HelloWorld to Power MMA's SM2 Innovation Summit App During Advertising Week

Event App and Live Mobile Trivia to Provide a More Engaging and Interactive Experience

PLEASANT RIDGE, MI--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - HelloWorld, a company that provides a rich engagement platform for marketers, has partnered with the Mobile Marketing Association (MMA) to build a mobile application and manage push notifications for its SM2 Innovation Summit during Advertising Week, September 30 through October 1 in New York. HelloWorld previously powered the MMA's CEO & CMO Summit app this past July. Conference apps created by HelloWorld give attendees a seamless experience while providing conference organizers with real-time analytics.

Available in both the iTunes Store and Google Play, the SM2 Innovation Summit app includes Beacon features, allowing summit organizers to trigger experiences in-venue so marketers can experience this technology first hand and in real time. Additionally, using their Live Events Platform, HelloWorld will power mobile trivia experiences throughout the event, designed to attract and encourage a deeper and more robust attendee engagement. Conference attendees will test their mobile knowledge and compete against one another by participating via SMS on their personal devices.

"Large conferences like the SM2 Innovation Summit require substantial time and investment to pull off successfully," said Jen Gray, HelloWorld's VP of Marketing. "With so much at stake, conference organizers need real-time engagement solutions to ensure that conference-goers are educated and satisfied with their experience."

"Using HelloWorld's Rich Engagement Platform for our mobile app and live trivia helps us demonstrate cross-screen technology, which is one of the focus points of the event," said MMA, Chief Strategy Officer Sheryl Daija. "As a long-time active member of the MMA, HelloWorld has been a great partner for us as we continue to build educational and inspirational events for marketers."
