ALEXANDRIA, Va. Attendees of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores’ Pharmacy & Technology Conference in San Diego at the end of this month will have acess to an app for their mobile phones that provides conference information, NACDS said Tuesday.
The app, which is free, will provide biographical information on speakers, an interactive map with routing information for booths, an exhibitor directory and a personalized show schedule. Similar apps were used at the NACDS’ Marketplace Conference and Annual Meeting earlier this year. The app is available for such smart phone devices as iPhone, Droid and Blackberry.
“The NACDS Pharmacy & Technology Conference Web application is an important resource in our communications toolbox to help us share information about the upcoming conference,” NACDS SVP member programs and services Jim Whitman stated. “The application provides a new and unique platform to leverage social media technology and create an even more vigorous conference experience that is consistent with our members’ priorities in creating effective tools for collaboration and innovation.”
