San Francisco, CA (September 28, 2012)—The Audio Engineering Society has bowed its own Convention app for mobile devices, helping attendees and exhibitors alike to plan and get around the upcoming 133rd AES Convention, to be held October 26-29 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
Coordinated by AES CIO Steve Johnson, the app delivers instant access to every aspect of the event, from fast-breaking program updates to comprehensive details on technical programs, tours and special events. The App also features a user-friendly option for locating exhibitors on the show floor, even when Internet access isn’t available.
“Another new feature is clickable presenter names, enabling rapid access to background credits for every session participant. Changes for the exhibition are even more dramatic,” Johnson says. ”The App provides detailed information on each exhibitor, and accelerates downloading of brochures, videos and news releases. Another new button jumps users directly to specific booth locations on the show floor map. It also provides convention news bulletins, a Twitter feed following the #AESorg hashtag, and much more.”
The AES 133rd Mobile Convention is available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android. Blackberry and other Smartphone users can utilize a mobile web version optimized for those devices.
In addition, the AES has developed a wide range of Exhibitor opportunities designed to help their companies stand out from the crowd. Options range from uploading logos and brochures, to banner ads and video presentations. More information can be found on the San Francisco exhibitor website.
