The Top Six Reasons to Download the 21ST NCCAN Mobile App
As a reminder, there will be no printed programs available at the 21ST NCCAN. The conference program and meeting agenda will be located on the 21ST NCCAN website as well as the mobile app. The conference website and mobile app will be your key resources for navigating your way through the conference. The mobile app provides many benefits beyond material access. Some of the best reasons to download the app this year are outlined below:
  1. Event cost savings: When you download the mobile app, you’re telling the conference organizers that they can phase out paper printing. That adds up to a lot of savings, which can be passed on to the attendee through improving the quality of the location or making the event bigger and better overall.
  2. You’ll be more productive: The mobile app allows you to easily browse agendas and maps, including multiple schedule tracks. Everyone gets a productivity boost at events from the ability to quickly navigate all schedules—no matter how complex. Clicking into a schedule item gives you all the relevant details including presenters, handouts, links, and location. Your mobile app download will make you more aware of everything that’s happening in that moment.
  3. You’re participating in an eco-friendly conference: Downloading the mobile app is the best way to become more eco-friendly by supporting the reduction of printing demands. It is a whole new (green) world and we appreciate everyone playing their part.
  4. Your app is more accurate: Updates will be provided in real-time and interactive elements within the app let you find associated maps, downloads, and links.
  5. Important announcements: You will receive important announcements such as a room change, a surprise guest, or a last-minute opportunity. If you download the mobile app and allow push notifications, you will receive the most crucial information as quickly as possible.
  6. You’ll network differently: Are you planning to network? Download the mobile app to check in, find out who else is there, and exchange contact cards with the people you meet.
