We felt that modern technology should be part of our conference and consequently have developed our own “app”. Now if you own a smartphone with ios, android or windows operating systems you can get the conference app for FREE. (not yet supported on Kindle)
Just go to your “app” marketplace and search for “eventboard” Download this and then scroll down the conferences to Exodus:Movement of the People. It will then load onto your smartphone. It will also work on an iPad but you need to download the “free” eventboad app for iPhone.
What will you find there?
The full programme and all the speakers with links in order to view by speaker, time slot, session type, session track and by keyword. You can even create your own Agenda. Find the speaker/session you want and touch the heart – it will turn red and then appear in your My Agenda page. Of course we have already added the common sessions such as breakfast, lunch and dinner into your Agenda!
Here you will find all the latest news from the conference including our ability to send you any last minute important messages through the app as well as all the articles and other posts that are appearing on our conference blog
