The Festival MYIFB App enables you to: 

1. Update your personal delegate profile by importing details from your Linked In account. You can also view the profiles of all other festival delegates.

2. Invite other delegates to connect with you. When you connect you will be able to chat live in the app and view each other’s contact details. 

3. Build your personal festival event itinerary by saving your favourite events. 

4. Get estimated walk and drive times and directions from your current location to all events. Also get routing to other useful sites, such as public transport points, hotels and restaurants.

5. Keep up to date with everything going on at IFB with in-app news and push notifications. We are using iBeacons to guide you around the events and give you relevant information based on your location.

6. The app includes your festival ID badge with a QR code for any time you forget your lanyard. This will get you in to events and on the IFB shuttle bus. 

7. Share messages, locations and images via the official IFB2014 social feed. 

8. Get live journey times for all stops for the IFB shuttle bus, as well as helpful links to Merseytravel, National Rail and Virgin Trains.

9. Find out who is near you with the ‘Around Me’ function, which lists nearby delegates.

10. Break the ice when meeting new people by using the QR scanner to scan delegate badges or our unique virtual handshake to connect. The virtual handshake works by shaking your devices together like a business handshake and sharing details seamlessly.

11. Take part in live polls and evaluations at events. Also complete festival questionnaires to win prizes.
