NACDS gears up for Annual Meeting with mobile app, mobile website
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The National Association of Chain Drug Stores launched its 2012 Annual Meeting mobile application and the NACDS mobile website has been fully updated with information about this meeting and all 2012 NACDS events. Combined, these mobile resources offer Annual Meeting attendees practical tools that they will find helpful in advanced planning and onsite implementation, NACDS said.
This mobile app, first introduced for the 2010 NACDS Annual Meeting, is designed to enhance attendees’ efficiency and experience at the NACDS Annual Meeting, which will take place April 21 to 24 in Palm Beach, Fla. NACDS also utilized similar apps for various NACDS conferences and events.
The NACDS mobile website, found at M.NACDS.org, serves as a “guide on the go” to NACDS meetings, advocacy and communications. This year’s Annual Meeting attendees will find on the site an updated schedule, floor plan, list of participants and other information about the upcoming event. The site is specifically designed for ease of use on any smartphone with a Web browser.
The 2012 NACDS Annual Meeting Mobile App can be downloaded on a number of mobile platforms. For iPhone (plus, iPod Touch & iPad) and Android phones: visit the App Store or Android Market on the phone and search for ‘2012 NACDS Annual Meeting’ and download the mobile app. For all other Smartphones (including BlackBerry and all other Web browser-enabled phones): direct the mobile browser to http://m.core-apps.com/nacdsam2012. From there, download the proper version of the app to match the device, or bookmark the page for future reference.
