ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The National Association of Chain Drug Stores has launched its 2011 Marketplace Web-based mobile application, which is designed to enhance attendees' efficiency and experience at the NACDS Marketplace Conference from June 25 to 28 in Boston.
The first NACDS mobile app was introduced for the NACDS 2010 Annual Meeting.
In addition, the NACDS mobile website, m.NACDS.org, is updated with information about the upcoming conference and all 2011 NACDS events.
"NACDS continues to explore innovative ways to enhance its member programs and services," NACDS president and CEO Steve Anderson said. "Utilizing technology is an important way to maximize the continued value and experience that NACDS members expect from NACDS meetings and conferences."
The NACDS mobile app is compatible with most smartphone platforms, including iPhone, Droid and Blackberry devices, and can be downloaded for free on m.NACDS.org or from NACDS' main website, NACDS.org. The NACDS mobile website serves as a "guide on the go" to NACDS meetings, advocacy and communications. Marketplace attendees will find planning tools for the event, including an updated schedule, floor plan, list of participants and sponsors.
The site is specifically designed for ease of use on any smartphone with a Web browser.
