Leading conference discovery platform teams up with powerful software to offer valuable membership incentives and benefits.
San Francisco, CA January 25, 2012 — Conference Hound, the San Francisco-based conference discovery platform that makes it easy for attendees to search for conferences for professional and personal advancement, has joined with BUMP-Network (BUMP) to incorporate BUMP’s powerful, yet easy-to-use, software. Under the terms of the agreement, Conference Hound registrants will be offered a suite of money-saving and useful membership benefits including discounts on conference passes, travel, meals and entertainment.
“We’re really excited about this partnership because it benefits everyone in the conference eco-system,” Bruce Carlisle, CEO of Conference Hound, commented. “If finding and tracking conferences, speakers and colleagues is not enough, now we will add meaningful incentives for Conference Hound registered attendees and conference organizers.”
By joining with BUMP, Conference Hound will give its members the advantage of benefits, privileges and discounts on some of the costliest parts of their conference attendance, including travel and dining. BUMP CEO Mitch Thrower said, “We are delighted that Conference Hound will be working with BUMP to manage its member incentive program. Their discovery platform combined with our incentives should give attendees plenty of reason to ‘Hunt with the Hound.’”
Conference Hound will begin offering complimentary memberships (for a limited time) to new registrants at http://conferencehound.com in February of 2012
