One of our goals for this year’s BlackBerry Live conference is to integrate mobile technology not just in the discussions, sessions, and resources – but into the actual conference itself to help keep attendees closely plugged into all of the action.
Near Field Communication (NFC)
One of my all-time favorite technologies, Near Field Communication (NFC) will be integrated into BlackBerry Live in a big way. You’ll be able to scan into BlackBerry Live and BlackBerry Jam sessions and interact with aspects of the venue using the BlackBerry Live Conference App, but that’s just the beginning. You’ll also be able to share contact information with sponsors, scoop up links to resources and web sites, and take advantage of all that BlackBerry 10 has to offer when it comes to NFC.
BlackBerry Live Conference App
Shortly before BlackBerry Live the Mobile Conference Guide app will be available in BlackBerry World for you to download. This will be your ultimate conference guide, including a wide range of features:
- Find sessions, speaker, sponsor, and event details
- Receive event update messages
- View the conference agenda and floor plan
- Build and edit your conference schedule
- Scan into sessions using Near Field Communication (NFC)
- Complete conference and session surveys
- Share your information with conference sponsors using NFC
