Leebug, a social networking website that provides free, custom event communities for conferences and professional events, has attracted a growing number of event producer partners to its platform.
Launched in September 2009, Leebug has focused recent development on integrating its platform with existing social media. Event communities are set up for free on the platform and event producers can take advantage of registration integration, a suite of customization tools and revenue sharing through sales of virtual booths. Leebug has added the ability for users to import their profile from LinkedIn, saving them the time of manually entering yet another online profile. Last week Leebug's new social media dashboard called The Hub was released. Feeds from Twitter, Flickr and YouTube stream into The Hub and give event participants a real-time visualization of the event.
Leebug Founder, Rob Arthurs, is excited to offer these new features to event producers. "Twitter, along with other social media, has become an indispensable tool for conferences," says Mr. Arthurs. "Smart phones equipped with a camera or video allow attendees to instantly share across sites like Flickr and YouTube. I'm thrilled to be bringing these feeds together within each Leebug event community." Event producers are discovering the platform and forming their own communities which range from private financial forums to large technology and insurance conferences. Angela Cai, Regional Marketing Executive for Argus Media says, "By integrating with Leebug we will enhance the Argus event experience even further. Delegates of our upcoming Asian Petroleum Coke conference will benefit from the platform's robust networking tools and virtual booths."
Leebug (http://www.leebug.com) is a free, interactive social networking site for people attending conferences. It allows event participants to network before, during and after an event. The platform provides tools to make every connection a strategic one and empowers interactions that will enhance the users ability to build relationships.
