The challenge

The Fresh Perspectives conference is an annual event that brings together leading figures in the contentious trusts space for an informative selection of sessions, followed by networking. After a two-year hiatus, following the effects of the pandemic, the conference organisers (Partners from Boodle Hatfield, Clifford Chance, Forsters, Stephenson Harwood and Taylor Wessing) were looking to kickstart the annual conference once again.

The organisers wanted to explore a digital solution to firstly, build a sense of community among attendees before, during and after the conference and secondly, take steps to minimise the use of physical supporting materials.

“The team at 14OhFour delivered an engaging and functional event app against a tight deadline. They effectively managed the expectations of seven different stakeholders whilst being approachable and commercial. From my previous experience of working with Nathan, I was confident in their ability but in fact the team exceeded my expectations and delivered on every level.”

Our approach

We worked with the conference organisers – after listening to their requirements – to develop a cross-device event app. Naturally, as a trusted partner agency, we turned to Fliplet as our app platform of choice.

The Fresh Perspectives event app allowed attendees to sign up and create their profile, prior to the event, and access all of the relevant information they were going to need for the duration of the event. This included a detailed and personalised itinerary of the sessions, logistics of the event, and a full directory of all attendees with chat functionality allowing networking via in-app messaging.

With the introduction of in-app and push notifications the event organisers were able to communicate with attendees in a much more natural way, rather than clogging up inboxes with unread emails.

“The app was very well received by everybody in attendance. The introduction of an event app helped elevate the conference this year and we received some great feedback. Nathan delivered an excellent service throughout but was especially responsive and accommodating during the conference when we needed to make last minute changes quickly – it was a pleasure to work with him."

The results

The Fresh Perspectives event app was well-received by conference attendees, rating it highly in the post-conference survey (conducted via the app!). Highlights of the app include:
  • 900+ app sessions
  • 3,500+ screen views
  • 5,000+ app interactions

“Loved the app. So good to be able to see people’s info and I found myself plugging into it often to check session details etc.” – Event attendee
