WiFi social networking

IDG World Expo today announced that it has partnered with Jambo Networks to introduce attendees to each other wirelessly at before, during, and after the event. Attendees can download Jambo's application to their WiFi-enabled devices to "discover industry peers, potential customers, old friends, or like-minded Mac enthusiasts nearby. Jambo's proximity engine works online and offline and can detect others throughout a convention center, hotel, airport, or anywhere else up to 6 blocks away. Jambo also provides an online community site for Macworld attendees to browse other attendees' profiles."

"Macworld is one of the premier events in the world and is known for showcasing the most innovative technologies for the Mac. Since Jambo offers a Mac-native version of its proximity software, it's a perfect fit," said Charles Ribaudo, co-founder of Jambo Networks.

Macworld attendees will be able to use Jambo to connect with other fellow attendees throughout the conference, as well as afterwards. Attendees will be able to use Jambo's software for the Mac and its online community site to discover like-minded Mac enthusiasts they want to meet nearby, wherever they happen to be. Attendees can sign up online.

"Jambo provides an innovative way to facilitate attendee networking before, during, and after Macworld. We are excited about using Jambo to bring the Mac community closer together and improve the attendee experience," said Paul Kent, vice president, IDG World Expo.
