Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau Launches New Event App The Sioux Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) has launched a new meeting, convention and event web based app that can be customized for groups who book their event in Sioux Falls. Customization includes the event/company logo, colors, agenda, speakers, notes, attendees, around town, maps, event updates, social and FAQ. Users will also be able to signup to receive the CVB’s planner e-newsletter, follow the CVB on Twitter or Like Visit Sioux Falls on Facebook. “Planners are consistently looking for the ways a CVB can make their job easier especially in the ever-changing digital arena, while also providing attendees with the best experience possible,” states Krista Orsack, Director of Marketing for the Sioux Falls CVB. “When a CVB can offer a complimentary service to planners, it also provides a competitive advantage during the bidding process.” The app will not be available through the App Store or Google Play. The CVB will purchase the use of a domain extension (or link) to be used by the group in the pre-event marketing to all attendees for download. This allows for cross-device compatibility, as well as a more costefficient app building process. The first group to use the app will be Small Market Meetings Conference in Sioux Falls, October 6-8, 2013. Users will download the app at www.SMMC2013.info.
