The BC Chapter of Meeting Professionals International has recognized Vancouver's QuickMobile for its positive impact on the meetings and conventions industry.
During the chapter’s National Meetings Industry Day (NMID) at the Vancouver Convention Centre, QuickMobile, a developer of mobile apps, received the NMID Influence Award. The award recognizes people or organizations that have supported the development of meetings and conventions or the development of policy and programs impacting the industry.
In 2011, QuickMobile delivered more than 300 mobile event apps to customers around the world.
According to their press release yesterday, QuickMobile was the first company to develop an application for the iPhone and the iPad; the first to deploy an app for all five major mobile platforms for a single event; and the first to deploy a mobile meeting app with game-style incentives.
In November of 2011, QuickMobile announced that it closed a $1.3 million investment from Vancity, Canada’s largest credit union.
