“EventPilot conference apps are specifically designed for scientific and medical meetings like SAGES so attendees can manage complex schedules of research abstracts and poster presentations,” said Silke Fleischer, Co-Founder and CEO of ATIV Software. “The SAGES Annual Meeting attracts over 2,400 surgeons and EventPilot has proven to be the best mobile event app for personalizing their conference experience.”

In addition to a visual scheduling tool that syncs across multiple devices, the EventPilot mobile meeting app is a key communication tool for attendees, planners, and speakers alike. Meeting planners keep their attendees knowledgeable of sessions and events nearby with location alerts. Presentation moderators can publish answers to attendee questions directly in the app at any time with the question and answer module. Attendees can keep in touch with other attendees via the in-app messenger tool that allows for the exchange of ideas without needing to exchange personal contact information.
