The Best Holiday Shopping Apps for Busy Trade Show Managers

Ready or not, the official holiday gift-buying season kicks off this Friday. If only your event schedule would slow down enough to give you the time to actually do the shopping!

Not to worry, MSM’s ExperiDigital® team of event technology experts have compiled their favorite apps to help even the busiest event managers slay their gift list this season.

Whether you’re working from the road, or in the midst of planning your next event, you can tackle your shopping list like the event professional you are with these apps.

  • Giftry Giftry is the ultimate gift registry. You can invite your circle of friends and family to use the app and each add your own wishes from any store instantly. This app makes for a lot less second guessing of your gift selections.

  • The Christmas List If you want to approach gift-giving with the same level of mastery you bring to event planning, this app is for you. You can organize and track gifts by purchased, shipped, received and wrapped, store photos of gifts and even add people directly from your contact list.

  • Amazon You already love Amazon, but with this app you’ll love it even more. Not only do you get instant access to millions of items, the app’s Wishlist feature helps you keep track of everything. You can even search with your voice or—can you believe it?—your camera.
