NEW YORK, July 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- For the second consecutive year, avVenta Worldwide and the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) have partnered to provide attendees at their 2012 Digital and Social Media Conference, held on July 15-17th in Dana Point, CA with a mobile event application. The mobile event app offers a new dimension to the overall conference experience.  Moving from traditional printed event-guides to interactive applications on smartphones, providing an integrated all in one solution.

"We are excited to be partnering with avVenta to provide conference attendees of the 2012 ANA Digital & Social Media Conference the opportunity to be 'connected' digitally through the ANA Events App, built by avVenta. It gives our members the most up to date information on the conference, along with the ability to connect with peers via the app or directly through their Facebook and/or Twitter accounts," said Barry Garbarino, Senior Director of Marketing & Creative Director, ANA.

The event guide gone digital takes interactivity and engagement to new levels.  Attendees have one touch access to critical conference information allowing users to focus on what matters most. avVenta's Product Manager, Kaci Townsend commented, "I wanted to avoid creating just another tool.  We focused on taking not only the enormous amounts of show information and making it digital, but also on integrating the capability of real time networking via social media platforms.  Our partnership with ANA has proven to be invaluable during the design process and we look forward to driving successful event participation in the future."
