If you haven’t already, I highly recommend downloading the Greenbuild Mobile App, which offers a few new bells and whistles that will enhance your experience at the conference. As with many event-related mobile apps, it provides a full listing of educational sessions and exhibitors to help you navigate the conference. However, it also has additional features that piqued our interest:
From the exhibitor directory, you can create a customized list of companies and organizations you’d like to visit. The list can serve as a checklist and help you make the most of your time at the conference.
Attendees can easily engage in online conversations through integrated Twitter and Facebook feeds that are specific to Greenbuild.
The “Green Your Greenbuild” section offers tips on how to reduce the environmental impact of your visit. For example, it helped us easily connect to San Francisco’s rail system to get from the airport to the conference — which saved 20 pounds of emissions from entering the atmosphere.
Also, a new “Attendee to Attendee” section allows you to connect with others who have downloaded the app. From the online directory, you can easily search a list of attendees and send messages.
Of course, the best part of the app is that is eliminates the need for a printed directory. To learn more about the app, visit www.greenbuildexpo.org.
