If you run any large scale networking events or if you attend them, here’s the latest on a tool you want to use: Minglestick.
Mingle360 has added integration with Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to significantly enhance the utility of the MingleStick. Attendees ‘click to connect’ with their MingleSticks at trade shows, conventions, and social events. Upon returning home, the connections are uploaded and are viewed on Facebook, Twitter, and the company’s MingleManager website. Integration with top social networking websites exponentially increases a person’s networking potential. Event organizers build online community around their real-world events and realize viral marketing benefits.
“The MingleStick revolutionizes the events industry with its ‘click to connect’ technology, says Bradley Blinn, VP of marketing with Mingle360. “Imagine events ranging from 1,000 to 100,000+ attendees. The MingleStick is distributed to ALL attendees, thus allowing everyone the ability to connect with a simple click of a button. Attendees can return home with 200+ mingle connections and their social networking begins on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. This is an incredible experience for attendees and event organizers because the value of the event is extended online for weeks and months to come.”
The ubiquity of the MingleStick at an event turns the simple-to-use device into a powerful networking tool for everyone. Trade shows, conventions, business meetings, conferences, and consumer shows are focused on creating networking opportunities for their attendees. The MingleStick helps facilitate networking because the device is an excellent conversation starter / ice breaker and helps create a social environment for business professionals. The Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn integration enhances the value of the MingleStick because attendees can now view a person’s favorite social networking website(s) along with their profile picture and contact information on MingleManager.
