An Event App puts a live schedule of your event at attendees' fingertips, plus many features designed to inform, direct, engage, and delight. With the Agenda feature, create a rich, detailed schedule of your event with live or pre-recorded video, chat, Q&A, polling, and custom embedded content in each Session. Attendees can add Sessions to build their own personal agenda, take notes, keep track of one-on-one meetings with their connections, and even export their agenda to their phone calendar.
