We invested a lot of know-how into the developoment of the app for congresses, trade fairs, sports and cultural events. Now we have an attractive offer for event and congress organisers that also raises the quality of events taking place in Vorarlberg.
Events Vorarlberg App for event organisers
The Vorarlberg Events App was premièred during the World Gymnaestrada 2019 in Vorarlberg. With more than 21,000 downloads, its launch was highly successful and so development of the app for trade fairs, congresses, cultural and sporting events has been continued with the updated version now being made available through a licensing model to event and congress organisers in Vorarlberg.
Events are multifaceted. They revolve around a variety of topics, objectives and visitor groups. Convention Partner Vorarlberg has worked with the software developer Eventmobi to develop an innovative app for events in response to a feasibility study that was carried out by the University of Applied Sciences Vorarlberg that confirmed the need for digital communication platforms at events and congresses. The app is based on four individually adaptable packages that focus on sports events, cultural events, trade fairs and congresses. These packages constitute the basis and serve to ensure efficient communications between participants, organisers, partners and the providers of tourism services.
The Events Vorarlberg app is a hybrid solution that is not only accessible through web browsers but that is also available for download from app stores. The apps for the specific events are embedded in the Events Vorarlberg App (so-called App-in-App solution), which also makes it possible to create individual designs. The app is available to download from the relevant stores for end devices running the Android or IOS operating systems.
Extensive communication offer
The app does not only provide such basics as detailed programmes, speaker portraits and particulars about the location but also extensive information about the surroundings, starting with restaurants to places of interest and timetables for public transport. It is possible for participants to rate all the programme items and presentations, which in turn provides the organisers with valuable information for future events. One of the app’s other main features is that it allows participants to communicate and network with each other.

Simple licensing model
A licensing model allows event and congress organisers to use the app for one year per event. Organisers are responsible for filling and maintaining the content following an online training to familiarise them with the app’s back-end. All content relating to Vorarlberg (points of interest, integration of public transport, etc.) is provided by Convention Partner Vorarlberg. Four packages with different functions constitute the model’s basis. Additional functions may be individually extended.
