Leading Event App Provider to Boost Networking with Mobile Technology
SAN FRANCISCO and DENVER – Dec. 5, 2013 – DoubleDutch, the leading provider of mobile event applications, today announced a partnership with the Gay and Lesbian Victory Institute to provide the mobile app for the upcoming conference LGBT Leaders 2013 taking place in Denver Dec. 5-8. The event brings together hundreds of LGBT leaders in government, politics, advocacy, business and community organizations to discuss current issues and share ideas.
“We’ve done a ton of research on event applications, and DoubleDutch has the best solution by far,” said C.J. Stermer, director of meetings and events at the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund & Institute. “DoubleDutch has the most comprehensive feature set, and we loved the social networking functionality integrated into the platform. This is the first year we’ve completely eliminated paper guides, and we are thrilled.”
The LGBT Leaders Association will use their DoubleDutch-powered app to engage attendees with sessions and content throughout the conference. When attendees interact with the app – for example to browse programming, post comments, or share photos – they earn points to move up the leaderboard and win prizes. DoubleDutch has built-in networking features that also allow guests to easily connect over shared interests and see what is trending during the event. To keep LGBT leaders informed of schedule changes, conference organizers can update sessions and send push notifications through the easy-to-use content management system.
“The social features of our LGBT Leaders Conference app are perfect for fostering a close-knit community around the event and for continuing conversations long after the event ends,” said Lawrence Coburn, CEO of DoubleDutch. “We support the LGBT mission and are proud to provide a premium solution that organizations like the Gay and Lesbian Victory Institute can accommodate.”
DoubleDutch has extensive experience powering event applications for associations including the American Hospital Association, American Heart Association, the Society for Applied Learning Technology, and more.
