CyberMaryland APP

CyberMaryland will use Whova as the Official Event App this year. The CyberMaryland app is now live and can be accessed by downloading the Whova App.

Whova has been used in thousands of events and is loved by attendees as you can browse the event agenda, network with other attendees, and scan & exchange business cards all digitally via your mobile phone.

Watch the video or explore the written guide below.

We encourage all conference participants to download and use the conference app. In effort to be more environmentally friendly we will be reducing the amount of printed material that will be handed out at the event. The app will be your number one source for event updates including an up to date agenda, session abstracts, speaker bios, on-site announcements/updates and so on. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with other conference participants.

  • Open up the Apple Store or Google Play on your mobile device, and search for “Whova”.
