Event Planner App Concept

This is a concept planned, based on experiences of the attendees at a Conference. The names used for the app, persons or conference do not exist in reality. For the sake of presenting my portfolio, I have picked up a small problem to be worked on.

Problems statements from the Story
Riti is not a person who can make decissions by herself. She spoke to Anita and then decided to attend the event
She went through the Agenda, but did not freeze on the sessions. There could have been multiple reasons,
The website did not have personalised approach, where she could mark the sessions
She could have made a note of it on paper or in her mobile notes, but was a time consuming task
Riti wanted to check if any of her friends were attedning the event, so she could plan for the same

During the event
She had the printed copy of the Agenda, but it took time for her to flip the pages and decide on the sessions
She was not sure how occupied the conference room would be


Approach planned

Provide the options to search the sessions quickly based on time on tracks
Provide ratings for the app
Show people from users network
