DALLAS – October 21, 2013 – AVT Event Technologies, Inc., one of the leading technology providers of innovative in-house audiovisual, staging, and production services at hotels and resorts nationwide, today announced the introduction of Cumulus™, a landmark mobile application (app) that allows meeting planners to create tailored event apps free of charge for their attendees when partnering with AVT.
This innovative new app answers the need for planners to provide event attendees with convenient access to valuable event information from any internet-connected smart device. Users will be able to load event-specific content for up to ten user zones including: Facility, Agenda, Speakers, Links, Downloads, Attendees, Bulletins, Transit, Sponsors and Video. For planners, Cumulus allows for full control over their app with quick and easy updates to content such as: adding/removing session topics, speaker bios and photos, or uploading additional multimedia, at any time. Meeting planners can also take advantage of convenient Cumulus Technical Support Packages to help build out customized app content.
Cumulus was developed and rigorously tested over a twelve-month period to ensure it provided a best-in-class app experience with unmatched functionality, speed and content capabilities for events of all sizes. “With Cumulus, we&aposre able to give meeting planners a long-awaited mobile app option that integrates seamlessly into the attendees’ event experience,” said Chris Walsh, Vice President, Sales Development for AVT. “Creating this new AVT tool and providing it as a standard option free of charge to our customers was very important to us. We also recognized that our Cumulus app gives all AVT hotel partners a distinct advantage in their sales cycle.”
The Cumulus app is self-guided through an instructional video and is available at no cost to event and meeting planners when they use AVT exclusively for their event technology needs. AVT can also create a demo app for meeting planners interested in previewing the features and functionality for potential event customers.
