Pittcon 2011 has launched an official conference and exposition smartphone app, "Pittcon 2011." The free app includes complete event information including the technical programme, exhibitor listing, short courses, and local area and conference related maps. The app will be available for use on Androids, Blackberrys, iPhones and iPod Touches with access before, during and after the conference. According to the conference, attendees will be able to build their agendas, network with their colleagues, send tweets to the video display in the conference’s Centennial Park and receive regular conference updates.

"Our statistics tell us that the number of those attendees using Smartphones has increased 150% over this same time last year, and according to Nielson, Smartphone usage is expected to outnumber regular phones by the end of 2011”, commented Marian Nardozzi, Pittcon's senior marketing and communications specialist. “Pittcon has always been about bringing the latest innovations and research to our attendees, so it only made sense for us to provide this technology to our audience."

The web version of the Pittcon Agenda Builder will continue to be available to those attendees without Smartphones.

The Pittcon 2011 App can be downloaded directly by pointing your camera directly at the QR code below or by visiting http://j.mp/pittcon2011 with your phone.
