TARGETED NETWORKING ALLOWS ATTENDEES TO SETUP ONE-ON-ONE MEETINGS
ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (November 13, 2008) – EventRebels, an Internet software provider for meeting and event planners, successfully introduced BioMatch for the 2008 Mid-Atlantic Bio conference. Based on the EventRebels ERMatch targeted networking platform, BioMatch allowed attendees to arrive at Mid-Atlantic Bio having meetings already set up ahead of time with targeted individuals from other organizations. The tool made it easier to turn business contacts into business relationships by connecting attendees one on one with bioscience industry leaders. Almost a hundred appointments were made during the conference using the tool.
“Attendees are always looking for a way to maximize their investment in a conference,” said K. C. Hopson, CEO of EventRebels. “There are few ways better to deliver additional value than arranging one-on-one meetings with other targeted attendees.” In BioMatch, targeting is based on searches of attendees based on industry category information that is part of the registration profile. If the profile is of interest, the attendee can request an appointment with the other attendee with a specified time and location.
“One of the key reasons companies attended 2008 Mid-Atlantic Bio is to connect with prospective business partners,” said Mark A. Herzog, executive director of Virginia Biotechnology Association, one of the conference host associations. “BioMatch facilitates these connections in the most targeted and efficient manner possible, bringing about the collaboration that is essential during these challenging times,” he added.
Designed specifically for the life sciences and biotech industries, the online BioMatch system will also enabled attendees to:
* Profile their company, products and technologies, and desired types of collaborations
* Research and review profiles of other registered companies
* Communicate with other registered companies using an integral messaging system
* Produce a personalized agenda of meetings and conference activities
