BlackBerry® Apps Now Available at MeetingApps.com
VANCOUVER, CANADA and LONDON, UK (October 5th, 2010) – MeetingApps.com is pleased to announce the inclusion of BlackBerry® apps onto the World’s First Portal for Meeting Apps. Global planners and hospitality partners can now immediately locate BlackBerry apps to help operate their meetings and conferences. The smartphone app directory also includes apps to help planners achieve their Corporate Social Responsibility Program (CSR) targets during the meeting planning process. New BlackBerry meeting apps will be continuously added to MeetingApps.com, keeping planners up to date with the latest developments.
Kirsten Strand of Invenia Incentives, the creator of MeetingApps.com, partnered with technology gurus Joseph Lo and Jane Huynh in the development of the new portal. "According to a recent IMEX survey, BlackBerry is currently the smartphone of choice in the global meetings industry. Of those planners surveyed by IMEX, 47% are using BlackBerries as opposed to 31% using iPhones and 24% using Nokia devices." Joseph Lo comments, "We understand that there is a demand for BlackBerry apps and we listened. The implementation of our BlackBerry app directory began shortly after the recent roll out of BlackBerry App World 2.0. Planners will be able to not only easily search for meeting apps, but will also be able to rate apps and read reviews and articles on app technology on our site."
