Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
Bizzabo has officially launched today its iPhone and Android apps for event goers and a new self-service web interface for event organizers. From today forward, any event organizer anywhere in the world can easily add an event and enjoy special networking features on the Bizzabo platform. In addition to its new apps, Bizzabo has been chosen to be the official app for top-end international conferences: the prestigious MLOVE ConFestival in Berlin, which has been referred to as the "TED of mobile", the famous NOAH Internet Conference in San Francisco and the leading telecom conference Uplinq™ by the telecom giant Qualcomm. Bizzabo is poised to take business event networking to a whole new level; Bizzabo is now open to anyone, anywhere.
Anyone who frequents business events knows this problem: How do I navigate this sea of people in order to find meaningful networking opportunities? The amount of time it takes to weed through all of the attendees for meaningful contacts is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
With 10,000,000 worldwide events in 2011 alone, there is a desperate need to maximize the potential benefits of a networking event, while minimizing the wasted time and effort spent trying to meet the right people without having any background information.
Bizzabo offers a simple and free solution; it enables you to discover interesting people attending and connects you with the right contacts for you. The app cross references your LinkedIn profile with other event attendees and identifies who will be the most beneficial contact for you; it truly socializes the event experience.
Currently, organizers often make independent white-label apps for each event, but that means attendees have to download a new app for every event they go to, leaving their phone cluttered with outdated apps. Bizzabo aims to be the standard networking app for all business events. Event goers use Bizzabo to discover relevant events, discover people at those events and most importantly – build strong and beneficial relationships.
Bizzabo benefits organizers as well, they are able to communicate in real-time with all attendees at once, allowing them to send real time announcements and keep track of the social buzz. Bizzabo offers additional features, including the ability of event organizers to enter the agenda and speaker profiles of their event. Bizzabo "Offers" (available in the iPhone version) allows exhibitors or sponsors to create Groupon type offers and generate business leads. Additionally, according to the founders, advanced event analytics and polling features will be released in the near future.
During its private beta period, Bizzabo boasted impressive statistics, such as creating roughly 700 new LinkedIn connections and Twitter followers for every 1000 attendees and has already enabled over 50K social interactions between event attendees at hundreds of events! With the launch of its web interface, any event organizer, anywhere in the world can add his or her event to Bizzabo's app and offer event attendees a powerful networking tool to maximize their attendance, before or during the event.
Unlike apps that are used for location-based social discovery, Bizzabo is solely focused on events, enabling you to share, network and connect where you really need it the most, aiming to be the standard networking app for events.
Bizzabo is currently focused on growing its user base of organizers and attendees and plans to monetize by offering premium features and help organizers generate more revenues out of its platform.
