We're pleased to bring you the 2016 NEMA Conference App! Developed by Whova, a leading conference app producer, it's loaded with new features designed to help you make the most out of your conference experience.
Here's how to get started:
- Download the Whova App
On your mobile device, download the Whova app from the App Store or Google Play. Open Whova, then search for "98th Annual NEMA Conference." Click on the conference, then click "Join Event." If it asks for a password, enter "NEMA2016."
- Create a Conference Profile
This year's app is all about networking, so take a minute to create your profile. If you pre-registered for conference, you'll find your name already in the "Attendees" section with some basic information. To complete your profile and add a photo (so people can remember you), go to the "Me" button at the bottom of the home screen, then go to "Edit Profile" at the top. Now you're ready to connect with colleagues and send/receive in-app messages to coordinate conference schedules with friends. (To add your social media accounts, you need to type the exact url, i.e. "https://twitter. com/@YOURHANDLE".)
- Choose your Sessions
To browse the conference sessions, hit the "Agenda" button on the home screen. Check out session details and select your favorites for "Add to my schedule." For each session, you can check in, like the session, and add public comments. Click on "My Schedule" to see how your days are stacking up.
- Scan Business Cards
When you create your profile you can scan your business card to exchange with new friends during the conference (and beyond). It's quick, easy, and you save paper!
- Share Photos/Link to Social Media
Upload your best conference photos to share with fellow attendees. Tweet about your experience from the shared in-app Twitter account (go to "Twitter" on the home screen) or from your own account.
