The goal

An event marketing strategy that drives engagement and excitement

When Majano and Founder John Siracusa planned #BankSocial’s inaugural conference in 2016, they knew they wanted an app that could make communication between all attendees not only practical, but especially organic. Majano and Siracusa immediately realized that Attendify could help engage event attendees, and make personal connections a lot smoother and easier.

Engagement by the numbers:
  • 119 Profiles
  • 205 Messages
  • 191 Photos

The result

An easy-to-use, DIY event app that was the focal engagement point of the conference

Using the app at the conference wasn’t really optional: attendees had to download the app in order to gain access to such things like the Agenda and Speakers. Majano and Siracusa even provided a demo session on how to use it. Majano and Siracusa also added a personalization layer to the app, mentioning and thanking every attendee individually to welcome them to the event. The app became a focal point of the conference.

  • The app gave attendees resources to share feedback about different sessions.

  • The private messaging made personal connection a lot smoother and easier.
