Hot off the press: ChangeFest has an App!

November 15, 2018


Make sure you download the free, official ChangeFest App to make sure you get the most out of your ChangeFest experience!

Earlier today, you will have received an email inviting you to download the App. Check out the program of speakers, connect with other delegates (to save our forests, we aren't printing programs), participate in live polls and question & answer sessions, and tweet like crazy - it's all possible on our ChangeFest App.

This will hold all the information you need for your week - so we strongly encourage ALL DELEGATES to download it.

Later today, you will receive an invitation to download the App in your inbox. Follow the steps and set up your account, and then you're in! 

Some features include:

Session times: The program, in the palm of your hand, has a short description of each session, and the ability to create your own customised program with preferred breakouts, not-to-miss speakers and more. You can also set reminders to make sure you are at each session bright and early and  share any photos you take of each session in the App.

Speaker bios: Who exactly is speaking at ChangeFest? We've packed the App with bios for many of our speakers so that you can check out their impressive credentials. 

Notifications: Enable push notifications in your phone settings to receive reminders, shout outs and any important information in real time during ChangeFest. 

Activity Feed: Our Activity Feed gives you the chance to see what people are tweeting when they use #ChangeFest18 and join the conversation yourself. If you check out the Social Wall, you'll see what everyone's saying on their Twitter and Instagram accounts. If you check out the Event Feed, you can post questions or comments which are visible to any delegate with the App (you don'r need a social media presesnce to make the most of this!). This is how you'll be able to ask questions in real time during sessions!

Attendee List: You can message and connect with other delegates via the App! If you head to your profile and make it public - and add a pic too - other delegates will be able to see your details and contact you - a fantastic opportunity to make some new connections and swap ideas with new friends. 

Live polling:  We want to know how you feel about the issues of the day! Keep an eye on those notifications - some of them will ask you to vote in a live poll - this is a great way to provide feedback, gauge what you want to see, how you are feeling, and what we need to discuss! 

As always, as you are exploring the App - be kind!  The App is a work in progress and we are spending the next few days testing and updating and making sure that it's in tip top shape by the start of ChangeFest! 

If you have any questions about the App when you have downloaded it, contact us and we'll help you out! 

Recharge....

With all the App action, you'll want to log into the free wifi at the Logan Entertainment Centre - and you may need to recharge your device too!

We're pleased to be able to tell you that there will be a charging station available at ChangeFest, generously sponsored by host organisation Griffith University.
