OK, here’s a quick hitter.

The award winning DoubleDutch mobile event app just got a little better, thanks to our friends over at LinkedIn.

We have now integrated LinkedIn functionality with the DoubleDutch Event app in three ways:

  • Event attendees can now sign up / login to a DoubleDutch event app with their LinkedIn account, and import highlights from their LinkedIn profile (photo, title, description)
  • Event attendees can now look up which of their LinkedIn contacts are also attending the show, and painlessly add them to their DoubleDutch Event app’s network
  • Event attendees can now push out updates to their LinkedIn activity feed

LinkedIn is the dominant professional networking tool and boasts millions of users, complete with rich structured professional profile data.

As an event organizer, why should you force your attendees to recreate these professional summaries when signing up for your mobile app? With the DoubleDutch Event app, your attendees won’t have to.

By allowing your attendees to quickly and easily pull in their LinkedIn profiles, you will set the stage for superior networking at your event.
