An Event App from Webex Events is a digital space where in-person attendees can find information about your event, such as where sessions and exhibitors are located in the venue and details about speakers and sponsors. For virtual attendees, the Event App is your event's virtual venue where people watch live streams, network with each other, and interact with your Event App content.
With an Event App from Webex Events, you can provide a seamless and engaging digital experience while fostering sponsorship opportunities, brand loyalty, attendee networking, and more!
An Event App puts your event's live schedule 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.
The interactive and dynamic Maps feature makes it easy for your attendees to get where they need to go. Link Sessions, sponsors, speakers, exhibitors, and other items to locations for easy reference and increased exposure.
In addition to these features, you can attach documents and videos to Sessions, speakers, sponsors, and more. Advanced search features mean that users can find the information they need, when they need it.

The Event App attendee profile acts as a "digital business card". With a filterable attendee list, people can effortlessly network with those who share their interests.
Using the revolutionary Shake & Connect feature, attendees simply shake their phones, discover people nearby, and send connection requests with the tap of a button. It's as easy as a handshake! 🤝
Attendees can chat with their connections inside the Event App with one-on-one texts, video chats, or group chats. The person who starts a group chat or video call can invite anyone they're connected to, whether or not the invitees are connected to one another. 👍
Exchanging photos, scheduling meetings, and using video chat are simple! Our Attendee Networking with Webex Events article gives an overview of all the ways attendees can connect and interact with each other in your Event App.
As a tool to enhance engagement, the Event App is an event organizer's dream come true. With over 20 features to choose from, there's a lot to discover. Here are our favorite features that get attendees excited, engaged, and eager for more.
The Wall feature
Give attendees a social feed that acts as your event's own social network. The Wall feature lets Event App users post text and pictures and "like" and comment on discussion threads. This private social space makes it easy for you to build community within and around your event.
Create rich, engaging live streams without the hassle of complex software and encoders. Activate Webex Events Streaming for Agenda Sessions and Live Stream features to use our built-in Production Studio and automatic closed captions.
Use our Polling and Q&A features to collect and showcase questions and insights from attendees. Use a Custom Tab to embed Slido, Miro, and more in the Web App and link them to the Mobile App experience.
The Game feature
Events are at their best when they bring people together and inspire them to engage. The Game feature helps you accomplish both. Start by rewarding attendees for what they already do, like checking in. Build game challenges that promote sponsor engagement, session attendance, and more.
Use Announcements to send your attendees push notifications that link to features and items so attendees always know what's new and exciting in the Event App! Encourage attendees to participate in Live Polling, Q&A, and surveys, then watch completion rates rise. 👍
