CrowdCompass Account

Access to fall of the functions of the app requires registration with CrowdCompass. If you choose not to register, some features of the application may not be available.
If no account is created, you still have the ability to  add bookmarks to sessions, speakers and exhibitors, set reminders within the My Schedule section, and  add sessions to your personal schedule. 

If an account is created, you will have the added abilities to save notes, rate the sessions, create a digital business card and exchange with other attendees, and access your personal settings across devices and the web-based version.


Create a personalized schedule

Upon opening the Event inside the app, select the “Attendees” icon (swipe left or right to see more icons in the app itself). A prompt will appear that requests you to login to the app. Enter your email address and password. The agenda will appear within your Event Compass and My Schedule (Please note: appearance may vary depending on your device type)

An easy way to sign is is by using an account you already have such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. You then type in the email adress and password you use for that service.
