This app is aimed for all of you technology professionals and entrepreneurs who attend numerous events, conferences and business/networking meetups. As you all know, finding the person that is relevant to you in the crowd is like looking for a needle in a haystack. This dissonance is exactly what Bizzabo means to cure. Its an innovative product that targets both event organizers and attendees. The attendees use Bizzabo to discover and engage with new business partners, while the event organizers benefit from improved communication with attendees, analytical tools and a revenue stream.
The first goal of Bizzabo was to to create the ideal mobile networking application that will help attendees create meaningful business opportunities at events. As a user you can see in your Bizzabo the upcoming events and confirm your participation, this way you can get the general picture of who is going to attend them. Once you’re actually at the event, you ‘check in’. Now you can see all the people as they described themselves on the app or by their LinkedIn account, this way the app will show you the people that are near you and you will see their picture, their name, the company they work for and their line of work in it.
Aside from making the event more social, Bizzabo also enables event organizers to increase social interaction throughout the event, gives them analytical tools and a revenue stream. In the future, Bizzabo plans to offer additional capabilities for event organizers that will help them generate revenue, as well as premium features for attendees. All in all it seems to be a very productive tool for anyone who attends lots of event and for event organizers, the only question is how viral it will become among those who should become its users. If you think you might be one of them, you should definitely check it out and start networking more efficiently!
