Presdo Commercially Launches Presdo Match at LeWeb

Presdo Unveils Presdo Match, an Event Social Networking Application That Seamlessly Helps Attendees Meet and Network With Other Attendees at LeWeb 2010

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - Presdo has commercially launched Presdo Match at LeWeb 2010, the #1 European Internet Event happening on December 8-9th in Paris. Presdo Match enables event attendees and exhibitors to network with the most relevant people at LeWeb 2010.

"As the premier European event for the meeting of Internet leaders, our attendees have been asking us to better facilitate networking at our event. We felt it was appropriate to showcase the next generation of event networking applications," says Geraldine LeMeur, LeWeb 2010 organizer. "We were impressed by the simplicity of Presdo Match. It is the first event networking application we could see ourselves using." With an estimated 2,000 attendees at this year's conference from more than 60 countries, LeMeur expect several hundred key meetings to be made through Presdo Match.

Presdo Match creates a social network of profiles for all event attendees, providing detailed views of who's coming and giving attendees recommendations of people with whom to network. Attendees can reach the most relevant people and schedule one-on-one appointments. With web and mobile versions of the application, networking can happen before and during the event.

By being integrated with LeWeb 2010's registration system, provided by amiando, Presdo Match hosts networking for all of LeWeb 2010's attendees. "With this combination, we are excited that we helped enable this event social networking application at LeWeb. Other amiando customers will now be able to easily take advantage of both products," said Felix Haas, CEO of amiando, a leading global online event registration and ticketing platform used by over 100,000 events.

Event organizers are most excited about Presdo Match because it increases both attendance and sponsorship opportunities. The application has "Social Invites", which lets attendees invite others they know to the event. Sponsorship placements can be embedded in the application, which has doubled the web traffic and exposure that sponsors have received.

The event social networking application was conceived and created by a team originally from LinkedIn, who realized that a solution did not exist to facilitate face-to-face interactions out of existing social networks. Presdo founder and LinkedIn co-founder Eric Ly adds, "We built Presdo Match so that people could create valuable business relationships at events. Presdo Match is so easy to use that it has never been easier to find and connect with the right people."
