The App of the Year Awards is the champion of app development in the country; celebrating local homegrown talent, the out-of-the-box thinkers that drive disruption and change, and the genius light bulb ideas that soon become indispensable to everyday life.The IoT Conference and Awards is maturing, from a pure “challenge and awards” model into a broader event, including both awards and a conference – promoting knowledge and best practice sharing for developers and buyers in the connected infrastructure and Internet of Things space.
Flock provided a digital solution that allowed attendees to access the event info and ensure that it was up to date. Networking was enabled in the app where meetings were scheduled and in-app messages allowed for delegates to carry on with conversations post event.
