Yasmo Closed down January, 2014

Yasmo

Until now, social media have ignored real-life gatherings, focusing rather on building extended virtual networks, which have a poor signal to noise ratio, due to the large audiences.

Geo-location is also under-utilized, often limited to simple “check-ins” or finding people around you.

YASMO turns this on its head by creating communities around the powerful human experience of real-life meetings. Whether business gatherings, or holidays amongst friends, physical interactions are in their very essence temporary experiences.

YASMO prolongs these experiences by giving them permanent digital extensions, allowing users to chat, share & exchange messages, pictures, videos & documents on-the-go within these private communities.

This way Yasmo feeds ‘stickiness’ to the big social network, making it a good potential buy-out.

At Yasmo, we have a dream: for any event organizer, regardless of size or location, to be able to build a digital community around their event.

And now we’ve found a way to make that dream a reality: our instant app creator makes it easier than ever for you, dearest event organizer and valued client, to create your own beautifully tailored app.

This is probably the biggest upgrade we’ve made to the Yasmo app since inventing real-time attendee discovery, and to celebrate, we’re giving it to you for free!

Don’t worry, we haven’t touched the front end. The app still looks as beautiful as it always did, it’s still highly intuitive, it’s still completely customizable, and it still has all the awesome features that have made it a hit with some of the world’s leading event organizers , including Informa ICBI, MCI, Bloomberg and the Intersection, to name just a few. Seeing people around you in real time? Check. Browsing delegate profiles and organizing face-to-face meetings? Check. Skinning it with your own brand or that of your sponsors? Check. Twitter and LinkedIn integration, live streaming, live polls and interactive floor plans? Check, check, check, check!

So, what have we changed? Well, we’ve completely rethought the back-end, cutting ourselves out of the process so that you have complete control over how your app looks and feels.

In practical terms, that means you no longer have to go through us to upload your event program, delegate lists, artwork, speaker presentations, floor plan, create a twitter hashtag, etc. It can all be done very easily – and quickly – through our online management system. And it can all be done until the very last minute…heck, you can even make changes during the event if you want to!

To benefit from our free trial, simply create an event organizer account, log in, and follow the step-by-step guide to start creating your app-happy heart out!
