Member engagement with association networking tools

The annual meeting of your association offers unparalleled opportunities to advance your industry. The relationships built at your events lead to a fruitful exchange of ideas and collaboration between peers. Your association members want to feel part of a community, to meet like-minded professionals and be inspired by their conversations. And that sense of community will positively impact retention. 

Grip’s annual meeting app connects your members to one another. Using over 50 AI strategies simultaneously, its advanced matchmaking tools ensure the right people meet. Whether matching supply to demand or peer to peers, our networking software is designed to maximize interaction. Recommendations of who to meet, plus easy meeting scheduling will guarantee more business relationships at your event.

Easy to access professional development

To meet your members’ developmental needs, your education program needs to accommodate varying levels of experience. Creating education tracks and streams to cater for everyone is important but can be challenging using spreadsheets alone. You’ll need to ensure that everyone is aware of the event program you’ve so meticulously put together, and can easily find the sessions they need. 

Schedule concurrent tracks, roundtables, speed-networking and keynote sessions; your event programs are easy to navigate on Grip's annual meeting platform. With advanced permission settings, you can create private sessions and streams to limit access by attendee type. Attendees can add sessions to their personal schedules in advance, and access them during the event on the fully-customizable annual meeting mobile app.
