Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, June 13, 2012
Dallas Market Center has unveiled a new mobile app and an expanded campus-wide Wi-Fi network in hopes of enhancing the Market experience for buyers and exhibitors.
"Business success is becoming increasingly dependent on mobile devices," said Cindy Morris, COO, Dallas Market Center. "Connectivity is crucial to the exchange between buyers and exhibitors. With our new mobile app and enhanced Wi-Fi system, Dallas Market Center is at the forefront of the industry and will continue to be a leader in tradeshow technology."
The new Dallas Market mobile app is available in the iTunes store for the iPhone and iPad. The update includes live data that can be set to automatically refresh each time the app is opened, so information can update in real time. Other new features include quick searching, screen rotation, improved maps, calendar integration, social media tools and shuttle and DART rail information.
Buyers and exhibitors are encouraged to delete the previously downloaded app and add the new Dallas Market App to their mobile devices. Those without a smartphone or tablet can see the app in action at any information booth across campus during Market.
To support its new mobile initiative, Dallas Market Center has also expanded its free Wi-Fi system. Nearly 300 Wi-Fi access points have been installed along with 10 times the system's original bandwidth, creating a network that covers the 5 million-sq.-ft. campus.
