Washington DC - Mingle360 successfully executes its event networking solution for Social Matchbox. All attendees at the event received a MingleStick for peer-to-peer networking. Akin to an electronic business card, the MingleStick enables two people to connect with a simple click of a button. After the event, the connections are uploaded and viewable online.
"The MingleStick creates a fun, social environment for networking," says Dan Coffing, President and CEO of Mingle360. "Because the MingleStick can be handed to every attendee, the networking capability at an event is incredible. Social Matchbox was a great venue to showcase our technology and its usefulness."
"MingleSticks added a twist to the networking component of our quarterly event," says Robert Neelbauer, Founder and host of Social Matchbox. "Participants really liked the knowing that they could swap contact information with other participation on the day of the event and then make a visual connection after the event thanks to the photos taken and associated with participants by Mingle360’s team."
Offered as a service to event organizers, the Mingle360 solution greatly enhances attendee networking at the event, surpassing business cards with up to date contact information and even facial recognition. It creates 'buzz' and excitement at the event and helps differentiate the organization from the competition. Mingle360 is the easiest way to turns real-world conversations into online connections and to produce dramatically more valuable networking events.
