The Novel Coronavirus Disease is spreading rapidly across the world, and the event industry is being hit strongly. In this article, we are reaching out to our customers, prospects and industry partners to share how we are prepared to go through this crisis and what you can expect from us.
As we announced in June, Conference Compass has moved to a beautiful new office in the BINK36, a creative hotspot in The Hague. Previously occupied by the “Staatsbedrijf der Posterijen, Telegrafie en Telefonie” (Public Postal, Telegraphy and Telephony Services), the BINK36 now houses nearly two hundred creative and innovative organisations. The relocation to a bigger office became a necessity after our team outgrew the former workspace in the heart of Delft. Now, we are excited to share the first pictures of our new workspace.

Moving towards a 10-year relationship: The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) has chosen to continue their partnership with Conference Compass for another 3 years. With more than 30,000 attendees, the annual ESC Congress is the world’s premier cardiovascular conference. The society was one of the first to team up with the Delft-based App Pioneer. Together, they pursue the vision of high-quality mobile apps that truly enhance the event experience and give conference knowledge a year-round purpose.
Good news: Our apps are fully set for the future!
In June 2017, Apple updated its App Store Review guidelines. New rules were added, banning all apps created from a commercialized template or app generation service. The changes stirred up a discussion about the scope of those guidelines and definition of templated apps. This week, Apple published an amended version of the guidelines in an attempt to clarify their intentions. We welcome these clarifications as they are in line with our initial interpretation and our vision of high-quality apps.
Conference Compass, a Dutch pioneer in the world of event apps, has a mission to enable medical and scientific professionals worldwide to share and exchange knowledge that is connected to the symposia and congresses they visit. To realise this platform, the young tech company has won an innovation funding of 1M Euro from the RVO (Netherlands Enterprise Agency).
At their Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June 2017, Apple announced the biggest overhaul of their App Store in its 9-year-history. In a move to clean up the App Store before its new launch, Apple announced updates to their App Store Review Guidelines, acting more strictly on their quality guidelines for apps. This move to quality over quantity is welcomed by Conference Compass and gives opportunity to further improve our service of providing high quality customised apps to our clients.
As a specialised app developer for medical and scientific events, Conference Compass has created a customisable app solution that addresses the specific challenges and needs of national and international associations. With the Society App, associations can now move from a single event app and beyond a multi-event app by connecting events, journals & year-round activities on one mobile platform.
Conference Compass will be the mobile event app supplier for United European Gastroenterology (UEG), servicing their 25th UEG Week from October 28 – November 1, 2017. This after a successful cooperation for the UEG Week 2016 app and a record number of app downloads.
