Singapore-based mobile professional social network Beepmo has announced a partnership with upcoming banking conference Next Bank Asia to bring its real-time, location-based professional networking service to the event held 9-10 May, 2012, making it the first event in Asia to incorporate mobile location-based social discovery and business networking.
Beepmo‘s mobile application can be thought of as a Foursquare for LinkedIn – during the period of the conference, Next Bank Asia attendees can use Beepmo to view event details, speaker lists, events schedules as well as utilize its social discovery features to check out the professional profiles of other nearby attendees nearby.
“We find attendees and sponsors demanding a fresh conference experience and more productive ways to network,” says Rob Findlay, founder of Next Bank Asia. “Beepmo is the perfect solution as it rides on LinkedIn, is easy to use and gives us exposure to a valuable demographic of professionals across the Beepmo network.”
“Beepmo was designed to help professionals expand their network and discover business opportunities around them,” says Simon Lower, co-founder of Beepmo. “Beepmo really comes alive at events and conferences and we’re thrilled to be partnering Next Bank Asia.”
Beepmo is currently available on iOS; Android and Blackberry versions are slated for release later this year.
