I just typed in the address exactly as I had typed it in my message and it
came up just fine. Make sure NFB is lower case and you only put 20 and not
2020.

Yes the website is:
event.CrowdCompass.com/nfb20

Event password: nfb2020

keeping in mind in the computer link it is just 20 and not 2020

I guess the contacts downloaded from the convention app are viewed as
a separate group in the contacts on your phone. There is probably a
setting in your phone to migrate them over to your regular contact
list. As far as the exhibitors contact info there really doesn't seem
to be a way to save them like that of individuals. Some exhibitors
have downloadable pdf's at the bottom of their contact info but I do
not know what those contain. If you were on your computer using the
website you could cut and paste the contact info easily to a document
but on the phone it is more cumbersome. It's a shame that feature was
not implemented.

manually add them! Thanks, Heather

I'm going to list the steps I took and see if it's the info you're
looking for, if not let me know: I went to the attendee list, found a
friend and clicked on their name. I then clicked on add them as a
contact. I believe the friend then has to go into the menu on the main
page where you look at your notifications but their is also a button
that says contacts. Once they go into contacts they will see all
people who have requested them as contacts and they have to confirm
them. In this same Contact list there is an export button at the top.
once you select it, you can then click on some or all of the names to
export to your phone's contact list. This is all I did but I believe
the key here is that the person has to confirm your request before
their info can be downloaded off the app. Hope this helps.

I'm not sure how often the attendee list is updated on the app. For
instance, if the list is updated hourly or daily, maybe your friend
was not in the list right away. Also, the list is by last name but if
your friend accidentally put their last name first or mistyped it
then
it will be hard to find. I found yours and my name easily. If you
want, I can help look for your friend's name in the attendee list.
The
section index on the right side of the iPhone screen makes it
somewhat
quicker to scroll through.

great!

I just tried and I cannot get them to delete either, somewhat
annoying.

In the app, below the Agenda and Sponsors you will find the
Exhibitors
button. That will take you to an alphabetical list of the
exhibitors.
Was that what you were asking?

I've played around with it so if you have a specific question
maybe
I
can help. When you first download it, you type in nfb2020 in
the
search (keeping in mind it is lower case and all one word)
then
in
the
event ID you type nfb2020 in again. It will ask you to enter
the
info
you registered for the convention with (I don't remember if
you
can
look at it without at least entering some info) then it will
take
you
to your profile screen. You can enter as much or as little as
you
want
others to see (or none at all). The info for the convention is
very
accessible. When you are in the schedule of events, if you
double
tap
on an event you are interested in, it has a Zoom link to that
event,

a
description of it and you can set a reminder for that event
and
even
add it to a schedule of things you want to attend. Like I said
it
is
one of the most accessible event apps I've come across.

You can also use the website for the event :
event.CrowdCompass.com/nfb20
Event password: nfb2020
