With everything HydroVision International 2013 has to offer, navigating the world's largest hydroelectric power event might seem overwhelming.
Official media partners Hydro Review, HRW-Hydro Review Worldwide and HydroWorld.com have made it easier for attendees to get the most out of their visits to Denver, however, by introducing a companion app for Android and Apple iOS devices.
The HydroVision International 2013 information is an addition to the Hydro Review news app, though users must update their apps in order to access the new section.
Once updated, users will notice a new icon in the upper right-hand portion of the screen that says "Events", which will open the new HydroVision International 2013 material.
There, users will find an interactive floorplan, conference sessions, full information about every HydroVision exhibitor, details about co-located events, product listings and more.
"The app is a great tool for HydroVision newcomers and veterans alike," HydroWorld.com editor Michael Harris said. "It has all the information included in the printed conference guide, but allows users to access it in a faster, more intuitive way."
The mobile app also integrates social media feeds, giving HydroVision International 2013 attendees an all new way of networking.
"The app pulls tweets marked '#HydroVisionIntl', making it a great way for exhibitors and speakers to let everyone know what they're doing while in Denver," Harris said.
This year's educational slate features hundreds of international hydropower industry experts spread across 70 panel discussions, three technical paper tracks and poster gallery. Meanwhile, the exhibition portion will showcase more than 300 companies and other organizations.
HydroVision International 2013 takes place July 23-26 at Denver's Colorado Convention Center.
