As exhibitors or sponsors, are you trying to generate more leads at trade shows, expos, and conferences? If your event is using the Whova event app, you can use Whova’s Lead Generation and Retrieval solutions for free.

How to Sign In

Download the Whova Event app from the App Store (for iPhone) or Google Play (for Android), or visit here in a web browser on your mobile device.  After installing the app, open it and sign in.  

1) Sign-In options

Enter the email address you used for event registration, or use your social media account

2) Create password and type in your name.

3) Profile editing

Other attendees will see this and network with you, so make it look good.  You can edit it later by clicking the “More” tab.

4) Access your event main page

The app will take you to your event page automatically if organizers updated the app with your registration information.

If your event doesn’t show up automatically, search for it. Then, click the join button on the bottom of the event description page, and enter the event invitation code the organizers sent you. Or, request a new code and wait until the organizers approve your request.

LeadGen on the Whova Event App

1.  Collecting Lead Information

After you have reached the Event home page, click on the icon titled “LeadGen” in the top-left corner of the app. Then, either choose to collect leads by scanning an attendee’s QR code or by entering them manually.

  • Option 1: Scan QR codes

Choosing to scan QR codes will turn your phone’s camera into a QR code scanner so you can easily capture their information with your smartphone. You can scan QR codes on attendees’ name badges.

Or, ask attendees to show you the QR code on their Whova app and scan it. It can be found in the “More” tab in the bottom right corner of the app.
  • Option 2: Add Leads Manually

Choosing to record contacts manually will allow you to enter the lead’s information if their QR code is unavailable, as shown below:


2.  Lead Retrieval
After scanning name badges or adding lead information, your leads will be shown in the list as below.

3. Exporting

You can export your lead list into a spreadsheet at any time by clicking on the Export button. You can send the file to your email or share it with your colleague by putting his/her email.
