Introducing the 2014 ESA Annual Meeting App!

If you’re thinking of going green, then ESA’s new meeting app is for you. This is our first app and we hope it makes the print program optional for attendees who want to reduce their paper use. This native app contains everything you will need to plan your meeting experience, including session information, presentation schedules, abstracts, maps, floor plans, a trade show directory, local attractions, and more.

If you already use ESA’s online personal scheduler, you can sign in through the app to download your schedule to your mobile device. Alerts during the meeting will announce important information such as weekend registration hours, when each plenary is about to start, and where to find the coffee during breaks.

Plan ahead

  • Browse and search for sessions, special events, presentations, and speakers
  • Read abstracts
  • Download your personal schedule from the online program (if you built one)
  • Build (or edit an existing) personal schedule from directly within the app
  • Note cancellations

How to download and use the app
