We wanted to call out some of the innovative marketing and PR activities solar clients are pursuing during Solar Power International 2011 (SPI) next week, and since the iPhone 4S just came out and everyone now seems to be permanently glued to their smartphones and mobile devices, we thought the first mobile app for SPI would be an interesting topic.
If you’ve ever been to SPI, you—along with the more than 24,000 solar professionals who are slated to attend this year’s event—know that it’s the place to be if you want to learn about the latest solar industry trends from enterprising and innovative companies working to build a competitive market around clean energy. Yet, as captivating as this four-day conference can be, navigating an enormous conference center with more than 1,000 exhibitors can be a difficult task, particularly when you’re searching for a specific company and only have ten minutes to find its booth. Clean Power Finance, a solar financing company that recently announced its $75 million Google Fund, is partnering with SPI to help all those sun-lovers in attendance locate key events, seminars and more through a brand-new SPI Mobile App.
This mobile app, the first of its kind to be used at SPI, is designed to guide attendees to maps, news and other pertinent information as it develops onsite at the conference. Everything you need to stay on schedule and connected is on this app, which is available at the iTunes app store (search “Solar Power International” to download it for free).
The SPI Mobile App includes the following:
• Navigating the event with an interactive floor map that uses GPS;
• Managing your schedule in real time;
• Searching exhibitor listings and products by keyword, and download company information;
• Viewing the schedule of conference sessions and special events;
• Receiving real-time show alerts and RSS news feeds;
• Interacting through social media;
• Accessing show documents;
• And much more!
SPI Mobile is available for iPhone/iPod Touch and Android, or as a web-based application for all other smartphones including BlackBerry. So take advantage of mobile technology while exploring the future of solar energy technology; make sure you stay up-to-date on SPI activities, hit up all the speaking sessions you want to hear, and don’t get lost in the crowd. Enjoy the show!
