Deploying the EventPilot Conference App in an onsite kiosk is an excellent way to enhance attendee experience at your event. This is accomplished via the LITE add-on version, which offers a streamlined, no-login interface that's perfect for quick access to essential event information. This guide outlines how to set up your app for display in an onsite kiosk, ensuring attendees have immediate access to sessions, speakers, exhibitors, and maps.

EventPilot LITE Project Setup

A LITE version of your project is designed for ease of use and rapid deployment, particularly suitable for kiosk setups and also as a marketing tool on your website if you require login at startup. 

  1. No Login
    1. Users can access the content directly without needing to log in, making it ideal for kiosk use.
    2. Add to schedule, notes, bookmarking, and messaging features do not display.
  2. Customizable Content
    1. Focus on what's essential - sessions, speakers, exhibitors, and maps. This limitation ensures users get just the information they need.
    2. Limit content to in-app data without external links so kiosk users remain within the platform. 
  3. Home Screen Customization
    1. Tailor the home screen to your event's branding.
    2. Generate additional revenue by highlighting the kiosk sponsor on the home screen.

What is needed from you? 

Your Project Manager sets up the project for you and prepares it for public kiosk mode. You can then use the Conference App Builder to fine tune your project and further: 

  1. choose which Content to include/exclude
  2. design the Home Screen to highlight your kiosk sponsor


The LITE Kiosk version is available for all EventPilot Pro projects. Contact your project manager for pricing and to order. Order at least 3 weeks before the event and ensure time for your kiosk hardware provider to test. 

Your onsite kiosk vendor is required to complete testing with their unique kiosk setup. Browser for display must be based on the Chrome browser. Your kiosk vendor is responsible for controlling the browser set up (e.g. refresh after idle time, browser locking, etc.)
