Norwalk, CT – January 6, 2014
ICR, a leading strategic communications firm, today announced the launch of its new and improved ICR XChange mobile application, designed to enhance the experience of attendees at the 16th Annual ICR XChange conference taking place January 13–15 at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes in Orlando, Florida. This is the third year XChange attendees will have access to key conference resources and features via their mobile devices.
Enhancements to this year’s app include a live interactive map to navigate the conference space, with a self-location based route finding facility and full offline capability.
