Conferize Announces New Funding And Is Honored By Red Herring

AMSTERDAM, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Conferize, the online platform for conferences and attendees, announces new funding and is honored as a leading technology company at this week's Red Herring Europe event.

The industry of conferences and professional meetings is a trillion dollar global market. Before Conferize most conferences existed largely offline and unavailable to non-attendees. Conferize now connects conferences more directly with the Internet to make information and networking available to online users. This gives the busy professional unprecedented access to the latest knowledge from thought leaders in any industry.

Today most conference organizers struggle with declining tickets sales. Conferize is dedicated to helping organizers market and sell their events to a wider and more targeted audience. This trend is aligned with the travel and hotel industries that have been streamlined and made more transparent with greater costumer satisfaction in return.

Today Conferize also announces another seed round closing from existing investors, bringing the investment total above $ 1 million.

CEO and Founder Martin Ferro-Thomsen says: "Earlier this year we saw a significant rise in user growth along with increased sales despite still being early stage. We've since doubled the team with developers and senior sales people preparing for beta launch in the coming months. This release will make Conferize much more engaging, relevant and visually appealing to users. By attracting larger audiences with a unique conference experience online we also increase the value for conference organizers looking to market in new ways".

Conferize is founded by former Issuu Co-Founder Martin Ferro-Thomsen. In 2011 Conferize was introduced prelaunch at the prestigious technology launch pad DEMO in Silicon Valley. Launched as alpha in 2012 it has quickly become a leading destination for close to 2 million professionals sharing almost 8 million conference updates. In 2012 Conferize won the continent's biggest venture competition European Venture Summit among 850 contestants. The company has been covered by top tier media such as The Next Web and VentureBeat, as well as by industry authorities BizBash and Event Manager Blog, who chose Conferize among Top Event Trends for 2013. The company is headquartered in Copenhagen with members of its team in Silicon Valley and London.

Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize Google, Skype, YouTube, eBay and many others. Today Conferize joins this esteemed group of innovative technology platforms.
