Success Story Messe München

infsoft has developed an iOS and ANDROID app in close collaboration with MEPLAN – a subsidiary of Messe München – which is designed for the special requirements of trade fairs. This app enables visitors to plan their trade fair visit more efficiently. Contextual content highlights categories in which the visitors are interested on the maps of a trade fair. Indoor positioning and navigation lead them to their preferred exhibitors on the fastest possible route. With augmented reality, visitors can keep track in large exhibition halls. This solution is now no longer used solely in Munich: over 60 different trade fairs in seven countries over three continents use this app.

Range of Functions

The application displays all exhibitors alongside detailed information, product images and contact details. In addition to the favorites feature, exhibitors can also be contacted directly or shared via the usual social media channels.

Using the product highlights, all relevant providers matching the user's interests are highlighted directly on the map. This means you can find all providers within a product segment – without having to know the brand names.

The comprehensive overarching event program is presented clearly and offers a wealth of information on the topics and speakers. In addition to a bookmark and reminder function, events can also be exported into your smartphone's calendar.

All forums, special shows, restaurants and fair highlights can be displayed on the map. This makes orientation easier and shines a spotlight on the most important on-site facilities.

The interactive 2D/3D maps depict the entire exhibition grounds and the surrounding area. Users can quickly and easily reach their desired destinations on the premises using the route guidance with multi-level support.

The application offers a convenient overview of all transport connections to the exhibition center and also provides information on delays and schedule changes.
