Lanyon Meetings Core Features Networking


Intelligently match your exhibitors, attendees, members and sponsors based on interests and availability. Control the number of attendee messages and meeting credits to limit spam and incentivize relevant meetings. Plus, intelligent scanning provides a fast and convenient way for people to exchange contact information via NFC or QR code.


Increase engagement among your attendees with a public or private social community before, during and after your event. Featured within your mobile event app or desktop web portal, OmniStream allows you to curate an expansive variety of content — event activity, industry news, photos, user-generated discussions and social media contributions — to drive conversations around the issues that matter most to your attendees.


Personalize messages before, during and after the event based on attendee profiles, interests and behaviors. Fine-tune your marketing efforts with metrics on open rates, response trends and message performance — to increase engagement and registrations for your event!


Gain in-depth insights and intelligence on your attendees’ interests, habits and behavior as they experience your event. With this information, you can quickly respond to trends as they happen, analyze ROI for your event, exhibitors and sponsors, and identify growth opportunities for your future events.

Devices supported

iOS, Android, Mobile web, plus the option of WindowsPhone, BB10, and Desktop Web.


Built into our mobile event technology, presentation slides, polls and session surveys are automatically pushed to all session attendees — while attendees can submit or vote for questions via their mobile device. Increase interaction between speakers and attendees, while ensuring more accurate responses.

Live polling

Smart integration of our audience response software with MS PowerPoint means all audience interaction elements are designed into the presentation ahead of the session. Polls will automatically unlock and become available for audience response at all key points — without the need for AV switching or a second moderator.

Results are displayed graphically via conventional charts or as a word cloud. This latter feature is particularly useful for brainstorming sessions, as it provides a “temperature check” for prevailing sentiment in a room.

Q&A management

Questions are submitted via the app and appear on a “league table” — attendees can either vote for a question they like or submit a new one.

Session evaluation

At the end of a session, a survey is pushed to attendees for immediate feedback — which increases the number of surveys completed and elicits more accurate responses.


Take your mobile event app to the next level. Available for iOS and Android mobile devices, Designer Layout provides organizers the flexibility to custom-design the look and feel of their mobile app. You can also use custom images in place of home screen icons, or prioritize app elements.


Attendees can easily search, find and connect with other attendees, exhibitors and sponsors to arrange meetings. For hosted buyer programs, 1:1 Meetings seamlessly manages meeting requests, agendas, meeting locations, meeting rules, meeting credits and more.
Lanyon Mobile 1to1 Meetings Automated Emails

Automated emails

Inform, remind and notify participants of every aspect of the meeting (or hosted buyer program) and their involvement. To drive interest in your program, send personalized newsletters regarding recommended matches and available times, and to schedule meetings.

Automate availability check

Reduce the amount of time managing one-on-one meetings or a hosted buyer program. Lanyon Mobile automatically checks the availability of all meeting participants, and only suggests times that work for both parties. Block out times — such as keynotes or networking events — to ensure attendees are getting the most out of your event and their meeting appointments.

Meeting credits

Encourage attendees to only schedule the highest quality meetings at your event. Provide attendees with a limited number of messages or meeting credits, incentivizing them to schedule meetings that are most relevant for them.

Organizer dashboard

Get a full view of all the meetings taking place via a single dashboard. Organize meetings on behalf of your attendees or exhibitors, control how many meetings can be made, or manage meeting room capacity and limits.

Personalized agendas

Every request, appointment or change is instantly reflected in real-time to the participants’ mobile devices. This includes all the essential information — profile and social media links, company profile, and even product specifications — to make the meeting a success.


Create an onsite social center for your event! Hook up the web portal to a single monitor — or to multiple monitors located strategically throughout your event. The Event Wall encourages attendees to view and participate in the online discussion — including posts, photos and event content from your OmniStream activity, as well as messages that you and your sponsors schedule to display.



The innate desire for people to collect, compete and gain recognition is a powerful driver of behavior. Encourage particular attendee actions — while driving engagement, excitement and education at your event — with mobile gaming elements such as trophies, badges and QR scans.
Key Features: Trophies, badges, leaderboard, time-based QR scans, custom and standard games



Make it easy for your attendees to quickly find the right products, services and sessions at your next conference or tradeshow. Easily “favorite” sessions and exhibitors, zoom in and out of the map, get information on specific exhibitors, and show maps for events spanning multiple facilities. With our proprietary CAD mobile tool, we’re able to take CAD files, convert them, and render them for mobile — seamlessly working with data in our CMS.
Features include: Map zooming, multi-hall facilities, route-finding CAD tool



Deliver next-level engagement with location-based targeting and gain better insight into attendee behavior.
