World Appreciative Inquiry Conference App

,

 

Available now: iTunes, Android marketplaces.

The 2012 World Appreciative Inquiry Conference in Ghent, Belgium held in April is available for download from iTunes and Android markets.

Enhancing Attendees Experience

The app is the hand-held concierge of the conference. We had fun designing features to enhance the experience of conference goers that can’t be done in a standard conference program, particularly one that is traditional print.

Anticipation and Imagination

In the Appreciative World, we seek to discover the best of humankind, to build on strengths, to celebrate the talents of all participants, to anticipate and imagine what more can be done to make a situation, a person, a product excel.  We used that perspective in designing this app for the World Appreciative Inquiry Conference.

Sustained Connection and Learning

The Conference app is available before, during and after the event so that the learning and engagement continues well beyond the event itself.

Conference-app-system
