Go Green—and Even Win a Contest—With AACTE’s Event Planner
Event apps for conferences are no longer a novelty. Businesses and associations everywhere are adopting this technology to facilitate interaction with their audiences—and AACTE is no exception! In response to member requests, and to keep AACTE’s meetings up to speed with industry standards, the Association now offers a custom-designed online Event Planner with full mobile functionality.
“We developed the Event Planner to help our members better manage their time and receive real-time updates during AACTE events,” said Alexandr Gumbar, AACTE’s director of information technology, who created the platform 2 years ago and recently completed its mobile version.
The online planner takes the place of a printed conference program. A digital planner is not only more environmentally friendly than a printed one, but also more accurate: It can nimbly reflect the latest scheduling changes to provide the most up-to-date information during the event. AACTE’s application also guides you around the conference, assists with creating your agenda, notifies you of important announcements, and facilitates your feedback through surveys.
Designed to be the go-to resource for all AACTE events, the Event Planner is currently available for the AACTE 68th Annual Meeting, February 23-25, in Las Vegas, NV. You may search session information by date, session type, or presenter, just to name a few options. The Event Planner also enables you to:
- Create your own personalized schedule and save it to your digital calendar
- Access the full agenda, including session descriptions
- View presenters’ handouts and other materials in advance
- Stay connected with event announcements and surveys
- Print your final schedule, if you prefer to use paper
- Be updated in real time when changes and cancellations occur on site
- Reduce your carbon footprint

The new mobile-ready version of the Event Planner will ease your access to conference information on-the-go. The hassle-free site will automatically detect your device and link you to the appropriate platform.
“The most important aspect of the mobile format is it places all the features of the desktop version at your fingertips on your mobile device,” said Gumbar.
As an incentive for registrants to check out the AACTE Event Planner, we are running a contest for all who use it to create a custom schedule for the 68th Annual Meeting. The AACTE Event Planner Contest opens immediately and ends February 25 at 9:00 a.m. PST. It is open to all registered Annual Meeting attendees, not including AACTE staff, Board and standing committee members, sponsors, and exhibitors. On February 25, three winners will be randomly selected for a chance to win an iPad, Microsoft Surface Pro3, or KindleFire. Learn more about the contest here.
