Real-time mobile app released for Pittcon 2014

Pittsburgh, PA – A new free download app, Pittcon 2014, has been released for iOS and Android devices. Aimed at being a valuable resource tool before, during and after the Pittcon 2014 Conference & Exposition, it will act as an all-inclusive real-time show guide with details on exhibiting companies, technical sessions and short courses.

“As the use of mobile devices rises, it’s no longer a convenience, but a necessity to offer an app for any conference and exposition of this size,” says Jenna Sabot, marketing assistant. “Pittcon has always been about innovations, so it only makes sense for us to implement the latest technology.” She added, “Providing an app is not only beneficial to attendees, but helps reduce the costs associated with producing a final program and also contributes greatly to our ‘go green’ initiatives.”


The conference app is available in the App Store and in the Android market by searching for Pittcon 2014. It is also easily accessible through the iPod Touch, Android tablet and Kindle Fire.


Pittcon 2014 takes place March 2-6, 2014 at the McCormick Center in Chicago. It is the world’s largest annual conference and exposition on laboratory science and is organized by The Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy, a Pennsylvania not-for-profit educational corporation which is comprised of the Spectroscopy Society of Pittsburgh (SSP) and the Society for Analytical Chemists of Pittsburgh (SACP).


The event attracts more than 18,000 attendees from industry, academia and government from 90 countries worldwide.
