The 2017 Heartland Mobile App

The 2017 Heartland Mobile App

As we continually improve our web-based solutions and work to improve the attendee experience at the Heartland Conference, VGM Forbin is excited to announce the 2017 Heartland Mobile app. The concept and design behind the app are to allow each attendee to customize their experience. Looking to capture the 2017 Heartland theme, “Where Community Meets Opportunity”, we set out to provide the tools to help foster the Heartland community and offer ways for each attendee to maximize their opportunities throughout the conference.

Connecting Better than Ever: A new feature within the app allows attendees to better connect with each other, along with VGM Associates! Users can now call, email or save a contact directly from the directory.

Customize your Agenda: You spoke and we listened! Last year, Heartland attendees said that a customizable agenda was important.This year the VGM Forbin team designed a simple method to save any agenda item to the “My Agenda” section. Slide any agenda item to the left to reveal the option to save it to your personal agenda. To access the customized agenda, just press “My Agenda”. 

Transportation and Travel: We’re making transportation at Heartland a breeze this year with the Heartland app! Our teams worked to ensure attendees have the correct information regarding transportation in an understandable and user-friendly format. You will be able to request rides directly from the Heartland app and find the bus schedule which is organized by time and venue.

Show Map: In 2016, we introduced an interactive floor map and received overwhelmingly positive feedback from attendees. The 2017 show map features include access to vendor details, show specials, contact information, the ability to search, categorization and an improved zoom feature.
