With the IFAI Events app, you can view the complete schedule, including all the technical sessions, social events, and more. By downloading the app and creating a profile, you can begin to build your personal agenda even before you arrive. View session descriptions, speakers, and selected abstracts as you decide which sessions best fit your needs. Just click on the plus sign next to a session in the schedule to add it to your personal schedule. Looking for a specific topic or speaker? Use the Search feature on the home screen or side navigation bar to find the right session.
Find Your Way Around the Conference
There will be over 190 exhibitors and over 100 different sessions, courses, lectures, and social events at Geotechnical Frontiers 2017. Find your way around by viewing the Exhibit Show Floor and Hyatt Venue Maps inside the app. You can also find the location of an exhibitor or session by visiting their page in the app and clicking on the grey button at the top of the page. This will take you to their location on the map. Then zoom out to find your way. There is also a local Orlando map that shows you where the Hyatt Regency Orlando is located.

You can also send messages, take notes on conversations, and set up meetings right from the app.
