STEAMLINE SHOW TIME: The Husker Harvest Days 2022 app allows you to find specific exhibitors or track down all the exhibitors that make a specific product. The screenshot shows different aspects of the app, including the show maps and My Show Planner.

It turns out 2022 marks the 15th anniversary for Apple’s iPhone, and while other companies were in the smartphone business at the time, this latest innovation pushed consumers to put these super computers in their pockets. Today, more farmers are running their farms from a smartphone, getting information and making decisions in new ways.

Putting your smartphone to work to help maximize your visit to Husker Harvest Days can save time.

Husker Harvest Days has long had an app to help you facilitate your visit to the show. The 2022 app is ready for you to download, or if you have automatic settings enabled on your device and you had the earlier version installed, you may already have updated. Just be sure the version you’re using is for 2022.

A key to the app is the Map Your Show platform, which includes the My Show Planner. You can register for My Show Planner on your phone — it’s free — to help you identify and store key exhibitors you don’t want to miss. That My Show Planner is live on the website, too. And if you use the same login credentials, you can plan your show in one place and have access to your account on desktop or app.

Power of planning

The My Show Planner tool allows you to search exhibitors by category as well as brand. Sure, you know the major brand for a specific product, but are there others? It’s easy to find in the app or on the site. But once you’ve logged those specific exhibitors in your planner account, the app is ready to travel to Grand Island.

And if you’re concerned about using the app on-site because of limited cellular bandwidth, no worries. The phone stores key information locally. That means if you’re in heavy cell traffic at the show — and it happens — the app will continue to work.
