Find out if the conference has an app, and if they do, be sure in install it on your phone and/or tablet in advance of the conference.
Here is an example of the Networker app from Affiliate Summit that solves a problem many networking apps have – it includes a large photo to make it easy to identify the person you’re trying to meet at the conference.
A typical conference app will include the agenda, scheduling tools, networking functionality, speaker bios, and details on the sponsoring and exhibiting companies.
This can be invaluable during a conference, so you don’t have to keep a copy of the physical program.
Also, if there is a capability for networking, you should set up whatever you can in advance, so you can get optimal use of the app at the conference.
