Adopts the Krowd networking app to maximize B2B connection opportunity
Innovative local digital startup Krowdthink and Plymouth and Devon Chamber of Commerce are partnering to make the networking opportunity at the Plymouth Business Show on Wednesday 17 June at Plymouth Pavilions, a fantastically enhanced digital experience for exhibitors and visitors.
The Krowd app is a new form of social network service for connecting people in places. It helps users discover more people with shared interests in a crowd and connect with them. In addition it provides a location-based instant-on chat forum, so exhibitors and delegates can engage in a digital discussion about what’s happening right here, right now, the mobile phone equivalent of a personal address system, except everyone can participate.
“Krowdthink sees location as the untapped element of online social networking. To unlock that potential we have developed co-location technology so that users can engage locally without disclosing location.” said Geoff Revill, one of the Founders of Krowdthink Ltd. “We seek to enable private digital conversations in localities in a trustworthy social networking service. We very much appreciate Plymouth Business Show’s support and promotion of our Krowd app and their belief in our new online engagement model.”
“The Krowd is a wonderful new way to enhance business networking at events.” Said Suzi Cumberland, Events Manager, Plymouth and Devon Chamber of Commerce. “We are always seeking ways to add innovative digital value for our exhibition visitors and we are proud to support local startups such as Krowdthink. Now in its third year the business show has grown year on year and I’m looking forward to welcoming visitors to the show on the 17 June for lots of on and off-line networking. The show is free to attend so if you haven’t pre-registered please visit www.plymouth-chamber.co.uk/plymouthbusinessshow”
Every exhibitor and delegate to the event can download the Krowd app for free on Apple or Android smartphones. The app will auto-connect everyone at the Plymouth Business Show into a local Krowd, so if you can see someone in the Krowd, you know they are at the event.
