Startup Monday is ABCey’s weekly post that features some of the best and brightest companies in the Bay Area. They are often companies that we have our eye on or have worked with in the past & would like to share with friends and followers of ABCey Events.
The great thing about attending events is the ability to meet all kinds of people. However, sometimes networking isn’t always the easiest thing to do. Some have the ability to dive right in and come out with five new clients and a new gym buddy. For the rest of us, we end up with some awkward and monotonous small talk! Luckily, one of San Francisco’s newest start ups, Attendify may be able to help with that.
Attendify is the newest private social network for event planners and attendees. Users can create their own profiles and then manage their accounts. This app is also great because people can express their personal objectives, which makes it easier to connect with other people with similar goals. It can also be used to replace printed brochures at events, because it allows the user to upload schedules, speaker times, and maps!
A big bonus of Attendify is the way it combines social media tools and a management control panel. Users are able to see a live timeline, just like on Twitter, where people can post their status and pictures. They can also message one another to keep a conversation going. Event planners can monitor these messages by moderating the content and sending push notifications. If you want to learn more about Attendify, be sure to check out their video!
