Event Planners Can Now Build Event Apps for a Simple, Flat Price
Los Angeles, CA (MAY 2013) - Attendify recently launched a mobile app platform that makes it easier and more affordable to create fully customized, native apps for events. Using Attendify, conference and event planners can create a mobile event guide, or a powerful social app that helps attendees network more effectively. Regardless of the package selected, Attendify offers something other custom app providers don’t: flat pricing with no hidden fees or sponsorship revenue sharing.
Many event planners investigate building a custom app, but drop the idea when they get a quote for well over $5,000, or are offered confusing revenue share offers that send a portion of the event’s sponsorship revenue to the app developer.
“We kept hearing the same thing from event planners, they wanted to know exactly what it would cost to get a mobile app built” says Attendify Co-Founder Michael Balyasny, “that’s why we created two simple packages with flat pricing and a straightforward list of what’s included. Event planners can create an app in minutes, and have it published in the App Store and Google Play within a few days” continues Michael.
Attendify has helped more than 300 conferences and events go mobile with one of two packages:
1. Guide App ($399/year) – replaces your printed event guide, saving time and money. The Guide App includes features such as a schedule, speaker and sponsor profiles, maps, and much more.
2. Social App (Beta) ($599/year) – features all the capabilities of the Guide App, but also allows attendees to create profiles, send messages to one another, share photos, and it gathers social content in a single activity feed.
Both packages include fully customized, native, iPhone and Andorid apps, as well as a HTML5 web app. Attendify is constantly improving their product with the goal of making the lives of event planners a little easier, and the event experience for attendees more productive. Recently the company rolled out a free content import service, which allows event planners to upload an Excel file, and Attendify’s content management team will take care of importing it into the app.
