Q&A from Whova
1) Can I continue to use the Whova app to keep in touch with fellow attendees?
Absolutely! You can follow up with the people you met or those you couldn’t connect with during the event through the in-app messages, e-business card requests, and Community posts.
2) Other than that, what can I do with the app? The event is already over.
Receive updates about future events from your event organizers. And most of all, many events use Whova world-wide, so in the near future if you attend any other events, you do not need to download the app again. So, keep and use the Whova app as a central place to manage all of your event networking activities.
3) How long will the event information remain on the app?
We will keep the event information (e.g., agenda) for 3 months, or longer upon the organizer’s request. However, your contacts, messages, and scanned cards will not be removed.
