In-app messaging are notifications sent to attendees within an event application. Unlike push notifications, these messages don't require users to opt-in and they can be interacted with at any time within the app. In-app messages can range from reminders about session times, updates on event schedules, to responses to attendee feedback.


Typically, in-app messages see higher engagement rates than other forms of communication. They're effective ways of driving user behaviour, from showcasing event features, promoting sessions to enhancing attendee networking. Beyond this, in-app messages provide event organizers with invaluable realtime feedback about the user experience.
