Conferencing Applications

Conferencing Applications

Conferencing applications may be used as an umbrella term for various types of online collaborative services including web seminars ("webinars"), webcasts, and peer-level web meetings.

Services may allow real-time point-to-point communications as well as multicast communications from one sender to many receivers. It offers data streams of text-based messages, voice and video chat to be shared simultaneously, across geographically dispersed locations. Conference application includes meetings, training events, lectures, or presentations from a web-connected computer to other web-connected computers.

Typical features of a web conference include:

  • Slideshow presentations - where images are presented to the audience and markup tools and a remote mouse pointer are used to engage the audience while the presenter discusses slide content.
  • Live or streaming video - where full motion webcam, digital video camera or multi-media files are pushed to the audience.
  • VoIP (conference call applications) - real time audio communication through the computer via use of headphones and speakers.
  • Web tours - where URLs, data from forms, cookies, scripts and session data can be pushed to other participants enabling them to be pushed through web-based logons, clicks, etc. This type of feature works well when demonstrating websites where users themselves can also participate.
  • Meeting Recording - where presentation activity is recorded on the client side or server side for later viewing and/or distribution.
  • Whiteboard with annotation - allowing the presenter and/or attendees to highlight or mark items on the slide presentation. Or, simply make notes on a blank whiteboard.
  • Text chat - For live question and answer sessions, limited to the people connected to the meeting. Text chat may be public (echoed to all participants) or private (between 2 participants).
  • Polls and surveys - allows the presenter to conduct questions with multiple choice answers directed to the audience.
  • Screen sharing/desktop sharing/application sharing where participants can view anything the presenter currently has shown on their screen.

There are different types of web conferencing:

Webinars. In webinars, on one hand the presenters can share information with the participants and on the other the participants can respond or ask questions regarding that information. Though, this web conference option shows possibility of interaction between the presenter and the audience but to a limited extent.

Webcast. It is web conference's another type that is similar to a broadcast made on TV but both of them are different from each other on the ground that this broadcast can be done by using web instead of a TV. Though webcast can be broadcasted to large number of people as a time still there are least or no possibilities of interaction between the presenter and the participants in this format of web conferencing.

Web Meetingand Event App for conferences. The virtual meetings on the internet fall in this category of web conferencing. It makes the participants in the meeting interactive to each other. The flow of information can be both way, forward and backward i.e. from the host to the audience as well as from the audience to the host.

Online Collaboration. Online collaboration format of web conferencing allows you to view shared files, documents and papers live along with making changes in them to modify their style instantly on the internet. The participants of a web based online collaboration can do much more than seeing and speaking to each other on internet.

Online Presentations.  Web conferencing can also be used for presenting presentations online. The online presentations can be presented online with the help of web based chats, streaming videos or audios and slide shows. The participants have to log in to the web conference to see these presentations. They can also interact with the presenter of the presentation through web based chat or through mobile application conference.

F.A.Q. about Conferencing Applications

What are the benefits of online conferencing?

Internet conference has its own nuances and features in contrast to the traditional conference. And most importantly, it also has a number of obvious and very significant advantages, namely:

  • wide audience coverage - users of various categories who are remote control of a computer via the Internet by potential consumers of goods and services;
  • independence from geographical location - users from different cities and even countries can participate in Internet conferences, which allows to significantly expand the boundaries of business in the world wide web;

formation of positive public opinion among participants regarding the services of remote control of a computer or products, which is achieved using special methods.

The Benefits of Conference Event Apps

A More Personalized Experience

Conference planning app can solve the common problems that many attendees run into at large events. According to pewresearch.org another important fact to consider is that “More than half of smartphone owners say they get news alerts on their phones” which is largely due to notifications from apps downloaded on their smart device, so why wouldn’t you include apps at your events? Planning and event apps give the attendee a personalized experience by allowing the attendee to take notes and mark which sessions and exhibits they want to see.

Track Users

Event apps give you the ability to track the users to see what they like and dislike so you can continually improve your event products and cater to the needs of your attendees. Most event apps track attendees by GPS, badges, or the most frequently used low-energy Bluetooth device. 

Provides Instant Feedback

Best event apps for conferences provide instant analytic feedback. Most conference event apps track which booths the attendees favored, how long they listened to the audio tours at each exhibit, and overall what topics or things interest them the most.  You can also set up polling to get the specific feedback you want from your attendees.

Push Notifications

Including event apps at your next conference gives you the ability to send push notifications if the schedule changes or in case of an emergency. With push notifications can set geo alerts to alert your attendees of important reminders based on their location. You can also implement AR ability so that attendees can try out new products. Your contributors can publish audio tours to impress the attendees by filling them with information at each exhibit and e-brochures that the attendee can view before, during, and after the event.

Boost Revenue

Conference event apps make navigating the event easier on multiple levels. Event apps are especially beneficial for allowing your attendees to purchase items easily right from their smart device and for you to showcase unique event items right at their fingertips.

Monetize Sponsors

It’s important to take time to recognize the sponsors that helped you put on the event. You can do this by adding a section of the custom conference app that is dedicated to your sponsors. By taking time to thank them, you are giving your sponsors a unique platform and driving leads with just a click of a button. Make sure you take time to talk to your app developer on how to create ads that highlight your sponsors and allows your sponsors to track data and leads from the event.

Instantly Connected

Paper brochures, maps, and schedules are difficult to keep track of and hard to map out. I remember losing brochures and having to sit down and figure out the event layout, circling which booths I wanted to see. Conference event apps give your attendees access to important information instantly.
