Yes, all iOS devices are fully supported in the EventPilot conference app, including EventPilot Express. All apps are designed as universal apps to work on phones and tablets.

While rush jobs are possible, and we could get your conference app ready within 48 hours, we recommend starting a project at least 6-8 weeks before you are planning to launch the event app, typically 4 weeks or more before the meeting. This allows you to use the meeting app as a marketing communication tool at least 4 weeks before the event. You will also have sufficient time to create beautiful imagery, collect speaker images and sponsor ads, and prepare all the content or set up connection to your database. You will have a chance to try the event app before App Store submission about 6 weeks before your event.

Please ensure to enroll into the Apple Developer or Enterprise program as soon as possible since Apple verification can take up to 3 weeks.
