Yappn Launches Global Event and Broadcast Platform for Trade Shows, Meetings and Conferences

Platform offers event and virtual attendees real-time engagement tools in almost 70 languages to growing $10 Billion US market

NEW YORK, NEW YORK--(Marketwired - June 13, 2013) - Yappn Corp. (OTCBB:YPPN) ("Yappn or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its development platform, Yappn (www.yappn.com), an upcoming online multi-lingual social community where people can meet, chat, engage and consume media in almost 70 languages, set to fully launch in Summer 2013, has begun to initiate revenue agreements ahead of its beta launch. The Company has signed an agreement to offer private and public global discussion and broadcast services to the meeting, trade show, event planning and conference industry.

Yappn will allow event organizers to reach and service a global audience using the key features and tools provided through the Yappn platform. Organizers will have the ability to discern and disseminate public and private events, including live and pre-recorded video and have attendees both at an event and abroad engaged in social discussion, networking and business development. Yappn will become the "hub" for all related global engagement for the event's programming activities.

According to industry analysis by IBIS World and First Research the current US market alone for event planning, trade shows, meetings and conferences exceeds $10 Billion annually with moderate growth forecasted over the next few years.

On a global scale, the industry market value is significantly higher, however attendance for industry events has been affected by rising costs for travel and related expenses and changing business environments. In some cases, attendees are hampered by the ability to attend foreign conferences given communication issues.

Yappn provides a complete solution that increases value to onsite attendees and also engages a virtual audience, regardless of their geo-region or native language, allowing them to interact with the ongoing events and other attendees.

In the upcoming week, Yappn has been invited to speak to a group of over 300 industry professionals who plan over 8,000 events each year and is also engaged with trade ministries from global regions that are working to expand their local trade show marketing programs and attract global attendees.

On June 19, 2013 Yappn will make the industry presentation available at www.yappn.com
