The goal

An Event Experience that Brings Everyone Together

Bringing people together for networking was a top priority for Export@Google, especially since attendees came to Dublin from all over Europe. When it came time to build an event app, Executive Summit Manager at Google, Mike Emling, and his team felt they needed an event app that could serve up every bit of info to attendees.
