Agora is a mobile application that aims to connect live event-goers with safety protocol and information about the event’s safety measures and plans. We are targeting live events with many attendees because there is a need for more safety and group planning support. Through initial conversations with friends, family, and peers, we discovered that it is constantly challenging to coordinate schedules, determine meeting points, message group members, and find medical and safety protocols at live events. This app will improve the user experience of live events and benefit attendees and event holders.

Agora’s prototype will feature solutions such as planned activities, location sharing, emergency information and resource system, interactive maps, group meetup, chat, schedule sharing, event information, and meditation guides to solve user needs when attending live events. The scheduling screen will be used so attendees’ friends can see where and when they will be during music festivals. Users can plan meetups and notify their group when they get separated. The emergency information will house where the nearest exits are, an emergency siren, medical attention locations, a meditation guide to decrease stress, and an incident report form. An interactive map in the application will allow users always to see the event’s layout.
