Freeman's AVT Event Technologies Launches Mobile Meeting App

AVT Event Technologies, an in-house A/V provider for hotels and resorts, has launched a new mobile application that allows meeting planners to create customized event apps free of charge for their attendees when they use AVT as their exclusive A/V supplier, it announced yesterday.

Called Cumulus, the new app is one of only a few free apps on the market, according to AVT — a division of event production company Freeman — which says planners can load their app with event-specific content in up to 10 areas: Facility, Agenda, Speakers, Links, Downloads, Attendees, Bulletins, Transit, Sponsors and Videos.

“With Cumulus, we’re able to give meeting planners a long-awaited mobile app option that integrates seamlessly into the attendees’ event experience,” Chris Walsh, AVT’s vice president of sales development, said in a statement. “Creating this new AVT tool and providing it as a standard option free of charge to our customers was very important to us. We also recognized that our Cumulus app gives all AVT hotel partners a distinct advantage in their sales cycle.”
