New upgrades include revamped mobile version, RSS feeds, increase in speed
High Point, N.C., Oct. 3, 2011—The High Point Market Authority has upgraded MyMarket, its social media and planning tool that delivers everything needed to craft a successful plan for the High Point Market.
MyMarket allows attendees to customize their Market Week experiences, to find exhibitors, presenters and events, and to save selections for future reference in an itinerary. MyMarket can be accessed online to set up Market schedules and events, view contacts and exhibitors, send messages, and set meetings. It is also mobile-browser compatible for smart phones, iPads and other tablets, offering an on-the-ground ability to link up with colleagues at Market Week.
The mobile version of MyMarket has been completely revamped and now mirrors the web version in functionality. The tool also offers an RSS feed on the home page, re-organization of the interface that makes it easier to search and find information, new event grid views, alert messages, and a major increase in speed.
“MyMarket is an amazing planning tool that has been extremely popular with Market attendees. Far more functional than any app, it allows them to streamline their Market and helps make them more successful,” says Cheminne Taylor-Smith, vice president of marketing for the High Point Market Authority. “MyMarket lets you get a head-start on your Market plans before you head to High Point, and then turns your smart phone into your personal portal during Market Week, so you can keep up with the incredible array of events and exhibitors on offer.”
MyMarket gives users the ability to:
• Catch up with all the latest Market Week buzz
• Manage all Market Week activities
• Check in to events – and see who else has arrived
• View appointments
• Message friends and colleagues
For users who are not already on MyMarket, it’s easy to get started:
• Go to http://www.highpointmarket.org/MyMarket
• Create your password-protected profile
• Select your exhibitors, events, and contacts
• And turn Market Week into the most productive week of your year
