NETWORKING LUNCH AND TABLE-TOP EXHIBITION
 
 
This year, ERA has adopted a paperless approach for the Convention programme, in line with the environmental theme of the conference. The usual paper brochure is replaced with an interactive mobile application, which contains information about the sponsors and exhibitors as well as the full programme of the event. 
Here are some reasons to download  the app:
•  Access the event schedule and customize your agenda with personal appointments
•  See all the speakers and, read their bios
•  Check out the exhibitors and locate their booths more easily through an interactive map 
•  Get important updates through notifications
•  See who’s attending and share contact information by networking with other attendees
•  Participate in voting in workshops and answer a survey at the end of the Convention. 

The app is available for Android, iPhones and can be accessed through a web browser too.
Download and install the app from the stores (when accessed from a mobile device): https://crowd.cc/s/2zinq
The web version of the app: https://crowd.cc/eraconvention2019
