we really mean everything. From the floorplan down to exhibitor booth staff contact information, the apps has you covered. It’s a great way to maximize your attendance and network while at some of the biggest sourcing shows in the US.
Here are 5 reasons why you should download (and engage with) the app:
1. You can win a prize just by using it.
Both apps have a Leaderboard Challenge wherein users earn points by doing different things in the app like adding a profile picture, posting status updates, posting pictures, checking-in places, liking posts, and more. On the show’s last day, the Top 3 engaged users on each app will win the following Visa Gift Cards:
Rank #1: $150
Rank #2: $100
Rank #3: $50
2. You won’t get lost with it
Save time by using the interactive floorplan in the app. You can get specific directions from one exhibitor’s booth to another. Just simply go to Floorplan from the menu and select a point of location and desired destination.
3. It encourages endless networking
It gets busy and hectic during the shows and you may find minimal time to make a connection and meet some of the best people in the industry. The Attendees module lets you find an attendee and connect with them through the app’s messaging and social functionalities. It’s a great way to find out who you were sitting next to during a seminar or boot camp or find and contact an exhibitor, even after the show. Networking doesn’t have to stop at the end of the day or the show. You can bookmark an exhibitor or a potential contact for later reference.
4. You won’t miss anything during the event
With the app’s capabilities to view the schedule and add agendas, you won’t miss a seminar or a boot camp session. The Seminar Schedule has a detailed description and list of speakers. You can also access the list of speakers, review, and rate them in the Speakers module.
5. It’s a virtual social gathering
Remember to have fun during the shows and post plenty of status updates, give a sneak peak of your booth, or even give a look at your latest products for the show! The app encourages you to engage with everyone virtually and in real life! Now grab your phone and get engaged… you might win a $150 gift card!
