Annual Meeting Daily Bulletin Preview and Mobile Event App Now Available!

The Daily Bulletin preview issue and the Mobile Event APP can jump-start your meeting experience by drawing attention to sessions and meeting attractions waiting for you. (At left is the QR code to download the app; if it doesn't work, click here for more information.)

The annual meeting app will provide attendees with all of the information and real-time updates they need to navigate the event via their mobile devices. Content areas of the app include information on sessions and exhibitors, maps, daily news, and feeds. The app is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, and some Blackberry devices as well as a WAP application for all other web-enabled mobile devices.

Five issues of The Daily Bulletin will be produced, including the preview edition posted online today that highlights scientific sessions, special events, and local attractions. The Daily Bulletin will be available in digital and print versions. Digital viewers will be able to add notes, bookmark pages, and share content via e-mail and social media. Print copies of the bulletin will be available at the convention center, and there will be door-to-door distribution at selected meeting hotels. The bulletin is also "going mobile." The mobile edition will showcase selected articles from each print issue along with daily schedule information. Viewers of the mobile edition will be able to comment on and share articles.
