There’s A New App In Town: Road To California

Road to California App.Road App 3 Since May 2015, we have been working on this new application. Says Matt Reese, Show Manager, “The Road to California App is bringing our show in to the future. Using the app provides reliability knowing we can share the most current information about the show in real time.” Another benefit of the app: it supports Road to California’s efforts in sustaining a green environment.  The app is replacing the Show Book, reducing the huge amount of paper used to publish the books.

What are some of the app features?

  • A map to help guests locate everything at the show: Classes, Vendors, Special Exhibits, and even food
  • A personal schedule so guests can plan out what to see and do, including the $5 Lectures.
  • A listing of Exhibitors so guests can locate them on the showroom floor. Guests can keep track of the products they are interested in, and have the exhibitors’ contact information for after the show.
  • A listing of Teachers, their classes, and their contact information.
  • A listing of Sponsors.
  • Information about the Daily Drawings.
  • Menus for each of the food buffets served each day.Road App4
In addition, guests can join in the fun sharing their pictures, comments, reviews and ratings of the show with other guests. Users can even earn badges for their participation with the app!!

How do you get started?

To get the free app, for Apple users, go to the App Store and search for Road to California. Google users need to go to the Play Store and search for RoadToCalifornia (all one word).  It’s best to download the app before you come to the show so that you can become familiar with its features.Road App 2

What if I don’t have a smart device? Or I forget to bring my smart device?

No worries. There will be two iPad stations in the Convention Center (each having five iPads running the app) available for guests to use. Road Staff will be on hand to answer questions and  guide guests with their app questions. And for those guests who just can’t manage the app this year, there will be a small number of traditional Show Books available. The Road to California App allows guests to customize their Road 2016 experience and keep their information long after the show has ended. Carolyn Reese, show owner, is thrilled to offer this new addition. “We are excited to provide better and more information to our guests using the app than we ever could with a show book.” What feature are you looking forward to using on the Road to California App?  ]]>

    I was blown away by the feature that shows you how to get from Vendor to Vendor.

  2. RachelMarie says:

    Looks very interesting…will there be wifi available at the show?

  3. Cheryl says:

    The idea is great, BUT…
    The permissions required are too much. This app shouldn’t require my contacts, etc, shouldn’t require to post to my social media profiles, and shouldn’t require to post “on my behalf!”

    • This only happens when you sign in from a Linked In, Facebook, or Twitter Account. If you sign in directly on the App, it will not ask you for this information.

    A vendor that I know will be here does not show up when I search the exhibitors. Also there are lots of booths on map with no info

    • Some of the vendors did not give us their contact information before the show. We are trying to add those vendors and their locations as soon as possible.
