What makes Whova special? Whova's technology builds comprehensive profiles of attendees so you can view all attendee profiles before you even arrive at the event or conference. Plan in advance whom to meet at an event, what to talk about with each attendee and reach out to others via in-app messages before, during and after the event. You can also create casual meetups and arrange social activities with other groups of attendees. Whova revolutionizes event networking and significantly improves the ROI of attending events.

You can also use the Whova conference app to digitize and manage business cards you receive at events. Whova exceeds other business card reader apps like CamCard, CardMunch, ScanBizCards or Scannable etc. by automatically building full profiles using Whova's SmartProfile technology. This allows you to gain deep insights into your contacts' professional backgrounds, work experience, passions, and interests. You can also seamlessly connect with contacts online via LinkedIn and other platforms. Whova's business card scanning feature now supports cards in English, Chinese, and Korean.

Whova is SOC2 Type II and PCI compliant. These security and privacy certificates recognize Whova’s practice of reliable, safe, secure, and trustworthy management of user data protection and privacy.

I've barely used the app, but it's so noisy, sending all kinds of messages both via email and the app. Then the app starts bothering speakers to share their profile and ask to be recommended to other events. I downloaded this in preparation for a conference in a couple of days, but I have it paused because it's so annoying.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback! The app does allow you to disable notification for selected threads. You can go to the Community -> Right Upper Corner -> Notifications Settings, then disable the topics or types of notifications you'd like to skip. If you need further help, please let us know at support@whova.com. Best, The Whova Team

My biggest complaint is that in order for me to listen to lectures the app only allows video mode, and the screen must be kept on at all times. As soon as I open another screen to check research or an email, the lecture stops. Additionally I do a lot of driving and must listen to 20 hours of talks, and video uses tons of data which is not sustainable when driving across state. We need an option to only listen, and for the screen to be able to shut off while doing so, like Google podcasts.

Dear Paul, Thanks for the feedback. Whova supports audio playback when the app is in the background from streaming platforms that allow it. Unfortunately not all platforms allow it. For any further questions or feedback regarding the product, please feel free to contact us at support@whova.com. Best, The Whova Team

This app completely reimagines what is possible in a conference experience. It's a home base, a source of info on topics, speakers, & conference events, a way to ask questions of speakers in breakouts, & a means of connecting with other attendees. It also includes a fully integrated note taking element, with the ability to see info on an event & take notes right from that dance page. It even offers a notes section on pages for soakers & attendees. This app changes everything.
