Business Success from RISEConf

Expanding MeetVibe’s Footprint in the APAC and EMEA Regions

In July, global entrepreneurs, investors and innovators gathered in Hong Kong for Asia’s largest tech conference – RISE.

Our goals were to launch the business portal and gain a sense of the marketability for entrance into the Asian market. Many people have asked if it was worth it to travel to Asia for the launch of a predominantly North American product and our response is, “Yes, it was definitely worth attending.” The regional business atmosphere was very eager to try new things, receptive and enthusiastic.

MeetVibe had the opportunity to showcase our product with a booth and took the stage for an investor pitch. We are pleased to say that, as one of the conference’s Alpha start-ups, our push into Asia is taking root. Through introductions facilitated at RISE, MeetVibe has secured, and continues to build, valuable regional business relationships.

KW Group are global leaders in exhibitions, conferences & services to connect, promote and facilitate international trade & economic development. MeetVibe will be the networking partner at the upcoming Global Trade Development Week Major Edition to be held in Dubai from October 30th to November 1st. More than 1,500 business leaders will join the largest cross-border business facilitation event of 2017. True to our mission to connect the right people at the right time, we look forward to making networking more effective during the 3-day conference and exhibition.

We are also excited to announce our partnership with Delegate, Asia’s best marketing platform for event management companies. They are a free-to-use online platform that allows event managers to discover, compare and hire the best event vendors, within minutes. If you are looking to increase your event’s networking value, you can now include MeetVibe’s proximity marketing services directly through the Delegate platform »

Reaching the Cloud: Migration to IBM Bluemix Platform Complete

In January, we announced that MeetVibe is migrating to a modern, cloud infrastructure. Our incredible technical team moved quickly. Just one month after the decision, we began moving data to the IBM Bluemix Cloud Computing Platform.

Today, we are excited to announce that MeetVibe has successfully migrated our service to the cloud, with minimal impact on our members. Because this migration took place in the background, members did not noticed any changes to the day-to-day experience while using the MeetVibe app. However, engineers understand the technical complexities involved with moving large amounts of live data into the cloud quickly and safely. MeetVibe’s migration to the cloud was an important milestone.

What We Did

At first glance, MeetVibe’s new home in the cloud may not look all that different. But to borrow from the analogy of moving to a new house: it is built on a much stronger foundation, sits on a larger lot, comes with new plumbing, and even has an upgraded alarm system. Overall, it is a much better place to live.

This move to the IBM Bluemix Cloud platform brings about more noticeable benefits now and for the future, such as increased uptime, security improvements, and faster delivery of new and innovative features.

A Faster, More Reliable Backend

MeetVibe is a modern way of networking often used during conferences and social events. As such, we need to provide reliable services to handle nonlinear traffic patterns, with significant spikes during live events.

What’s Next?

Now that we have reached the cloud, stay tuned for more news as we add new smart features, tap into new mobile services, layer in more IoT features and may even include Watson.

Many thanks to Teresa of IBM Canada, Lee and Eric of IBM U.S., and Ernest of IBM Singapore for making us feel welcome into the IBM Global Entrepreneur Program!
