Planning and
I have to say that I truly enjoyed the features provided through this app. One of the most important features that really helped me stay organized and plan for the event was the fact that it gave all of the sessions and once you decided which one you were interested in, you could add it to an agenda and then when you’re done, you can see the agenda for the entire event and you can see the agenda from the selections you made. On the day of the event, I didn’t have to open up the hard copy of the agenda. It was already loaded in my phone. I knew exactly where to go. I knew what was going to be discussed which helps alleviate the stress of trying to figure out where to go next, and increase my time with collaborating with my colleagues. Another feature that I enjoyed was the reminder so I knew that 10 minutes before my next session. I would get an alert on my phone to let me know it was time to head to my next session, that was very helpful for me. Lastly, the listing of other participants allowed me to see what professional educators I was in the mist of throughout the conference, and that helped me make informed decisions about which sessions to go to, to meet the needs of the education institution that I support. All events should have this app for their participants, so that participants can maximize the time spent during the event/conference. It like a personal assistant at the conference!

Suwannee Banjo Camp experience
This was the first year for Banjo Camp to go online. Of course, it was due to COVID. They used Whova and my experience as an attendee was OUTSTANDING! I liked it almost as much as attending the camp and, in some ways, it was a better experience. For example, I am from Massachusetts and I would not have traveled to attend this great camp in Florida. Also several of the sessions were recorded making it possible to see sessions that were scheduled at the same time. Plus I could review the same session several times. In addition, all documents were available several days before the class so I could review them ahead of time. Those are just a few of the reasons why I loved the online experience. I even suggested that next year, when COVID is hopefully over, the camp should adapt a hybrid model where some attendees are in person and, at the same time, others view the class online. I think it could be a good model for all music camps (and other types of camps) and it would enable many students to attend far away camps without the time and expense of travel. It would also increase the overall camp attendance. BRAVO Whoa!!

Made The Event A Breeze
Initially I was iffy about having to use Whova for the event I was attending, but once I saw how it allowed me to interact not only with the event hosts but also the other attendees, I quickly came to love the app. I was going to this event on my own and didn’t know anyone else that was attending and the Whova app allowed me to chat with and get to know other attendees prior to the event so I actually had some new friends to meet up with and hang out with. The app also allowed me to keep easy track of my schedule for the event (had several classes), allowed for immediate notifications of updates to the event and even had a map of the venue which was extremely helpful for finding my classes. I feel kinda spoiled by having been able to use the Whova app for this event and I hope that any future events like this that I may go to will use the Whova app as well. To those planning events, I highly recommend you use Whova for your attendees to keep track of the schedule and get to chat with other attendees prior to the event. It really helped make the whole event so much better!

Whova is the right choice for your awesome event!
Whova, a virtual platform, made my learning experience exciting! Finding topics, for our event, was easy and efficient. Using the Follow tab helped me to keep up with Topics that interested me the most. Finding valuable resources was just one click away! The search feature saved time when looking for a topic, small group, or an individual within a small group. When networking , I was able to bookmark a participant so that I could find them quickly and message /video chat with them worldwide! Though I tend not to interact with Organizers / Program Facilitators / Program Presenters, I did so on Whova because they seemed “close enough” to be reached. The Organizers/Facilitators/ Presenters interacted with participants real time and if participants reached out to them afterwards, we were notified that a response was given. I did not have to consider technology troubles because there were none. For that reason , I was able to fully grasp all that was available to me during the event! Whova is the right choice for an awesome event!

Great event platform
I recently attended the first all-online version of the Pacific Seabird Group’s Annual Meeting. It was held on the Whova app, and the features supported on the app were great. Some improvements from the in-person meetings I’ve attended in the past are the ability to access the pre-recorded or live-recorded talks and posters, which you can access again if your notes aren’t perfect. The chat options in the live talks are great, and the speaker can focus on answering questions, rather than the room being held captive while one person has a “more of a comment” moment. The “agenda” interface was great, and the ability to set up a “my agenda” to compare to the whole conference was great. Getting in and out of “rooms” was simple, and I didn’t experience any lag or glitching when they opened. All in all, I hope we use the platform to augment any in-person future meetings, especially since being able to access the other talks means you don’t have to miss anything during concurrent sessions. If we do future online or virtual conferences I think this would be a great app to organize it on.

It actually works! Like, really well!
Finally, a conference app that is genuinely better than a paper program. I used this app for 5 days at a conference for the first time last week and it by far exceeded my expectations. It is easy to use (intuitive even for those who aren’t technologically savvy), not buggy, and has a lot of neat features that help with networking in a way that isn’t awkward. The map feature is excellent and particularly useful, and I like how easy it is to add break out sessions to my personal agenda. The way the app is laid out makes a lot of sense too — the first page it brings you to is the agenda, and then you can click on each event to read more, ask questions, take notes, and chat with other attendees in the sessions. I’ve had to use a lot of conference apps, and this is the first one that has improved the conference experience rather than create a headache. If I were a conference planner, I would definitely use this! Highly recommend!

When you can’t hug
I was introduced to the Whova app for our UCC national church conference of some 150 plus participants resorting to a virtual meeting due to COVID. I’m age 73 and an avid Facebook user, texter, and email user. I’ve used Zoom some. I was very comfortable with the Whova app in reviewing my agenda and signing up for various breakouts. I was impressed how well we were able to break out for small group discussions, the warning message as time limit was approaching and the rejoining the large group. I could see participants. I use a Mac which does not always adapt to various app, but had no problems. Our conference ran four days with minimal issues. A highlight of our conferences is the meeting of folks from all over the nation and hugging. We could not physically hug but the app readily allowed me to search out to folks, meet new folks, send messages, and more. In these crazy times and when travel is not an option....Whova is an outstanding option.

Great app! Just one single suggestion
The app was fantastic, easy to use, and fun! The feature for adding points and incentivizing competition is a brilliant detail. Unlike other apps, I made several hundred connections and began friendships with many of the attendees. The option to post pictures and create your own meet-ups as well as themed rooms was a great way to draw attention and unite like-minded attendees. My only suggestion: it was sometimes cumbersome to find the reply to a post or notification. This was mostly an issue with the “new member section,” where a new member would be welcomed by someone else and I would receive a notification. To find the reply (and remove the notification), I was forced to scroll through all the different members that had joined, meaning I would have to scroll through 30-50 different posts. All in all, excellent app!

Whova review
I used the Whova app for the first time last week at a large convention setting. I have attended venues like this for years and over the last 5 years or so, some for of app design has been part of the experience. I have never had much success using prior apps… they were confusing, not helpful and I generally lost interest in using them. The Whova app was a totally new experience. It seemed seamless in its presentation, very friendly and easy to attain information that I needed. It kept track of events, introduced speakers and slides used. The app kept me in touch with the conference staff/ problem -solvers if any questions came up. Responses were in text form and open to all users and very helpful to gauge what I may have been missing. Can’t say enough to the great value it brought me as a user!

Love this app. Wish I had it years ago
I recently attended Maine Fungi Fest and had the pleasure of using Who a for the first time. Immediately I saw this app would have been extremely helpful when I was working in a corporate setting and had to go to week long seminars and bring information back to the company. This would have been amazingly helpful organizing the short time at these events. It controls any contact between attendees, built in system to arrange meet-ups, ways to coordinate not only your team but coordinate how your team meets up with other teams and individuals. I love this app and would and have recommended it to everyone when the subject comes up. I have a degree in computer science and some coving and I am impressed how they designers seemed to have hit almost every point.

Great networking tool
I just used Whova for a professional in-person conference for the first time. I was very impressed with the app and thought it really facilitated greater engagement before, during and after the conference. As a speaker , I was able to upload information about my session way in advance to build interest and ask a question for the group to ponder beforehand. I was also able to create a poll that went to the entire attendee list and then share the results live in my session. Because I knew who and how many would attend my session, I could tailor my presentation to the expected group and then follow up with individuals afterwards. It was also easy to reach out to people I was hoping to connect with during and and after the conference. Great addition to any event!

Introvert Heaven
Whova provided a fun, easy way to interact and network with attendees and organizers throughout the conference. It was helpful to see people’s photos and information prior to meeting in person. One of the prime benefits was being able to see all the sessions in the palm of my hand rather than carrying around a paper agenda! Securing a spot on the leaderboard quickly became my obsession; however, I was disappointed that it went unrecognized by the organizers—what’s even the point of awarding points at that point? I have revisited the app several times after the conference to export presenter slides and continue discussions with other attendees. Overall, it was a great tool to have throughout the conference and allowed the introverted attendees to partake in discussion and networking without stepping up to a microphone or approaching strangers. I hope to see this app utilized in future conferences.

One Stop App
I want to begin by saying that I am not a fan of apps because they take up so much space on my phone. When I heard about the jumpstart conference, I wasn’t even sure if I would go, but being that I am a first time home school in Mom, I decided it was my best bet. When they offered the app, I am mediately ignored it. I decided to download it because the agenda was on the app. As much as I hate notifications, I thought it would be a great idea to allow them to come through in order to be informed. I was blown away by what the app could do. Presenters started posting, attendees started connecting with one another, and within a matter of days, it was a full-blown party! The app was so useful and resourceful. It also helped everyone get pumped for the conference. I know that sounds funny when I’m talking about a home schooling conference, but it was awesome! It posted updates in real time, including the day of the conference. For example, if a room or session changed, they updated it on the app. I love that the presenters were able to upload their PowerPoint presentations, documents, on the app (for access to everyone), etc. It truly was a one stop shop :-) I will definitely recommend this to my friends!

Great UI/UX
I recently downloaded Whova for a virtual research conference, and I’m very impressed with both the app and website performance. Both platforms really facilitated organic interaction between attendees. The Exhibitor Hub was especially useful and gives options for promoting yourself/your company, showcasing offerings, and collect leads. My favorite part of the app was that it automatically grouped attendees by keyword interests and organizations, and you could browse through all of the groups to find mutual interests. I’m not sure if this is already a feature on the app, but on the desktop version, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could browse the conference website while I was attending a Zoom session (great integration with Zoom, btw) and a popout of the video would appear alongside the rest of the content. Would be good to have that for mobile as well.

Whova is Everything in the right place!
As a first time user of Whova, I am impressed with how simple maneuvering around the app is. Attending a virtual conference became interactive in more ways than would be possible in person. Meeting and connecting with people in this virtual world was simple, fast, and allowed for so much information at the tip of my fingers. Each link was exceptionally easy to access. I especially love the space to take notes, and store data. The bonus was being able to participate in chats during presentations as well as access several presentations at once. Virtual conferences on Whova will change the way conferences happen. Whova paved the way for me to see how accessible participating in a conference can be from the luxury of my own space.

Easy to navigate
Once I found out that livestreams were indicated at the top of the sessions ‘agenda,’ and only appeared there each day, I found the app easy to use to find a live-streamed session. And you can create your own own agenda of only those things you want to attend. The streams ran one after another with no real need to leave and come back to see the next one. It was, for the most part, glitch free as well once something started streaming. I used my iPhone for everything each day and was on my own home WiFi. And, once things that were recorded for later viewing that we had to miss are loaded into the app, we’ll be able to see all those sessions too. I like the app. It’s pretty easy to use and connect with others at the event.

Great for a first time conference goer!
My first time using Whova was also my first time going to a professional development conference. The organization elements of Whova helped me easily browse and set reminders for different panels I wanted to attend. The Community board was great for interacting with other participants, and the Ice Breakers helped me feel more comfortable in this virtual community space. The mobile app and desktop page UIs are similar in a good way! It meant that I could easily navigate both and quickly pick up a conversation I was having on desktop later on the mobile app. My one critique is that the Polls tab never worked on mobile for me. The conference I attended didn’t use that feature much, but it was a slight point of confusion for me when I was watching a panel on mobile and they asked me to fill out a poll.

Whova App Review
The WHOVA app was utilized for a conference I recently attended in ATL. It was AWESOME!! I was able to see the overall agenda, create my own agenda, meet up with others, see the menus throughout the conference, receive updates from the organizers of any changes in presentations, meeting rooms, etc., check out the attending vendors and speakers, connect with other attendees and view pictures taken throughout the event. In short, it made this conference unlike any other conference I’ve attended. Very user friendly! Another PLUS, we will have assess via the App for a period of time after the conference to watch the recorded sessions and continue to connect with our fellow attendees, giving us an opportunity to continue to grow relationships. I highly recommend this App.

Beyond impressed
I’ve got to tell you that I am beyond impressed having used Whova for the first time in an online conference experience. What really did it was seeing the many engaging ways Whova has built into the app to connect individuals and groups interested in the same topics. It actually suggests people to the user who share similar interests. It facilitates anyone starting a topical discussion group — or, taking it farther, facilitates anyone scheduling a video or face to face meet up. The contests built in make it fun to share more and complete tasks to gain points - perhaps to rise into the leaderboard. All to say that in the week leading up to the conference, I saw more interaction in the app than I usually see during a whole conference. Talk about giving a boost to the actual online conference!

An app that does it’s job well
For a recent conference, I found that Whova does a great job organizing everything you need to know. It’s also super easy to set up your profile which was awesome. The only issue I had, and it’s small, is the little button on the bottom right of the Agenda page. You’re supposed to be able to click it to take you to the currently in-progress sessions on the agenda, but every time I would click it, it would take me to the top of the page (showing me the earliest sessions that day). Not a big deal but there were a lot of sessions at my conference which made it a tad annoying to scroll through. Otherwise, I’d be happy to use Whova again for future conferences.

NASRO Basic SRO class
The class was amazing. Jordan Kelley and Brock Hardy were awesome. They knew what they had to teach not by looking at the power point but by memory. It’s was very enjoyable to take a class that was a week long with instructor that you could tell enjoyed and were passionate about what they were teaching. They explained every bit of the class so not one in the classroom could say they didn’t understand any part of it. I can’t speak for each instructor you have but for the two that taught me last week. They are absolutely great at what they do. If you rated the instructors from 1 to 10 you would have to give these two men a 15. Awesome class was made into perfection with two above average instructors.

Whova Interactive App for Events
I recently attended an event in my local area. The app, Whova, was an amazing tool that offered so many engaging, useful, and informative tools. I was able to register for sessions and refer back to the app for time and locations. I was able to make suggestions and chat with other participants in real time. Also see any updates or changes made instantly. I would highly recommend this tool for engagement and participation with events or itineraries. It is ideal for participants within a group or if you are attending solo. I found that it was very helpful to stay in contact with persons I met during the first day and meet new people as well. Loads of input and output. I can’t say enough.

Highly recommend
I used WHOVA both on a computer and on my phone to follow the Statistics in Pharmaceuticals conference (SIP2021). I can say I liked the experience. I were able to see the agenda and select the part that interested me to put reminders on my own calendars. Whova allows presenters to add the materials for the participants, and it’s a good way for participants to network since they can see each other’s profile and interact. One particular is that we were asked to list our interest, and based on them we could see which participants shared the same. That’s an excellent way to filter out the hundreds of participants in a conference. I will definitely recommend WHOVA for future activities.

Whova app
This app was very helpful for the 2023 Al-Anon International Convention in Albuquerque, NM. It is user friendly and easy to navigate. Two things that were particularly helpful were the map of the Convention Center site and a complete list of the agenda, both of which I printed. The agenda gave complete details of all meetings and workshops including times and locations which I referred to often. The photos submitted by attendees were a nice place to check out who was attending among those who submitted their pictures and info. The ability to receive and send messages to other members provided the opportunity to connect with specific members among the approximately 4000 people at the event.

A real online conference
The East Coast Genetic Genealogy Conference was conducted entirely on Whova. All the elements of a real conference were there in the comfort of my living room. Evan a lost and found department (which spawned quite a few wisecracks). The attendees were all accessible plus multiple sessions in each time segment, but we get to watch them all! I can’t give them 5 stars yet because there were some rough spots, but I expect hiccups in a new platform. I enjoyed learning the environment in the week leading up to actual conference. All the poking around earned me points which put me on the “Leader Board”, which created some element of competition, but only 10 of the 350+ attendees were so featured. I see tremendous opportunity for development of an online genealogical community.

I’ve used Whova two years in a row now for an annual conference, and it’s been incredibly fun. The thing I like most is how it drastically improves the overall experience of the conference. Historically, attending conferences would require a significant amount of schedule planning to make sure events, workshops, panels, meetings, and lectures wouldn’t be missed. In addition, meeting all the people you were hoping to meet was extremely difficult. With Whova, the scheduling is vastly simplified and easy to access through the app, plus all the attendees are listed, and you can link up at any time to anyone you like within the app. My favorite part of the app is the Leaderboard, which I targeted as my personal challenge, and in fact dominated the #1 position throughout the conference, with over 90,000 points! There us a section where you can post Questions for any session, and the speakers can interact directly with you or adapt their session to address the question. Perfect! I don’t know that I would want to attend a conference in the future if it wasn’t using the Whova app.

My first virtual conference with a five star experience!!
GoalMakers2021 was my first virtual conference to attend. Most part of the conference along with its activities could be accomplished through whova mobile apps. I think team whova did an excellent job. I gave it 10 out of 10 even though I was little disappointed that they didn’t allow simultaneous use of two devices by an attendee. I would have preferred to use the laptop for the panel discussion and the mobile phone for networking. But after all the two days conference ended with no major hassles or interruptions. Two of our board members assigned for our Exhibit booth could not sign in for some technical reasons.

Great app
This app kept me up to date with all the sessions at my conference. I could bookmark sessions I planned to attend & the app offered optional reminders for those upcoming sessions. Each session had a page explaining the who/what/where/why of event & included a bio of the presenter. Whova also provided a platform for attendees to reach out to presenters & fellow attendees to connect, share ideas, ask questions, or just plan for group meet ups. One of the most helpful features was the video page where recorded session videos allowed those of us who missed a session to watch it after the fact. I definitely recommend this app for any conference you might attend.

Very quirky, but works if you work at it
We used this for an annual industry conference this year due to COVID. Many participants experienced audio and visual difficulties. We were able to work through this using the Whova chat function and logging in to the meetings directly on Zoom. Be very careful not to click on any chat “pop ups” that appear on your screen when you are in a session. If you do, you will be removed from your session to view the chat box. When you reenter the session, you will be put into the session “waiting room” and the session facilitator will need to readmit you. I do hope that we can begin to have our conferences in person again soon. This conferencing platform is a great idea, and I’m sure Whova will work through the bugs in their software over time. However, there are so many software bugs and usability issues that an app like this will never be able to take the place of in person learning.

Very impressive and user-friendly experience!
I used the Whova app for a recent conference was blown away by how closely it matched the best features of an in-person experience. Prior to the event I was able to connect via personal message with like-minded people and start good conversations. As a speaker, I appreciated the feature that allowed attendees to post questions to my session prior to the day of the conference, which helped me adapt my talk to be relevant to my audience’s interests. (This feature isn’t usually available at an in-person event!). The integration with Zoom was smooth and user-friendly. I would highly recommend Whova to conference organizers and participants.

I really appreciated the app and found it most useful as I am New to the Board of Commissioners and I was a “First Time Conference Attendee.” I did quite a bit of networking thru the app and made some, hopefully, lifetime friends! I did find that a lot of conference attendees did not take advantage of the app and that was a bit puzzling to me but I guess once you’ve been to so many, you may not need as much guidance and already know what to expect? As for me, I found it extremely useful and would definitely use it for the upcoming Colorado Conference which I am looking forward to😉 I thank you and feel that without the app, I would have been lost.🤔 I do appreciate you and thank you for listening!

The next best thing to bring there!
The Whova app made my first multi-day virtual conference an unexpectedly rewarding experience. Installation was simple, loading the meeting info was a snap, and selecting among optional sessions was a breeze. I liked the ability to flip quickly between My Agenda and the whole conference agenda to see what I might be missing. The embedded video links were seamless on my iPhone and conveniently linked out to a desktop for larger format viewing. The session Q&A and real-time chat functions created the interactive piece that is usually lacking in most web conferences. Virtual conferences will never quite match in-person events but Whova makes it feel like you’re part of a real meeting!

Spammy, glitchy, and non-existent support.
I really wish my organization wouldn’t insist on using this awful app. Five minutes after registering an account, I was bombarded with porn spam. The app constantly sends me irrelevant push notifications (I don’t need to be notified that an evangelical conference is happening 1,500 miles away) and even though I updated my contact info in the app a year ago, I’ve been unable to get Whova to update the same info on my actual account so I can’t log in to my conference because the organizer has my current info but Whova won’t update the same info on my account. If you’re considering Whova because you think it’ll make your life easier, I can assure you that it will not. Since my organization started using Whova three years ago it has become infinitely more cumbersome and annoying to register for and attend our annual conference.

Great Communication Tool!
I was pleasantly surprised using this app! Not only did it provide the conference sessions and map, it also allowed me to build and save my own schedule with opportunities to add my own or small team event. I loved that the app allowed me to reach out to others to build my network and also communicate with cohorts and teammates. I didn’t have everyone’s cell on my team, but the app still allowed me to message them and search for others I didn’t already know were attending. Every time I opened the app I found a new useful feature! It was very helpful and useful, and a great collaboration and networking tool!

Fantastic platform with multiple features
This is my first time to use Whova, and it was for NCL leadership conference. For my job I use several different online platforms (Teams, Zoom, etc), and Whova exceeded my expectations. Good for NCL for selecting this platform. Good for Whova for understanding the needs of its customers and providing a versatile and easy to use platform, both in the app and desktop. I joined large sessions 1500+ attendees with keynote speakers and also small 20-30 breakout sessions. I liked the agenda and attention to details for individual sessions. Everything worked well. Meeting in person has its benefits, but I recommend this platform for any virtual event.

This app is SO helpful!
Great app and very functional :) I loved all of the service items within. It was my first time using this app for an event and found it extremely helpful!!! By having the app, I can review the agenda, and see the attendee list, which is great for targeting specific leads, and engage in messaging with other conference attendees. It's a great tool for networking at conferences. Our company used Whova to generate leads at the conferences/events. We are also able to start relationship building right away by engaging in texting and conversation groups through the app. As a person with background of Operations / IT project management / Sales, I would say Whova is definitely an impressive platform.

My great experience with this app.
Are use the Whova app when I attended Equity Conference at the signature grand event. My experience using this app was very intriguing I got a chance to meet and see new people from all different perspectives. It allow me to document and see all the good festivities and be a part of it as if I was right there in everyone’s pictures. I give this application if I have a review. I have been recommending it to my superiors family members coworkers and others that I have encountered. The equity call conference was very enlightening on how thanks are in the school system. I was a case of Miss Katrice Dixon and would love to attend next year‘s event.

As a guest of the conference, all of the pertinent information was accessible through the Whova app. This app is extremely user friendly, easy to navigate, allows for real time updates for last minute changes, exchange of contact info and uploaded documents made super easy and a contact list and photos of all attendees. So much info at my fingertips. I was notified that the Summit info will be available for several months and can be downloaded. What a great way to communicate with those you know and making new connections along the way!

Exceptional interface for online interaction
Combining live zoom presentations with multiple virtual exhibitors, conference attendee chat functions and more...I can’t imagine a conference, class or event this app would not be a great supplement to. Even when we can go back to meeting in person, it is valuable to connect with attendees, be able to go back and watch speakers your schedule wouldn’t allow at the time of the live event, etc. I was an attendee and felt it was seamless. I will have to read reviews of those who had to use it to create the virtual event but can’t imagine it want also intuitive for organizers. I bet my daughter wishes her professors would use this!!!

Excellent Conference Tool
Whova provides an amazing platform for communication to attendees from conference hosts as well as among attendees themselves. The entire conference agenda is provided on the app, so the total experience including one’s itinerary is close at hand at all times. Any changes or additional instructions can also be communicated immediately. Session presenters can share specific information about their topic as well as post poll questions and accept attendee questions in real time during the session. Session attendees may also vote according to their interest in particular questions so the presenter can judge the level of interest if time is limited. The ability to post photos from the conference or elsewhere is fun, often informative and a simple but effective method for large groups to communicate on a personal level. It’s difficult to appreciate how inconvenient and cumbersome working with paper and/or emails used to be until one experiences the comprehensive ease of the Whova app!

Unfamiliar to Familiarity
Honestly, I never heard of Whova app until I attended the Maryland Crime Victim Conference. This app was offered for participants to use. I must say that this is awesome interactive app as participants were able to converse with each other virtually and it gave the feel that you were actually face to face….. there were numerous topics that were provided and as participants….. you were able to post different topics, conversations, articles etc. I would highly recommend this app… if you want to feel apart and integrate your skills. I went from unfamiliar to familiarity as I was number one on the WHOVA app for the conference.

Perfect for multiple day events
It's like have the Disney World app for the convention center! Everything you need to know, how to contact and network with other attendees, and most importantly, a calendar of events. It's hard enough for me to keep the days apart, much less the individual sessions so the reminders with custom alerts was very helpful. An added benefit would be the fact that the organizers can actually reach out to all attendees instantly, which came in handy when someone lost their keys at the convention center. Great app! Thanks for making three days of chaos run just a little smoother.

Love the App but not the networking feature
I really love apps like this during a conference. It can help you connect with others and keep your schedule. I am giving this app 3 stars for ONE reason and ONE reason only - I CAN’T easily create groups or networking events. I can easily “favorite” someone, but I can’t send a blast invite or text thread. This can easily be improved. If there are 500 attendees, I should not have to look them up one-by-one. So instead, I sent an email. I would have rather used the app. Also, if we want to add a networking event to our schedule - selecting participants/invitees is too difficult. Why is there a favorite feature if you can’t do anything with it… if I am overlooking it… i dunnoh

It needs to work out some kinks
On the whole, I’m glad to use the app for an event I’m attending. But Whova does some faulty things. For example, the event I’m going to is something people will drive from their home to, but Whova sets it up a “carpool from the airport”. So you have to say your airport and flight and then explain later that you’re not coming from any airport. Worse, when you post there, Whova makes a statement “Hi guys, I want to join the carpool!” which is obnoxious and confusing, since they make it appear like you said that but you didn’t- you wouldn’t- in the context of rideshare it doesn’t make sense- there’s no carpool yet. Are you driving? Do you need a ride? That’s relevant information. But Whova makes you look like some idiot who is trying to join a nonexistent carpool.

Whova Support is non existent
Whova tech support does not exist. They implemented an update that wiped out our speakers and vendors uploaded information the day before our conference. They are West coast based. We are East coast. Tech support is only available when they open. With every issue that came up they immediately blame the issue on something we did or were doing. After the first day of our three day event they did a security update that wiped out the compatibility between Whova and Zoom. Our second day is 1/2 over and no resolution to the chat issue. They are very cavalier with their support. When their update wiped out the data for vendors and presenters they suggested we just reload the information less than 8 hours before our conference. I would not recommend Whova to anyone searching for a platform to use for a virtual conference. Terrible, terrible tech support.

Great app for organizing events
We recently experienced the Whova app when at a company function in Sonoma California. I found the app to be very intuitive and easy to use and navigate. Having our agendas and calendars at our fingertips, everyone’s contact information, uploading photos, and creating new forums was a cinch. Also, I won first place on the leaderboard - which I didn’t even realize was a thing until I received notification about it. We had a fun time trying to outdo each other with our leaderboard points! I highly recommend this app for any type of corporate event.

Great Conferencing Experience
I’ve attended 2 conferences using Whova. The first I was 100% virtual. The second I attended in person but also utilized after session recordings to maximize the content I was able to see and credits gained towards professional relicensure. Once I became familiar with the format it was great!! It did initially take a bit of effort to navigate due to my inexperience with the virtual format. The convenience of seeing the full agenda, signing up for sessions, and asking questions through the app is unparalleled. Also having access to handouts and slide sets once I am back in the office is great!

Best Event App Out There
I attended a conference for work. As it was my first time attending a conference as well as being in a state I have not really been in. This app delivered in all aspects. I can easily navigate the 14 story hotel using the built in schematics the event organizers provided. I can interact with all the presenters and attendees to build connections and download presentation documents, brochures, and high level overviews of my events. If you use the app correctly it will not disappoint. If I ever have to host a large event I will definitely be looking at using this application! Kudos to the devs as this app “to me” is simply amazing!

Easy to Use Conference App
I participated in a remote conference using Whova recently and was impressed with its performance and functionality. Seven months into the pandemic, I’ve used several of these apps for virtual conferences and meetings. Whova is perhaps the best one I’ve used so far: it’s easy to navigate, allows participants to create meet ups, has a job messaging area, and other functionality I have not seen before. The only thing that I think the developers need to work on is to make it easier to toggle between sessions and the overall agenda. That seemed to actually work better on my iPhone that on my laptop.

Video stream is sporadic, keynote address not loaded
This is my first “hybrid” conference where I am attending as a virtual participant. Some of the livestream presentations have loaded fine, but live streams with the keynote speaker (and most attendees), loaded late with a wait clock with sound only, or with missing the presentation entirely. I was instructed to bypass the app and instead use Chrome. However, Chrome either opened the app with no livestream or a page to go to the Apple Store to download the app, thus not functional for the conference presentation. I closed the app and restarted. I contacted whova support who sent me non-functional links. After the keynote presentation ended, the livestream loaded in the app. I am thoroughly frustrated.
