Multimedia Platforms to Participate in the LGBT Business, Marketing and Technology Conference Series Throughout NYC

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2015) - Multimedia Platforms, Inc. (OTCQB: MMPW) ("MMP"), the only LGBTQ publicly traded media company, today announced that Chief Executive Officer, Bobby Blair, is scheduled to participate in the LGBT Business, Marketing and Technology conference series taking place on April 20th - 24th at various locations throughout New York City.

Building on the success of LGBT Marketing Conferences over the last 7 years, MMP partner, Pink Banana Media, is proud to announce the launch of an expanded conference schedule, bringing a broader scope of Marketing, Advertising and Technology, with the theme of Education and Networking: Bringing together the worlds of advertising, marketing, technology and business in the LGBTQ marketplace.

"Multimedia Platforms' mission is to give a strong and cohesive voice to the global LGBTQ community, both internally, providing news, information and connections within the community, and externally, delivering the community's messages and input to the rest of the world in a framework that cannot be overlooked," stated Bobby Blair, MMP CEO. "Technology is our best friend on this mission, allowing for the instantaneous delivery of communications to any part of the globe; we intend to harness its potential to create stronger relationships, more accountability, and streamline the flow of information," added Blair.

Pink Banana Media is heading up the development of the soon-to-be-launched MMP Social Media Network, bringing a complete suite of news, entertainment, travel, and messaging/photo/video sharing forums directly to members' mobile and connected devices. Prior to engaging Pink Banana Media, MMP's online traffic has increased over 400% in the first quarter of 2015, largely due to focus being brought by celebrity writers and spokespersons, strategic acquisitions and partnerships, and freshly designed web portals. The launch of the Social Media Network is intended to create an ever-increasing traffic flow to a complete suite of online services, giving the LGBTQ community a one-stop destination for online information and connections.

"Our Social Media technology, combined with MMP's news and entertainment networks, and public company resources, create a perfect partnership to maximize the potential of both companies," said Matt Skallerud, President of Pink Banana Media. "Advertisers, network members, and the mainstream media will benefit from the tremendous flow of information and the ability to quickly send their messages 'viral' throughout the connected world."

Billed as a "One-Day Gay MBA," the Conference offers both novices and experienced pros valuable insights and approaches into the LGBTQ marketplace. The Conference is dedicated to marketing, advertising and PR executives and agencies serving all industries, who want to successfully reach LGBT consumers, and initiate or update effective strategies.
