TRUMBA TO POWER ONLINE EVENT CALENDAR
FOR INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL SUMMIT
Trumba Connect Provides Unique Scheduling Application
for Tracking Sessions During Film Festival Summit
SEATTLE, WA, November 27, 2006 – Trumba Corporation, a developer of innovative event marketing technology, announced today that the International Film Festival Summit (IFFS) will be using Trumba Connect to power its online event calendar for its annual Summit. The Conference & Expo will be held December 3-5 in Las Vegas. Trumba Connect allows organizations to effectively publish and promote events online and create an interactive, two-way communications vehicle between themselves and their customers.
Using Trumba Connect, the IFFS is able to offer a variety of display formats and a unique scheduling service for attendees to review session tracks, as well as select and add sessions to their personal calendars. In addition, attendees can e-mail specific events to friends and sign up to be reminded or notified via text messaging or e-mail if the event changes.
“We focused on creating an easy-to-use format and display for both our attendees and Web site visitors,” said Waco Hoover, president of the International Film Festival Summit. “Trumba Connect allows IFFS attendees to browse through events in a number of different formats segmented by subject or day. It is a great tool for our program because we have a number of tracks happening at the summit.”
The IFFS event calendar features relevant event information that connects attendees across the industry with descriptions of sessions to download and share with others. In addition, Trumba Connect enables the IFFS to easily maintain and update the session tracks so attendees are kept aware of current information.
“We have created a solution for organizations who want to promote their events and provide interactive, two-way communications between attendees, consumers or businesses,” said Jeremy Jaech, CEO of Trumba. “With Trumba Connect, attendees and other people interested in the International Film Festival Summit have an easy way to learn about specific sessions taking place during the show and a one-click ability to download sessions they want to attend onto their personal calendars. We’re pleased that the IFFS has made us their vendor of choice for communicating event information to their key constituents.”
