A new Mobile App for matching International Association Conferences with Potential Local Hosts

  • Published by Vedat
The Global Industry Development Network (GIDN) launched their newest business development tool for use by Convention Bureaus and Centres who target the international association conference market, with a mobile app called “GNR8”.

For the meetings industry it can be used to match an Association’s “call for bids” with potential local hosts from within the user’s city.

Having been trialled in the US and Canada for the last 12 months, the app is now ready for download free of charge through the iPhone App Store and on Android at Google Play, to receive qualified and exclusive leads there is a subscription version which can be accessed through the App or by visiting which accesses full business development services.

One organisation involved in the testing phase, Tourism Saskatoon in Canada’s Saskatchewan province, found the app extremely beneficial. In 12 months, over 22 new leads entered their sales pipeline which have so far resulted in 4 bid wins, representing almost 5,000 delegates and $4.7 million in direct delegate expenditure.

Another user involved in the trial, the World Trade and Convention Centre Halifax, also from Canada, in just 8 months was able to generate another 42 new conference leads into their sales pipeline with 3 wins so far. These conferences will start to materialise as they open a new state of the art convention centre in 2016.

To download GNR8 and enjoy the many free services on offer, visit the iPhone App Store or Google Play and search for GNR8, or to get customised leads started register through the partner section.
