Founder and President of the Board
With the EAZA Annual Conference fast approaching, Zoomarine is making some extra efforts towards turning this meeting even more green and sustainable.
As such, our 2022 Conference already has a fully dedicated web app(lication), where all attendees will have FREE, EASY, FAST and DETAILED access to all the information one may need:
- the conference programme (always on your smartphone, ipad, et cetera)
- direct contacts of the members of the Organizing Committee
- emergency contacts
- list of all the attendees (and their contacts, if one so desires)
- list of all the exhibitors (and their contacts)
- interactive maps of all relevant locations
- an online forum (for all those “house-keeping” messages…)
We will have printed copies of the traditional Programme… But this APP intends to be a flexible and ecological replacement for the printed booklet, allowing all attendees to be kept informed, and constantly updated throughout the 5 days event.
You CAN but DO NOT NEED to download the APP… Being a web application, those attendees who would like to use it just need to register and get direct access, without the hassle of installing it. Yes, it is VERY SIMPLE!
This tool also works when there is no internet access – the web APP saves all the data after the first download and updates it as soon as a connection is available again [yes, the venue will have fast-speed Wi-Fi].
Attendees can also personalize their own agenda simply by scrolling through the programme and highlighting their favourites (people, events, talks/meetings) – the software will remind you when you need to be somewhere and HOW TO GET THERE.
Since this conference is all about networking, the APP also allows attendees to easily search for other attendees via the “Delegates List” and, should you wish to send private/direct messages within the chat functionality [talk about making sure you do not miss that colleague with whom you really need to grab a coffee with, because of THAT specimen!…]
And because nowadays everything is just a click away, to access the APP, just log in with your e-mail and choose a password. If you have any difficulty logging in, do not hesitate to contact your favourite Portuguese team, at email@example.com
