Justin Baer, CheckInEasy Founder
Q: First, a little background: how did you become involved in providing mobile app technology for events?
A: Our sister company, Charityhappenings.org, is the master calendar of nonprofit events happening around the country. We have so many great relationships with event planners around the country, and the topic of eliminating stapled Excel spreadsheets and ugly clipboards kept coming up. We set out to create a much more efficient way to run check-in, and built CheckInEasy.
Q: So, what is CheckInEasy?
A: An extremely easy-to-use guest list and event check-in iPad/iPhone app that was recently used by Google at their holiday party to check in 2,600 guests at the New York Public Library. We just launched but have already gotten some exciting traction with users such as Tory Burch, Emory University, Ferrari and Masarati of Cannes, Elle Fashion Week, Nestle Water, AVT Technology, and more.
Think events and conferences are no place for fun and games? EventMobi
™ – the world’s first smartphone-based platform designed for event professionals – challenges that notion by injecting entertainment and healthy competition into events.
The GamifyApp allows event planners to build and customize games to enhance the overall attendee experience and solve the common problems they are typically faced with, such as engaging attendees at educational sessions or compelling attendees to walk the tradeshow floor and interact with sponsors.
The GamifyApp integrates game mechanics into all aspects of the event experience – education, team‐building, and networking – by encouraging attendees to use their smartphone or tablet device to complete quizzes, solve challenges, and perform tasks.
