MingleSticks: How It Works
Attendees are provided a MingleStick upon registration at the event. Two MingleStick users simply press the button on their device to create a connection between each other. Hundreds of connections can quickly and easily be made. At the end of a tradeshow, the connections are uploaded to the Mingle360 website. Users login to their online address book to view the connections they made at the event. Pictures are displayed along with business card information. The MingleStick represents ‘electronic business card’ technology for attendees and a networking solution for tradeshows, conventions and conferences.
“The MingleSticks distributed at our annual Marketplace created a valuable experience for our attendees” says Peter Pantuso, President of the American Bus Association. “The small, easy-to-carry device facilitated business networking with its simple, one-click button. The MingleStick created a differentiated experience for our attendees and allowed buyers and sellers to business in a green environment, by reducing paper and creating an electronic list of contacts, making follow up with one another a breeze.”
The MingleStick technology can be deployed at tradeshows and conventions ranging from 1,000 to 100,000+ attendees. Event organizers create a new and exciting experience for their attendees. Companies can sponsor the MingleStick technology and receive branding exposure that reaches all attendees.
