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.

Whova is SOC2 Type II and PCI compliant. These security and privacy certificates recognize Whova’s practice of reliable, safe, secure, and trustworthy management of user data protection and privacy.

Planning and

I have to say that I truly enjoyed the features provided through this app. One of the most important features that really helped me stay organized and plan for the event was the fact that it gave all of the sessions and once you decided which one you were interested in, you could add it to an agenda and then when you’re done, you can see the agenda for the entire event and you can see the agenda from the selections you made. On the day of the event, I didn’t have to open up the hard copy of the agenda. It was already loaded in my phone. I knew exactly where to go. I knew what was going to be discussed which helps alleviate the stress of trying to figure out where to go next, and increase my time with collaborating with my colleagues. Another feature that I enjoyed was the reminder so I knew that 10 minutes before my next session. I would get an alert on my phone to let me know it was time to head to my next session, that was very helpful for me. Lastly, the listing of other participants allowed me to see what professional educators I was in the mist of throughout the conference, and that helped me make informed decisions about which sessions to go to, to meet the needs of the education institution that I support. All events should have this app for their participants, so that participants can maximize the time spent during the event/conference. It like a personal assistant at the conference!

Suwannee Banjo Camp experience

This was the first year for Banjo Camp to go online. Of course, it was due to COVID. They used Whova and my experience as an attendee was OUTSTANDING! I liked it almost as much as attending the camp and, in some ways, it was a better experience. For example, I am from Massachusetts and I would not have traveled to attend this great camp in Florida. Also several of the sessions were recorded making it possible to see sessions that were scheduled at the same time. Plus I could review the same session several times. In addition, all documents were available several days before the class so I could review them ahead of time. Those are just a few of the reasons why I loved the online experience. I even suggested that next year, when COVID is hopefully over, the camp should adapt a hybrid model where some attendees are in person and, at the same time, others view the class online. I think it could be a good model for all music camps (and other types of camps) and it would enable many students to attend far away camps without the time and expense of travel. It would also increase the overall camp attendance.
BRAVO Whoa!!

Made The Event A Breeze

Initially I was iffy about having to use Whova for the event I was attending, but once I saw how it allowed me to interact not only with the event hosts but also the other attendees, I quickly came to love the app. I was going to this event on my own and didn’t know anyone else that was attending and the Whova app allowed me to chat with and get to know other attendees prior to the event so I actually had some new friends to meet up with and hang out with. The app also allowed me to keep easy track of my schedule for the event (had several classes), allowed for immediate notifications of updates to the event and even had a map of the venue which was extremely helpful for finding my classes.

I feel kinda spoiled by having been able to use the Whova app for this event and I hope that any future events like this that I may go to will use the Whova app as well.

To those planning events, I highly recommend you use Whova for your attendees to keep track of the schedule and get to chat with other attendees prior to the event. It really helped make the whole event so much better!
