#Tradeshow apps




#From a tradeshow app to a new revenue modelAn attractive revenue model

Initially our events apps were simple an extra service towards our visitors.

This has evolved into a new source of revenue through sponsoring, ads inside the apps, and lead generation for exhibitors.

Mobile apps have become a crucial direct communication channel towards our event visitors.
