Santa Rosa, Calif. – March 29, 2012 ATIV Software today announced the availablility of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry’s (AAPD) 2012 conference application, built on the dynamic EventPilot conference app platform. Designed for pediatric dentistry professionals attending the AAPD Annual Session in San Diego May 24th-May 27th, 2012, the EventPilot conference app is constructed to provide efficient and offline access to all event medical abstracts and e-posters before, during and after the event.
By adopting this powerful new event conference app for their attendees, the AAPD is at the forefront of technological advances in event data management. All conference materials will be available on the EventPilot medical meeting app for attendees’ personal mobile devices, which will simplify access, navigation, and management of this large annual gathering of pediatric dentistry professionals.
“We are excited that for the first time, we’re able to offer the best and most professional conference app to our members with EventPilot,” said Tonya Almond, AAPD Director of Meeting Services. “We want to be sure that our attendees have an app that allows them the opportunity to review conference materials and research abstracts and latest changes on their smartphones and mobile devices. With the EventPilot conference app, we have enhanced the professional and rich learning environment our members have come to expect.”
Native EventPilot conference apps provide convenient access to all medical meeting related information from a personal schedule builder to session materials and exhibitor booth locations. Unlike web apps or USB sticks, conference attendees have full offline access to up-to-date event information, abstracts, e-posters and contacts. The EventPilot medical meeting app is available long before, during and after the event so that the learning and engagement continues well beyond the end of the meeting.
“EventPilot medical meeting apps expand the event experience from merely accessing scientific meeting programs to managing the event experience, providing full access to the latest research papers, engaging with other attendees and increasing peer-to-peer learning,” stated Silke Fleischer, CEO and co-founder of ATIV Software. “Pediatric dentist professionals at AAPD’s annual gathering will experience new powerful time saving features and robust offline access to scientific abstracts with the EventPilot conference app.”
