London, UK (PRWEB UK) 12 April 2013
"Companies often spend vast amounts of time and money sending speakers to and sponsoring professional events," said Simon Willison, CEO of Lanyrd, "But this work can be wasted if it's not coordinated or promoted. We're already the best place to have these events seen and discovered by the public, but now we provide new ways for companies to stand out and organize their efforts."
A new suite of functionality helps managers keep track of their teams - giving marketing strategists an automatically updating calendar of every event their speakers are attending or have attended in the past. Slides and videos from the talks can be kept in a central place, and private notes allow speakers or managers to provide feedback on events while private labels can be used to manage sponsorship deal-flow.
And to help show off the work that speakers do, teams can quickly build a branded event portal - highlighting the company's speakers, events, slides and videos. They get increased brand exposure across Lanyrd's event listings, session pages, speaker profiles and mobile apps, too.
Lanyrd's launch customers include Facebook, GitHub and Heroku - companies that spend a large portion of their marketing budget on sponsoring events and sending employees to speak at conferences. Lanyrd Pro helps them get the most for their money.
Kami Richey, Community Manager at GitHub, said, "At GitHub, conferences are a huge part of what we do. We're constantly sponsoring and speaking at them, from the small, regional ones to the bigger events. Lanyrd Pro not only lets us track of our sponsorship deals, but also where we're speaking. It's helping us save time while allowing us to support more awesome events."
Louis Rosenfeld, Publisher at Rosenfeld Media, said, "We work with 55 user-experience experts and they all have busy speaking schedules. Lanyrd Pro helps us keep track of what every one is doing without having to bug people for updates."
Delyn Simons, VP of Developer Platform at Mashery said, "Mashery sponsors and attends over sixty hack events each year. Our goal is to help people create apps and innovate using all the latest and greatest APIs across healthcare, retail and media. Lanyrd Pro helps us communicate with our incredible community of over 200,000 developers."
Lanyrd Pro starts at just $99 a month with a 10% discount if purchased annually. Pricing varies with the size of the team.
