6. Social networking apps
Nearly all attendees at trade shows and meetings are carrying some sort of mobile device. Social networking apps, such as Bizzabo and many others, allow them to use their phones and tablets to find each other and schedule meetings. Most of the apps ask users to sign in using their LinkedIn account, so the system can identify people with similar professional backgrounds and in some cases even suggest people to meet. Additional features with some apps include the ability to have private chats and to see future events for which those in attendance are registered.
