4 Tips on Using Event Mobile Apps

Lucy Smith September 21, 2018

When you’re hosting a grand event, an event mobile app can come in handy. This application development hosts a lot of features: from booking a ticket to the event to hotel reservations.

In today’s article, I will go over some tips when using an event mobile app.

It Should Have Amazing Features

One way to tell if an event app is good is it has a lot of features that stakeholders can take advantage of.

For example, the stakeholder can buy tickets directly from within an app (which gives them something, like a QR code, which can be scanned during the event) and it should also have a feature that allows them to book hotel reservations as well.

Having all of these things in one app is amazing since the people who are attending the event won’t have to use multiple applications to do the same thing.

Think Like a Stakeholder to Know Their Needs

If you are developing an event app, how will you know which features to include to make it great? Well, you first have to think like an attendee.

What are the things that you might do if you’re going to the event? Buying tickets, hotel reservations, and the ability to call a ride are just some useful things that you can include in your app.

But, it doesn’t have to stop there. Again, thinking like a stakeholder will allow you to know what things to include in your application.

Create the App Way Before the Event

If you develop an event app that is just 4 weeks before the event, then that will not make it popular. You see, it takes time to disseminate this app to the different stakeholders and 4 weeks is just too short.

As much as possible, release the app 12 weeks prior to the event so that everyone will have a chance to get the app and use it accordingly.

Strive to Make the Experience Better

The most important thing of all is that you should strive to make the attendees’ experience better.

For instance, create an app that allows them to comment about each speaker (after their speech, of course), allow them to ask questions using the platform so that those questions will be relayed and answered by the speaker, allow stakeholders to book a ride or even a hotel, and so on.

Basically, you want to make the app a one-stop shop for everything that they would need. Furthermore, you have to make sure that the app can still be utilized when they’re offline.

I understand that there are some features that would require network connectivity, but there are also some functionalities that can be used even in offline mode. Be sure to incorporate those as well.


Event mobile apps should be convenient in the sense that stakeholders can do a lot of things by using it.

Allowing them to book tickets, make hotel reservations, and ask the speaker some queries are just some features that are good to incorporate in an event app.
