The CONCRETE Times • FEB 2015 UK CONCRETE SHOW - SMART DEVICE APP USE THE APP AND MAKE YOUR DAY! APP USE AT UKCS2014 WAS LESS THAN HOPED FOR BUT IMPROVEMENTS WITH THE NEW 2015 APP AND A GREAT ‘HOW TO’ VIDEO ON YOU TUBE SHOULD IMPROVE 2015’s TAKE UP Dropping a paper guide in favour of a digital app was a bold move and whilst satisfied overall with the results of the experiment, show organisers, Marwood Events, felt that there were aspects of the experience that they could improve for 2015 - so they did! THE UKCS2015 APP WORKS WITH ANY WEB ENABLED DEVICE There is no download required from the Apple Store or the Android Market, any device that has a browser connects to the web, can use this app. Just copy and paste this link into your browser - http://eventmobi.com/ukccs2015/ - press return and you are in business, desktop or laptop computer, tablet or smartphone. It’s simple to save the app to your phone or tablet desktop - for the iPhone, for example, at the foot of the browser page, tap the “box with vertical arrow icon, then select the + Add to home screen icon and, hey presto, an app icon is on your home screen. PLEASE WATCH THE YOU TUBE ‘HOW TO’ VIDEO - ONLY 79 SECONDS We’ve produced a great little 1’ 19 sec ‘how to use the app’ video and you can view it on You Tube now by following this link - http://youtu.be/56lqipd4C4U It’s very much in the style of the superb Apple ads - just pictures and captions with a light tune in the background - and puts over the essentials on using the app quickly and clearly. An investment of 79 seconds of your life will greatly enhance your show visit experience, even if you belong to the “I can’t be bothered with all this stuff” brigade! GET MORE FROM THE APP - LOG IN AND BUILD YOUR PROFLE All app users should log in by entering their email address then spend a few minutes building their profile - this will greatly enhance your app experience, allowing you to: • Create your own schedule • Participate in polls and submit questions during sessions 4 • Network with other attendees, arrange meetings at the show (this function can be disabled if you wish) • Take notes during sessions • Mark favourite exhibitors prior, during and post show. Seminars - Check what seminars are on, when and where, see details about the subjects and the speaker. Interactive Floor Plan Locate the stand you are looking for in the show hall quickly and easily (this feature will only be activated a few days prior to the show). ENJOY A LIVE, INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE To try to minimise the disruption caused by the use of the tannoy in the hall, we plan to use alert messages sent to the app, in lieu of some announcements. It’s like receiving a text message - they’ll remind you of things like demos or seminars about to start, restaurant menus and or not to forget to collect your FREE parking pass before you leave for the car park. It’s a great facility - please take advantage of it. The opening screen of the You Tube ‘How to’ video for the show app
