Interactive CRS agenda application created in partnership with Country Aircheck now available for smartphone users

(Nashville, Tenn. – Feb. 23, 2011)  Country Radio Seminar 2011 is providing more social media options to its attendees this year and offering a new interactive agenda smartphone application, created in partnership with Country Aircheck.

The CRS 2011 application, or “app,” provides seminar attendees with an expanded CRS agenda, featuring panel descriptions, speaker bios, live performances, post-CRS nightlife activities and a map of downtown Nashville.  Users can create their own customized CRS schedule, rate the panels and post updates and reviews directly to their social media profiles.

“The new CRS app integrates all things CRS into your smartphone,” says CRB Executive Director Bill Mayne.  “I think our attendees will quickly appreciate all of the enhanced features this app offers, without having to carry around multiple schedules and agendas to find out where they want to go or how to get there.  It’s all right here in the palm of your hand.”

The CRS 2011 app is currently available for download on all iPhone and Android platforms, with a Blackberry version coming soon.  Download the Android application here and the iPhone app here.

“Last year, Country Aircheck partnered with the CRB to create the CRB-CA Awards, and this year, we're proud to work with the CRB in delivering CRS 2011 registrants the seminar's first ever smartphone app,” says Country Aircheck’s Lon Helton.  “Every session, every panelist, and every after-hours event is included, so everyone can customize their week to maximize their CRS 2011 experience.  It's cool, it's easy - and it's on your phone!”

CRS 2011 is also upgrading its on-site social media initiatives.  Throughout the three-day seminar, CRB will post Facebook and Twitter updates from the Convention Center about panel highlights, artist performances, special guests and more.  Ongoing video blogs from CRS 2011 will be posted at CRB.org.

CRS 2011 is held March 2-4, 2011, in downtown Nashville, Tenn.  For more information, visit www.CRB.org.
