Convergence Attendees Can Use New RAPS Mobile App for Info, Fun and Prizes
Posted 14 October 2015 | By
Starting today, you will be able to download the new RAPS Events mobile app for Apple and Android devices. The app has been customized for the 2015 Regulatory Convergence conference, taking place 24–28 October in Baltimore, where attendees will get the first chance to try it out. Convergence attendees will be able to use the app on mobile devices to find information about Convergence sessions, speakers, events and activities; share their own photos and comments; see updates from fellow attendees and earn prizes by completing certain activities while on site in Baltimore.
At its most basic level, the app will serve as an electronic event program, allowing attendees to curate their own schedules and access presentation handouts. It also plugs you in to the real-time conversation among attendees and provides a convenient directory of all attendees, exhibitors and speakers. In addition, the app can be connected with Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn accounts so you can share updates with your broader social networks beyond just those in attendance—all directly from the app. Don’t forget to use the #2015RAPS hashtag.
You also can use the app to earn prizes and enter drawings. Earn badges and points for completing certain activities, including posting updates and photos, checking in at various places, adding a profile photo, rating and reviewing sessions, and taking surveys. A leaderboard tracks all attendees’ points, and RAPS will award a prize to the attendee with the most. In addition, everyone who participates and earns points will be entered into a raffle.
There also will be prizes for renewing your RAPS membership on site and completing the post-Convergence survey. More information about prizes and how to earn them can be found in the “Earn Swag” section of the app.
To download the app for Apple iOS or Android devices, or to use a web-based version, go to this page, or search for “RAPS Events” in the app store. Then log in to the app with the email you used to register for the Convergence and the password: raps15.
