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.

MeetVibe Round Up – July 2017 – RISEConf

The Largest and Most Exciting Tech Conference in Asia

MeetVibe participated as an Alpha Start-up at the RISE Conference, held on July 11-13 in Hong Kong, launching our Business offering. RISE is labeled by Forbes a “truly world class” event, attracting 580 startups, 400 investors, 565 journalists and 240 speakers.

Why Hong Kong? As a young SaaS IoT company, with an established presence in Toronto, Zurich and Silicon Valley, it is important to understand why Hong Kong is targeting to become the IoT capital of the world.

ALPHA Startup MeetVibe Launches at RISE Conference

TORONTO / HONG KONG — June 29, 2017.

MeetVibe Connects the Right People at the Right Time!

In a world that is more social, more mobile, and more instant than ever before, what interests people? Other people. We believe technology and social connectivity should be seamless so that people can focus on real interactions. Our Internet of Things (IoT) social engagement platform seamlessly connects digital channels with the physical environment, offering access to what matters most: people, places, relationships, and meaningful connections.

MeetVibe is an ALPHA Startup launching at RISE, the biggest tech conference of its kind in Asia, held on July 11-13 in Hong Kong. Enabling participants to take networking to the next level, we connect people, ideas, and contextual information on the ground, in the moment.

The Social Internet of Things
MeetVibe’s SaaS platform brings people together to build meaningful relationships. The mobile app is location aware, using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beaconing and proximity technologies to augment spontaneous social opportunities.

We enable community leaders and businesses to deliver contextual information and engaging content such as agendas, coupons, or maps directly to mobile phones – as customers or participants come within proximity of a specific location – providing the information they want at the moment they need it.

By staging several beacons throughout a location, powerful analytics such as traffic patterns, heat mapping, and visitors’ behavior can be gathered using our proximity business content management system.

Free App: Discover – Connect – Schedule

  • The Around Me feature allows you to discover others who are nearby.
  • Profile sharing facilitates introductions to easily connect and exchange social profiles and contact information.
  • Simplified scheduling offers calendar-sharing availability, sends automated arrival messages, and provides directions to meeting locations.

About MeetVibe
We love creating synergies. MeetVibe is a mobile and Internet of Things SaaS company founded mid-2015, with key representatives located in the San Francisco Bay Area, Toronto and Zurich. Our purpose is to make people’s lives easier through technology. Each of us brings unique perspectives and expertise to connect the right people at the right time.

We are proud to have IBM as our biggest investor and technology partner, and to be part of Facebook’s global mobile startup program.

During early tests, our iOS and Android mobile apps have been used more than 6,200 times, and enabled 2,600 proximity interactions.
