The 17NTC Conference begins in a few weeks here in Washington DC, and we are proud the 17NTC app launches this week. This app helps you organize your conference experience, showing at a glance the sessions and speakers schedule, locations, extra events, and other ways to connect with your colleagues. For the first year Community IT Innovators is sponsoring this app and I’ll say it is a pretty cool tool.
You can download the app and learn more about using it here.
The 17NTC app lets you:
- View session and speaker information
- Add sessions to create your own personal agenda
- Check out exhibitors ahead of time
- Connect with other attendees through the activity feed or direct messages
- Get real-time alerts during the conference
Being a conference for nonprofit technology geeks, there’s the conference app, an online conference forum, and social media where the conference is using #17NTC. Which to use? During the conference NTEN is encouraging attendees to use the app and the app’s Activity Feed and the #17NTC Twitter hashtag for real-time conversations. The online forum tends to be the most active before and after the conference and is a good place for information on attending as you prepare and pack.
Registration is sold out, although if you missed out there is a waitlist. Many of us from Community IT Innovators will be attending, and you can get in touch @CommunityIT while at the conference. I look forward to meeting many of you!
