Having considered several event apps, Canongate Communications has chosen eventpowwow to promote their FutureScot series of events and to enhance the delegate experience before, during and after each event.
Cleverly combining event microsites and apps, eventpowwow gets its first outing on 25th May at EduTech 2017, which is being held at The Technology and Innovation Centre at Strathclyde University. The innovative event support tool was quick to prove its worth: “I’ve just had my first shot at creating an event in eventpowwow and I’m loving it!” said Shona McLean, Operations Manager at Canongate Communications.
Aimed at education professionals, the delegate-focused EduTech 2017 event features 9 interactive workshops and keynotes from some of the foremost international digital learning experts. Given the importance of the event, it will have national visibility through a full report in The Times Scotland.
EduTech 2017 will be followed by a series of FutureScot Digital City events in Dundee and Perth, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Stirling, Edinburgh and Inverness.
For each of these events, Canongate Communications staff are using eventpowwow to create a bespoke, fully responsive microsite, together with iOS and Android native apps.
Managing the process couldn’t be easier, thanks to eventpowwow’s unique central Content Management System (CMS). This allows administrators to create content and then publish it at the same time – to both the microsite and app.
Hamish Miller, MD at Canongate Communications, believes the flexibility and ease of use of eventpowwow really sets it apart from its competitors. “The great thing I have seen so far internally, everyone is taking part and uploading text, the site is neat and clean and it works! Based on this I think by tomorrow we will have all 7 sites created and live. Wish we’d met you a year ago!”
