“Our signature conference series uses Yapp for company information, layout, and general at-event communication.”
Uncubed connects people to exciting companies through content, conferences, community events, and education. Its signature events are hosted in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York City throughout the year to connect job hunters with local companies.
In planning multiple conferences for both company recruiters and attendees, it's difficult to provide the necessary information to each person in a timely and non-disruptive manner without having to juggle with email lists, printed materials, and using more restrictive and expensive custom apps.

The Uncubed team decided that a centralized hub of information that can send updates instantly and from anywhere beat emails and printing (by a lot). After using other app-creation solutions that required heavy lead time for any updates and didn’t offer push notifications, they switched to Yapp. The informative and affordable conference apps they created on Yapp's easy-to-use platform was the perfect mobile app solution for Uncubed.
“The other solutions needed significantly more lead time to publish the app and were costly.... Yapp really helps out by being so quick to update and easy to use."
Uncubed found that creating and editing their conference app became a breeze, and is now something they can do much closer to the event. With some help from Yapp’s support team, their conference apps are ready in less than an hour rather than weeks before.
Since switching to Yapp, Uncubed has saved more than $100,000. Annually, it spends about $10,000 less per event than in previous years when the team was printing, emailing, and designing custom apps for six to eight events.
Sending push notifications to alert everyone of changes, updates, and deadlines has increased user engagement. Attendees are more knowledgeable about when and where things are going on, and the staff can connect with them directly. “They're happy that we include the map and company information in their hand. We also get a good crowd response when using push notifications for upcoming stage activities.”
After exploring many options and even trying out a few solutions, Uncubed found Yapp to be the best conference app provider for their conferences of varying sizes across America to get attendees the information they need at their fingertips, without needing any lead time for app creation and with more than $100,000 in cost savings.
“Yapp is a total package: it’s easy, beautiful, and cost-effective.”
