Building communities is priority No. 1 for Skoop, a communal app allowing event attendees to stay connected with each other year-round. Use it as your on-site app and keep everyone engaged until your next show.


Your speakers will love LikeSo, an app that acts as a personal speech coach. It tracks your verbal habits to train you against using filler words such as “like,” “actually” and “you know.” Like, awesome!


Nothing beats the personal touch of a handwritten note after making a new connection. Punkpost spares you the hand cramps by sending the physical letter for you. Choose your card design, type your message and pay—it’s that simple.
