101 Ideas: Four social media and event apps to try

Apps such as Evenstagram and Livecube can help event planners capture and aggregate live event content and share with a wider audience via social media.

Social site
Moment.me allows organisers to create a simple, easy-to-edit mobile site for their event with content aggregated from all the major social media channels including Facebook, Twitter and Google+. The site is compatible with any device, via web or app, and also features a shop function.

Tweet tracking
Reading through delegates' tweets after an event is time-consuming. Nifty little app Livecube associates tweets with specific panels or keynote speakers, making it a much easier task. It also offers incentives to those who tweet the most or sign into the most sessions.

Picture feed
Brands including O2, Nike and Red Bull are fans of Eventstagram. The web-based tool is synched with photo-sharing network Instagram to offer live slideshows of events on a big screen using attendees’ snaps, creating a buzz on social media. Themes and colour-ways can all be customised and logos added.

QR Codes
Treasure hunt specialist Wildgoose has developed an app to encourage delegates at international events to venture out of their hotel and explore the destination in groups. Since content is available via a QR code, the app can be completely self-run, meaning attendees can fit it around their event schedule.
