Meeting Planner wants new MingleStick technology to help do the talking
June 9th, 2009
Frederick, MD. – June 9 – Liz Lomicka heads-up meetings and conferences for a busy Frederick County business networking group. The club is expanding into Montgomery County. Creative Benefit Concepts is Lomicka’s financial company and she is a registered investment advisory doing business in Maryland, DC and Virginia. Lomicka also has her own networking group called the private Business Resource Network.
Lomicka and her other networkers needed a new way to save contact information without the formality of a business card exchange. She turned to Mingle360, a Virginia-based provider of the “MingleStick” contact management and lead capture device.
“With cards, you have to write something on the back,” she said. “So you can remember the person, the context of the conversation. “With Mingle360, I have a picture, background on the person, and can automatically remember and get back in touch to do business.”
“The MingleStick is a real icebreaker,” said Lomicka. “Sometimes you feel slightly awkward at these events. This tool and the tech platform give us all something to talk about – and we have connected with the click of a button.”
The business network will host its next event in Frederick on June 23. Their group is the first to use the MingleStick in Montgomery County at this venue. “People are very excited for this event because they want to try out our new technology and we are already getting more responses to attend.”
Dan Coffing, CEO of Mingle360, added: “Working with Liz and her club has helped us see the value of local networking groups. Really, much of lead generation and making relationships happens when people meet and mingle. We look forward to working with many businesses in Maryland.”
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. For more information, please contact Mingle360 at 703-425-0402, or by clicking here.
