According to a press release, once registrants download the app to their device, they’ll have access to all workshop titles by track and the ability to complete session evaluations online, view speaker handouts, and use interactive maps of the exhibit hall and the meeting facilities. The app will continue to feature social media connections and personal scheduling and messaging for attendees, but with enhanced capabilities.
The 2014 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo takes place Nov. 10-14 at Bally’s on the Las Vegas Strip. This year’s theme is “Passport to Excellence: Education and Training.” Registration is still open on the RVDA convention website. The app is provided by Guidbook.com and available for free download.
“Thanks to the support of eBay Motors, we are able to add features to our convention’s mobile app that will help our attendees get the most out of the event,” said Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) President Phil Ingrassia. “For example, all handouts for workshops will be available in digital format on users’ smartphones and tablets. In addition, the new features supported by eBay Motors’ sponsorship will allow in app workshop and convention evaluations. Both these enhancements will eliminate wasted resources and allow us to transition away from loading down attendees with paperwork. We are also excited about the new opportunities to integrate social media and messaging into the app.”
eBay Motors is also providing a speaker for the new track on Social Media and eMarketing, Kevin Lorell. Lorell is Head of Motorcycles, Powersports, RVs and Trailers at eBay Motors. He’ll be co-presenting a workshop entitled,” Ignite Your Online Sales: How to Sell More RVs with eBay Motors,” on Nov. 11, from 1:15–2:15 p.m.
