May EA preview: Fast Forward takes a look at emerging trade show apps for smartphones

Convention season is upon us and your best guide through the packed halls and endless exhibitor booths may be that tiny but powerful device in your pocket. Trade show apps for smartphones like Androids and iPhones are being used more and more by organizers to maximize the experience by allowing users to find booths quickly, customize schedules, contact other attendees, and connect through social media.

Fast Forward, the new column in Electrical Apparatus will take a detailed look at the app features for shows like the EASA Convention, June 30-July 2 in Las Vegas, and how they make the whole experience easier. The full column will appear in the upcoming May issue.
