• DoubleDutch Offers New Direct Messaging and Channel Features

     
    FROM THE Spring 2016 ISSUE
     

Fostering conversation is the goal of DoubleDutch’s newest app update, which offers direct messaging between attendees and different channels for discussions. The app’s new Activity Feed allows users to upload photos, comments and more.

“[The Activity Feed] is the heart and soul of the app where we’re giving attendees the opportunity to express themselves,” says Emily He, chief marketing officer. “Most event apps are static apps that just contain content such as the agenda/schedule, list of speakers or exhibitors, map of the venue, but don’t provide attendees the ability to interact and engage with each other.”

Attendees can use either topic channels or session channels. The real-time discussions connect attendees and encourage a new level of participation for event planners and participants.

The travel season is here and while Idaho Tourism (Visit Idaho) celebrates the uptick in tourism, the bureau also has a message for visitors: Travel With Care. That’s the tagline of a new campaign that emphasizes the importance of caring for yourself, caring for others and caring for Idaho to preserve the opportunities for adventure in the Gem State for years to come. 

 

Bizzabo’s newest on-site suite of event software solutions is a custom-tailored way for event marketers to strengthen first impressions during the check-in process for attendees.
