CBA Events, an event management company based in Cumbria, will be releasing a container events app in 2018.

Some of the key features of the app include: personalised conference calendars, feedback surveys, audience polling, in app social media, exhibition floor plans and live questioning from workshops.

Tim Green, production and events manager at CBA Events, commented: “Over the last 12 months we have witnessed an increase in web streaming of events and meetings due to economic uncertainty and rising travel costs.

“The exciting development now, however, is that corporates have a renewed appetite for the on-site meeting but want the delegate experience to start in advance of the face-to-face element of an event. At the moment our event management team are moderating input and answering delegate queries from within the app.”
