Congratulations to those of you who joined our beta set of our Engage by RegFox attendee app. This app helps you level up. your event experience!

The Engage event app is designed to give your attendees easy access to all the important details about your event. The app includes schedules, location information, session descriptions, attendee directory, sponsor listings, exhibitors, and more.

Since attendee engagement is so important at your event, we have made building connections and exchanging contacts incredibly easy. Our lead retrieval functionality allows your attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors to quickly exchange information with each other in seconds by scanning each other's QR codes straight from the app.

The Engage event app is designed to increase engagement for your attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors. Better engagement means your attendees will have a better experience and will be dying to come back to your next event. Learn how to setup and use the app below.

NOTE: You'll want to make sure your page has been published before adding sponsors and exhibitors to your Attendee App. If you added sponsors and exhibitors prior to publishing, you'll want to delete and re-add them in order for them to receive their invite email.
