Trumba Powers Smithsonian Museum and Gallery Calendars

Trumba Connect Enables Smithsonian Institute's Online Visitors to Quickly Find and Connect to Their Events of Interest

Seattle, WA, October 14, 2009 – Trumba Corporation, a developer of innovative online event promotion and event publishing technology, announced that the Smithsonian Institute has deployed Trumba® Connect to power online interactive event calendars that integrate seamlessly within the Smithsonian website. Trumba Connect provides organizations with a powerful set of easy-to-use event publishing tools which allow them to quickly and easily promote events within their existing websites.

Using Trumba Connect, visitors to the Smithsonian Institute's website can download workshops, event series, performances, and even IMAX film events onto their preferred personal calendaring systems including: Facebook, Yahoo Calendar, Apple's iCal, Google Calendar, and Microsoft Outlook. Administrators at the Smithsonian can easily obtain reports on which events are most often downloaded or viewed and incorporate that information into their analysis for future event planning and promotion.

"The demand for event promotion on the Internet exists within greatly diverse organizations, from the NFL to the Smithsonian Institute," said Dan Hickman, CEO of Trumba. "We are seeing increased demand from Internet users for easier-faster-better ways to connect them to their events of interest."

The Trumba Connect event widgets can be found embedded within the following Smithsonian websites:
