ATLANTA — The Clean Show has released a new, free mobile app for Apple iOS- and Android-based smartphones that offers features such as locating exhibitors, planning a personalized show itinerary, and connecting with others via social media.
The free app can be downloaded from an individual’s device in the App Store or Market.
The June 20-22 event is expected to draw an estimated 10,000 laundry and dry cleaning industry attendees to New Orleans.
“In the age of technology, offering a smartphone app just makes sense,” says John Riddle, president of Riddle & Associates, the Clean Show’s management company. “We want our attendees and exhibitors to be able to stay connected before, during, and after the show and be able to do it while on the go.”
The app designed by event marketing and software company a2z Inc. is fully integrated with the Clean Show website, and with LinkedIn and Twitter.
Attendees who do not have a smartphone can still maximize their time at Clean 2013 by using the show website’s “My Itinerary” feature. Visitors can store in a personalized “Briefcase” their schedule of educational sessions and booths they wish to visit, as well as print out their “Itinerary” to bring with them.
Formally the World Educational Congress for Laundering and Drycleaning, the Clean Show is sponsored jointly by five national industry associations.
