Our Latest Project - Event Mobile Site

It isn't anything new, but we are just dipping our toes in the mobile water. We created our first app late last year. This year I am building a mobile website for attendees to visit while on site at our meetings. Instead of spending thousands of dollars, I am doing it myself in house. Very simply, I am just buying a cheap hosting package and installing wordpress. I found a great free mobile theme and just put together a simple site with the schedule, session info, hotel and travel info and a place for daily announcements. There is also a Sponsor page to give sponsors some extra recognition. Total cost (besides my time) $100 a year.

Hi Matt,
Can you elaborate or provide some specifics on this? We're looking into doing a mobile app, and are seeing what we can do for our conference. It sounds like your idea would be good to pursue.
Thanks,
Kara
