ATIV Software's EventPilot, a mobile app favored for medical and scientific meetings, debuted new mapping features in its latest iteration. Attendees can plan their meetings with exhibitors in advance, based on booth location. Using the interactive map function once on-site, attendees can search for vendors and then indicate where their meetings are, updating the maps on the fly as they navigate the show floor. The maps are available offline as well, should Internet access be lost in the exhibit hall. Each location on the maps displays the associated data: vendor information in the exhibit hall map, session details with the room locations, and individual research abstracts for locations in the poster halls. All data is searchable and can be filtered, including in the map view. Examples and screenshots are available at The new functionality is now live in the app, which is available as a native download for iPhone, iPad, Android devices and Kindle Fire.
