Nothing is more useful for event attendees than having an event app at your fingertips, with schedules, social opportunities, speaker information, maps and much more easily accessible. We wanted to share some step-by-step instructions, suggestions and screenshots for you. Please let us know if you have any questions!

4. Side Bar: At any point, click on the bullet-pointed three lines in the top left corner to see the side bar options which take you to your personalized sections of the app:
Account/Profile: Create your account, update your profile, or log out of the event app. Are you already registered? Log in via a social network that you included on your CMWorld registration, and your information should auto-populate. Feel free to manually update it once the screen shows your profile information.

My Notes: View any notes you have taken throughout the event.
Twitter: See who is tweeting about the event and share your own experiences. You can compose tweets from the sessions, organizations, and speaker pages. Be patient: the tweets can sometimes take a few minutes to appear within the app, especially with 2,500 marketers in a room!
