  • Building Your Dream App

    by Ruud Janssen

    My Dream App is a grand experiment to see what happens when you combine your current mobile app usage with the expertise of some of the brightest minds in the event industry (event camp attendees) and get great ideas and feedback.

    In this collaborative session we will look at some eccentric apps and dream up what future apps could do to make us more productive, attentive and insanely engaged.

    We think we’ll have ideas for 3 innovative, killer apps by the end of this event, and it’ll be up to you to help decide which ideas make the cut, and how they evolve throughout the event. Sit back and enjoy. This is going to an insanely great ride.

    In this session we will discuss how to ensure uptake and participation in your social mobile strategy using game mechanics and real world elements, and how to retain control over the user experience to make sure the technology works to your advantage: to enhance networking, to entertain audiences, to engage, educate and to transmit the message of your event.
