What makes Whova special? Whova's technology builds comprehensive profiles of attendees so you can view all attendee profiles before you even arrive at the event or conference. Plan in advance whom to meet at an event, what to talk about with each attendee, and reach out to others via in-app messages before, during, and after the event. You can also create casual meetups and arrange social activities with other groups of attendees. Whova revolutionizes event networking and significantly improves the ROI of attending events.
You can also use the Whova conference app to digitize and manage business cards you receive at events. Whova exceeds other business card reader apps like CamCard, CardMunch, ScanBizCards or Scannable etc. by automatically building full profiles using Whova's SmartProfile technology. This allows you to gain deep insights into your contacts' professional backgrounds, work experience, passions, and interests. You can also seamlessly connect with contacts online via LinkedIn and other platforms. Whova's business card scanning feature now supports cards in English, Chinese, and Korean.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is SO helpful!
Great app and very functional :) I loved all of the service items within. It was my first time using this app for an event and found it extremely helpful!!! By having the app, I can review the agenda, and see the attendee list, which is great for targeting specific leads, and engage in messaging with other conference attendees. It's a great tool for networking at conferences. Our company used Whova to generate leads at the conferences/events. We are also able to start relationship building right away by engaging in texting and conversation groups through the app. As a person with background of Operations / IT project management / Sales, I would say Whova is definitely an impressive platform.

It needs to work out some kinks
On the whole, I’m glad to use the app for an event I’m attending. But Whova does some faulty things. For example, the event I’m going to is something people will drive from their home to, but Whova sets it up a “carpool from the airport”. So you have to say your airport and flight and then explain later that you’re not coming from any airport. Worse, when you post there, Whova makes a statement “Hi guys, I want to join the carpool!” which is obnoxious and confusing, since they make it appear like you said that but you didn’t- you wouldn’t- in the context of rideshare it doesn’t make sense- there’s no carpool yet. Are you driving? Do you need a ride? That’s relevant information. But Whova makes you look like some idiot who is trying to join a nonexistent carpool.

Thank you for your feedback. Most of the events that use the ride-sharing feature have attendees taking flights to attend the events so the feature is more suitable for those common cases. Your organizers might have enabled it by mistake since it does not fit your event very well.
However, we understand the confusion and difficulties it has caused. Our product team will definitely look into it and seek potential enhancements. Thank you again for your valuable feedback!

Great concept to have interactive conferences, but disappointed with Whoova so far. Looking at other reviews, the developer has known users needed landscape orientation for iPad nearly a year and still no fix. By today’s tech standards, that is simply unacceptable, and makes one skeptical of trusting such a shaky platform with one’s personal data - which sadly one is forced to do by the conference host organization. Also very busy with too many bells and whistles to keep track of when one is supposed to be learning from the conference. Finally, when we were leaving our conference, the survey server was down meaning we had to delay our exit survey and thereby our credit awards.
Please take these critiques into account and save this app.

Thank you very much for the feedback. We have released a new version that supports landscape orientation for iPad, please check it out and let us know your feedback!
Regarding the survey issue, Whova offers organizers ability to add their own survey links into the app. As it is the 3rd party survey system, we do not have any control on their server. Thanks for your understanding in advance.
