RIMS LAUNCHES 2013 MOBILE APP FOR ITS
ANNUAL CONFERENCE & EXHIBITION IN LOS ANGELES: APRIL 21 – 24
New App Integrates with Attendee Schedules, Offers Exhibit Hall Navigation & Downloadable Session Handouts
NEW YORK (March 28, 2013) —RIMS, the risk management society™, has announced the launch of its 2013 RIMS Mobile App designed for the Society’s Annual Conference & Exhibition in Los Angeles. New to this year’s app is the “My Schedule” feature that will sync attendees’ pre-selected sessions, an interactive navigation that pinpoints booth locations – and the best routes to them – in the Exhibit Hall, as well as the capability to download educational session handouts and rate sessions.
Compatible with Apple products, smartphones, Blackberry and other web-browser enabled devices, the 2013 RIMS Mobile App also:
· acts as a platform for RIMS to deliver late-breaking news and updates, detailed event information and speaker bios;
· provides exhibitors with a medium to distribute company announcements;
· integrates with RIMS’ Twitter feed and the Society’s other social media forums;
· features a “Friends” function that allows for the sharing of contact information between consenting app users;
· gives conference attendees a mechanism to evaluate sessions; and
· offers a comprehensive listing of the 400-plus exhibitors, an interactive expo map and city information.
“One of RIMS’ strategic goals emphasizes the importance of integrating progressive technologies and operations to ensure that we are providing the best resources for our constituencies,” said RIMS Executive Director Mary Roth. “This year’s mobile app has some great new features that will enhance the conference experience for our attendees while giving our exhibitors yet another medium to connect with the RIMS ’13 audience.”
