The best way to build a relationship is by a face-to-face meeting, and the best way to start new relationships is get out and put yourself in a place where you meet new people and get exposed to new ideas.
The Business Calendar Network (BCN) Premium shows you a wealth of professional networking events happening around your area. Its search tools help you find exactly the right events for you.
Once you are at an event, you can use the app’s I’m Here feature to check into the event, see who else is there, and follow any online conversation about the event.
The Business Calendar Network Premium app is a new way to discover business, professional, tech, and biotech events happening in your area. It was designed specifically for entrepreneurs and professionals looking to develop their business, their career, or their network.
Use it to keep up with your local startup scene and meet and connect with potential investors, clients, employers, and colleagues. Lawyers, accountants, and sales reps will find this app a valuable tool for finding the best networking events.
The events are pulled from an ongoing feed of events from the web-based Business Calendar Network. Events can be found for locations all across the U.S. Users can add their own events if they want to share them with the community.
We are still building out the Business Calendar Network. If no events are found in your area, you can add some yourself, tell your friends to add some, or let us know where you are and what you want and we can add some. The best option is to have the organizations in your area join the Business Calendar Network. Let us know who to call.
Find the Events that Matter.
The Base page starts with business events and entrepreneurial events within 50 miles of your current location, using your phone’s built-in geolocation functions.
The Event Detail page shows you all you need to know about a particular event. You can see the event name, the presenting organization, the date and time, a description, a location, and (if available) contact information and web address. You can save an event for later recall, invite friends, save it to your phone’s calendar, say that you plan to attend, or go to the website for the event for more detail.
You can check into an event with the I’m Here button. This allows you to see Who’s Here at the event and it shows all the Twitter hashtags associated with the event and the conversations that are taking place online.
Meals highlights events that offer meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner, or cocktails. It shows events for the next five days.
Search allows you to find events by keyword, by date, by distance from either your current location or a particular ZIP code. The Advanced search enables you to find events dealing with specific topics: Management Processes, Core Operating Processes, Industry, Issue, Event Format, Target Audience, Company DNA, or Team Related.
