Event planning via smartphone: the BwEvents event app

Are you planning an official event and would like to use innovative software for event organization? The Cyber Innovation Hub of the Bundeswehr (CIHBw) offers the BwEvents event app, a digital platform that facilitates event and guest management with numerous digital features. Whether it's sending push notifications about the ongoing event to all participants, uploading multimedia content for the specialist conference or asking questions in real time to speakers at a conference - all this is possible with the BwEvents event app. For 2024, the CIHBw is looking for interested departments and event managers from the BMVg's business area who would like to test the CIHBw innovation project EventApp as a Service for a planned event.

There is a limited contingent and events with up to 600 guests can be invited via the event platform. The principle of limited demand applies: First come, first serve.

All information from a single source

"The ingenious thing about our EventApp as a Service is not just that it's so easy to use. Participants receive all information in real time from a single source, can check in to the event via QR code depending on the configuration by the event manager, read important information about speakers, call up all relevant program items and get in touch with other participants," explains Innovation Manager Sarah Sandmann. In addition to a modern video and image gallery function, it is also possible to set up group chat rooms.

Interested event managers can contact the function mailbox by email (see below). After an initial feasibility check, the access data and all necessary tutorials for setting up the EventApp independently will be sent to the participating departments. The CIHBw will of course be available to answer any questions regarding the onboarding of the EventApp. The innovation team is looking forward to receiving numerous expressions of interest. BwEvents can be used for official events. Members of the Bundeswehr test the EventApp exclusively on private devices.
