McGraw-Hill Construction Launches ENR FutureTech Event-Driven Mobile App
New York, NY – November 17, 2011
McGraw-Hill Construction has developed an Apple- and Android-based mobile app for Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) FutureTech Conference in San Francisco on December 12-13. By providing an enhanced user experience to digital subscribers and onsite attendees, McGraw-Hill Construction continues to expand its offerings in the digital space, helping attendees navigate during an event and helping those at home connect to the event proceedings as well.
“This mobile app is the latest in a series of efforts to provide customers with relevant, rich information, data and analysis online—and now in the palm of their hands,” said Jan Tuchman, editor-in-chief, Engineering News-Record. “As smart phone use goes mainstream worldwide, we are excited to be able to offer this innovative tool and help customers connect to us and each other in immediate and resourceful ways. I am excited everyone will be able to use this new app at ENR FutureTech next month.”
The app brings event information to attendees in real-time, including program, speaker and sponsor updates, and event-related news. Attendees will be able to connect directly to prominent industry leaders and conference presenters such as Chris Luebkeman, Director, Global Foresight & Innovation, Arup; James Vandezande; Principal, HOK; Scott Fairgrieve, CFO, Shimmick Construction Co, Inc., and Allen Emerick, IT Director, Skanka, as well as leading industry organizations, including Viewpoint Construction Software, CMiC, and the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). Other features of the app include links to speakers social media accounts, direct tweeting capabilities, and the full agenda.
McGraw-Hill Construction’s first event-driven app was developed in April 2011 for the Construction FutureTech Conference in New York City. As a follow-up to that event due to popular demand, ENR FutureTech this December will focus on the advanced technology systems that are shaping the built environment for audiences in San Francisco in December.
