American Boating Congress (ABC) is releasing a new, free smartphone app to attendees prior to its conference in May. The app is designed to help attendees navigate the ABC conference. The ABC app offers:
- a comprehensive event schedule to access the ABC agenda, receptions and schedule Hill visits
- improved Congressional directories and Capitol Hill Google maps
- policy briefs and talking points to guide conversations on the Hill
- social media updates and sharing options
In addition, after each Hill meeting, attendees will have the opportunity to take a 30-second survey to let staff know who they spoke to. In turn, the staff will follow up with members of Congress who need more information about the industry or issues. The ABC app can be downloaded from smartphone app stores.
