Bizzabo What's the best way to meet new people at conferences? Bizzabo is an alternative to the random meet-and-greet. This nicely designed smartphone app (iOS and Android) displays real-time event information and allows you to search for attendees (e.g., CTOs) you want to meet. Bizzabo's algorithm also recommends the best contacts for you, based on your business profile. It culls info from your social media accounts, including LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook.
The catch is that your fellow attendees and event organizers must use Bizzabo, too, otherwise you'll be networking alone. Things are promising on that front, as more than 3,000 conferences worldwide use Bizzabo, the company claims. The app is free for end-users. Event organizers can use a limited free version for smaller events (up to 350 attendees), or pay $499 to $1,299 for larger conferences. Bizzabo isn't the only player in town, however. Competitors include Tickmeet and OleaPark.
