Mind Camp Sponsor: Pathable

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sponsors, Upcoming

Pathable has given us access to their conference (and unconference) attendee planning tool, which we are going to be using to match people with others who share common interests, print badges, plan sessions, and more.

Pathable (http://www.pathable.com/) is an easy-to-use, private on-line community / directory for events. Attendees and sponsors create short profiles, then use the system to meet other attendees and to start conversations with them, pre-networking before the conference begins. For attendees, it’s a great way to make sure you make the kind of valuable connections you go to these types of events for, and for event hosts, it’s an essential part of making sure your attendees and sponsors get the value they need out of your event.

Seriously, this is some really good stuff. Check out a video introduction of how it all works, after the break.
