GHC 17 Mobile App

This year’s Grace Hopper Celebration will host close to 18,000 attendees, 700 speakers, and a giant career fair. This fun and inspiring gathering is a great chance to connect with women from around the world, but to get the most out of #GHC17, we strongly recommend you download the mobile app. The GHC venues are large, the crowds are brimming with excitement, and the whole experience can get overwhelming, so it helps to be prepared with all the details you’ll need, right on your smartphone.

Mobile App Content

The app includes important information about the celebration, and should be your go-to source for up-to-date resources. 

Must-see content includes…

  • Maps: Find your way around the Orange County Convention Center — it’s larger than multiple football fields! Venues will be packed full of technologists whisking off to their next presentation or panel. 
  • Sponsor profiles: Discover information about attending organizations and the opportunities they have available.
  • Social media: Be part of the conversation without opening multiple apps. Share your updates and photos directly in the GHC 17 app or share them to your Twitter account with one click.
  • Resources: Find general information about Wi-Fi, exhibitor resources, and much more.
