2016 MLive Conference App

Rick Snyder MPC 2016

Keep all the action of the 2016 Mackinac Policy Conference at your fingertips with the MLive Conference App. After registering for the Conference, you can download the app from the Apple Store (for iPhone and iPad) or Google Play (for Android devices) by opening this link in your phone. Windows phone users can also access the app via the mobile website. Follow the steps below to download the app or you can access the mobile site here.

  1. Search “Mackinac 2016” in the app store
  2. Download the free Conference app
  3. Log in with your email address (if you have multiple email addresses, please use the one that receives Chamber emails)

If you receive a login error, it is likely because the app has not yet recognized your registration or email address. Within 24 hours of registering for the Conference, your registration will be logged and you will be able to experience the app in its entirety. If you still have login issues after that, please email Web and Multimedia Manager Nick Mattar at nmattar@detroitchamber.com. You can also fill out the app help form on the sidebar.

Thank you to MLive Media Group for sponsoring the 2016 app!

Frequently Asked Questions

The app does not recognize my email address and I cannot get into the app. What should I do?

Only registered attendees can log in to the app. If you have not registered for the Conference, you will see an error message that says your username or password is incorrect. If you have registered for the Conference and are still not able to log in to the app, email Nick Mattar at nmattar@detroitchamber.com. Please provide your name, title, company and the email address associated with your registration.

Spouses do not have email addresses associated with their registrations and will need to request access via email or at the App Help Desk during the Conference.

What is my password?

The password for all users is Mackinac and should only need to be entered when opening the app for the first time. Login instructions, including the password, are provided on the login screen.

Should I enable Push Notifications?

Yes. Push notifications keep you up-to-date on all Conference news and exclusive offers for app users.

If you are on an Apple device, you will be asked to allow or deny push notifications when you first open your app. Be sure to select ALLOW. If you accidentally select “Do Not Allow,” you can enable push notifications in your device’s Notification Center, which is located in the main settings page. If you are on an Android device, go to your phone’s settings and select application settings. From there, select the Mackinac Policy Conference app and check “show notifications.”

I can’t see any tweets when I access the Twitter page. How do I access the #MPC16 hashtag or @detroitchamber tweets?

To see any tweets in the app, you must have a public Twitter account active on your mobile device. To create a Twitter handle, visit www.twitter.com and download the official app. You can connect your Twitter app to your Mackinac Policy Conference app in your device’s settings.

Private Twitter accounts will not display tweets in the app.

Why are my spouse’s organization and title not listed on the app attendee list?

Individuals attending the Conference at the reduced spouse rate will not have their organization or title listed on the app’s attendee list. Spouses can request a login to the app by emailing Nick Mattar at nmattar@detroitchamber.com.

How do I edit my information?

From the main menu, navigate to My Profile at the bottom of the menu. You will then see a section to edit your name, title, company and even add a headshot. You can also turn your in-app messaging on or off from this screen.

How do I add agenda items to my device’s calendar? How do I remove items from My Agenda?

To add an agenda item to your device’s calendar, select the item from the agenda and select the Favorite button at the bottom. If you accidentally added too many items to My Agenda, you can remove an item by pressing the button again.
