NEW YORK CITY, February 16, 2015- FForward, a smart web-based platform which provides exquisitely screened networking events for young professionals in the greater New York City area, announced the expansion of its website to include Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco this month.
“Globally, more than $500 Billion is spent on events and conferences” - Lawrence Coburn, CEO of DoubleDutch. With the greater New York City area alone hosting over 1,000 professional events each month attributing to over $10 Million in ticket sales.
Launched last July, FForward was created to help make the process of finding and attending events for business professionals more efficient. Instead of searching through multiple industry websites and newsletters, FForwardis a one-stop shop providing an aggregated calendar of events categorized by industry.
Thanks to the calendar’s filter capabilities, young entrepreneurs can also select their spectrum of interests including tech, finance, real estate, design/architecture, marketing/media, fashion with a few clicks and displayed in an easy-to-read poster board layout eliminating the time wasted scrolling through irrelevant events.
Users can also subscribe to receive a weekly newsletter tailored to their specific industry and city. Event organizers of business events are also encouraged to submit their event to the online calendar, where the team at FForward tweet out the best events to their 50K Twitter following.
FForward is an events publication that aggregates, categorizes and highlights the best business events for professionals across 5 cities in the US. The events discovery guide is dedicated to supporting the careers and companies of the next generation of leaders and influencers by helping them find and access industry relevant events.
