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 would have given this app a 5 star rating, because it has been a lot of fun for our event. However, the red notification dots at the bottom keep showing up when there is nothing there to see. It keeps showing that I have 38 messages, when I've read them all, and there is nothing new to see. It keeps showing new community events when no one has added anything. Other than that small annoyance, it is a fantastic app and is really helping out attendees get to know each other better.

I used this app for the first time for the "Children Come First Conference". Based on my virtual experience, I'd say this was quite an easy Conference and the app/website were easy to navigate. You weren't able to watch the live Conference on the mobile app, but you were easily navigated to the desktop. Sound quality was great, being able to move from tab to tab was easy, it was simple to keep in touch with others, communication through the community section worked out well, ect. Overall, great!

Very robust. Two complaints- can't view the subsession descriptions when the session is going on until you've entered the livestream. It shuts off where you WERE listening before the other device actually launches, so going to computer from device you'll miss at least 90 seconds of audio, and you can't look at the agenda for future sessions on your phone while listening/watching on a computer. I would like to be asked if I want to launch session on new device before the old one disconnects.
