Confabb – conferences as social network application

Confabb – conferences as social network application


Confabb is a new web app to aid in the attendance, review and publicity work for conferences. It’s got a hint of upcoming.org about it, but with that very specific conference focus. It applies a bunch of neat Web 2.0 concepts – reviews, tagging, sharing, etc. to its function set. I think it’s a great idea!

If Confabb gets traction in the non-geek conference attendee group, I’d say it’s setting itself up to be a significant player in the conference space.

I can certainly see myself using Confabb to discuss the small number (I’d love to be a serial attendee, but I’m not there yet) of conferences I get to each year. I might even try to organise an event or two.

Robert Scoble shares my view (he was first, actually), and TechCrunch has a very in-depth discussion up.
