There's an App for This!

The 2016 ATE PI Conference app is designed for iPhone, Android, and many other mobile devices. A browser-based version is available as well that can be accessed via other devices, including desktop and laptop computers. The purpose of the 2016 ATE PI Conference app is to help meeting attendees streamline access to conference information, allowing them to easily create a personal agenda for the meeting and keep track of the sessions and showcases they wish to attend. In addition, the app will help attendees make the most out of their time among ATE colleagues by managing the valuable contacts they make at the conference conveniently on their mobile device.

We recommend that attendees download the app before the conference to create their profiles. The app may be located by searching for "ATE PI 2016" in the appropriate app store. Alternately, you can use these direct links to find the app in the iTunes store (iPhone/Ipad), the Play Store (Android), the Windows Phone Store, or in Blackberry World. If you have any questions about the app or experience problems logging in, please contact us at info@atecentral.net or stop by booth #002.
