Whova is an award-winning event and conference app. It helps you gain insights about people you meet at events. Whova is one of the most widely used mobile apps by professionals for networking at conferences, trade shows, expos, summits, conventions, business meetings, corporate events, association events, and community gatherings. Whova, the Mobile Event App, has received the Event Technology Awards in 2016, 2017, and 2018, for three years in a row.

Watch this PREVIEW VIDEO to see how Whova can help you:

What makes Whova special? Whova's technology builds comprehensive profiles of attendees so you can view all attendee profiles before you even arrive at the event or conference. Plan in advance whom to meet at an event, what to talk about with each attendee, and reach out to others via in-app messages before, during, and after the event. You can also create casual meetups and arrange social activities with other groups of attendees. Whova revolutionizes event networking and significantly improves the ROI of attending events.

You can also use the Whova conference app to digitize and manage business cards you receive at events. Whova exceeds other business card reader apps like CamCard, CardMunch, ScanBizCards or Scannable etc. by automatically building full profiles using Whova's SmartProfile technology. This allows you to gain deep insights into your contacts' professional backgrounds, work experience, passions, and interests. You can also seamlessly connect with contacts online via LinkedIn and other platforms. Whova's business card scanning feature now supports cards in English, Chinese, and Korean.

- “It makes networking much more effective at this event with 500+ attendees. We no longer have to wander around wondering if we will bump into the person we really would like to meet. “

- “I could see who attended and easily follow up with the people after this entrepreneur/investor event”

- “I have seen other event apps but neither of them provided such valuable information of the attendees. “

- “This app has been fantastic for networking, announcements, agenda, etc., at this one-week conference!”

- “Another great feature of the Whova app is the ability to share slides and documents electronically.”

Suwannee Banjo Camp experience

This was the first year for Banjo Camp to go online. Of course, it was due to COVID. They used Whova and my experience as an attendee was OUTSTANDING! I liked it almost as much as attending the camp and, in some ways, it was a better experience. For example, I am from Massachusetts and I would not have traveled to attend this great camp in Florida. Also several of the sessions were recorded making it possible to see sessions that were scheduled at the same time. Plus I could review the same session several times. In addition, all documents were available several days before the class so I could review them ahead of time. Those are just a few of the reasons why I loved the online experience. I even suggested that next year, when COVID is hopefully over, the camp should adapt a hybrid model where some attendees are in person and, at the same time, others view the class online. I think it could be a good model for all music camps (and other types of camps) and it would enable many students to attend far away camps without the time and expense of travel. It would also increase the overall camp attendance.
BRAVO Whoa!!

Great event platform

I recently attended the first all-online version of the Pacific Seabird Group’s Annual Meeting. It was held on the Whova app, and the features supported on the app were great. Some improvements from the in-person meetings I’ve attended in the past are the ability to access the pre-recorded or live-recorded talks and posters, which you can access again if your notes aren’t perfect. The chat options in the live talks are great, and the speaker can focus on answering questions, rather than the room being held captive while one person has a “more of a comment” moment. The “agenda” interface was great, and the ability to set up a “my agenda” to compare to the whole conference was great. Getting in and out of “rooms” was simple, and I didn’t experience any lag or glitching when they opened.
All in all, I hope we use the platform to augment any in-person future meetings, especially since being able to access the other talks means you don’t have to miss anything during concurrent sessions. If we do future online or virtual conferences I think this would be a great app to organize it on.

Whova is the right choice for your awesome event!

Whova, a virtual platform, made my learning experience exciting! Finding topics, for our event, was easy and efficient. Using the Follow tab helped me to keep up with Topics that interested me the most. Finding valuable resources was just one click away! The search feature saved time when looking for a topic, small group, or an individual within a small group. When networking , I was able to bookmark a participant so that I could find them quickly and message /video chat with them worldwide! Though I tend not to interact with Organizers / Program Facilitators / Program Presenters, I did so on Whova because they seemed “close enough” to be reached. The Organizers/Facilitators/ Presenters interacted with participants real time and if participants reached out to them afterwards, we were notified that a response was given. I did not have to consider technology troubles because there were none. For that reason , I was able to fully grasp all that was available to me during the event! Whova is the right choice for an awesome event!
