  • Interest
  • Type

Programs that are held in various spots on the IBS show floor are also segmented out within the app:

  • High Performance Building Zone
  • IBS Jobsite Safety Zone
  • IBS Live
  • CEDIA Technology Solutions

View date, time, location, speaker(s) and detailed description of each session. Do you have a few favorite speakers you’d like to follow? Search and “favorite” them so you never miss one of their sessions.

Other IBS Mobile App Features and Tips
Here are a few other features and tips for using the IBS 2020 Mobile App:

  • Communities & Centrals: View the events within each community and IBS Centrals.
  • Favorites: Tap the star to add a session, event, speaker or exhibitor to your Favorites, which then becomes a part of your personalized agenda.
  • Notes: Make notes within the app for exhibitors, speakers, sessions and more. Each note you make is counted and noted on your “My Profile” screen (the opening screen). You can then export them—either individually or collectively—at the end of the day or when the show is done.
  • Transportation: Look up hotel shuttle routes and hours, track your shuttle using the “Shuttle Tracker” option, or find the designated area where you can wait for an Uber or Lyft ride outside the Las Vegas Convention Center.
  • Exhibit Floor Map: Need help finding your way around the show floor or finding a specific vendor? Use the map feature within the app. Zoom in to read the names of exhibitors and booth numbers—they’ll come up depending on the size of the space and the length of the name. The best way to view the map is to turn it to landscape view and use gestures to zoom in and out.
