Beacons are a small wireless device that broadcasts a signal using Bluetooth. By using a beacon, you can send out personalised notifications, direct attendees to a specific page in the app, or send out a custom URL.
Go to session page - Tapping on the alert takes your attendee to the session you select.
Go to organization page - Your notification directs attendees to the organization you select.
Go to URL - Send your attendees to a webpage outside of your app.
Send a notification - Your alert contains a message of up to 100 characters.
There are 3 proximity options:
- Near (1 meter/3 feet) – Best for exhibitor booths and sponsor areas.
- Moderate (3 meters/9 feet) – Best for small rooms and doorways.
- Far (17 meters/55 feet) – Best for large rooms, lobbies, and registration areas.
To receive beacon alerts, attendees must have the app open. Attendees will not receive beacon alerts when the app is in the background.
