ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - July 27, 2015) - Lanyon, the leader in corporate meetings, events, and travel software, today announced the Summer Release of the Smart Events Cloud® at the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) conference in Orlando (booth #1709). The release is designed to make the planning and execution of meetings and events even easier with a primary focus on a newly designed interface and navigation, and a completely new attendee management module.

The summer release of the Lanyon Smart Events Cloud includes the following:

A new, intuitive global navigation and user interface: Navigation is now based on the event life cycle, which simplifies the entire meeting and event process into logically ordered key components, and is designed to increase user efficiency, and adoption.

Completely redesigned attendee management module for meetings and events: Lanyon has made it easier than ever to plan, design and manage the entire process from website, to theme builder through to registration and reporting.

Configurable event themes: Event and meeting planners can now choose from an existing library of themes or edit a template to create a new, customized theme for their next event. The theme designer feature also automatically previews designs on desktops, tablets and mobile devices -- in order to see exactly what registrants will see.

Mobile integration: With the increased usage of mobile devices by attendees, integrated into the Smart Events Cloud is Lanyon's new secure and easy-to-use mobile application, Lanyon Mobile (formerly GenieConnect). The app improves the attendee experience before, during, and after the meeting or event, and helps deepen engagement between organizer and attendees.
