UPlanMe Launches "Smart-Calendar" Website to Simplify the Way Consumers Discover Events
NEW YORK, Feb.13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UPlanMe, Inc. ("UPlanMe"), announces launch of UPlanMe, a "smart-calendar" site that provides consumers of all ages with personalized event suggestions, specials and incentives, based on their interests, directly to their UPlanMe calendar. The site, launching in conjunction with New York Social Media Week, was created as a one-stop solution for consumers to stay informed about events in sports, music, nightlife, dining, shopping, television, and more.
Sean Barkulis, Co-Founder and CEO of UPlanMe, said, "We are excited to launch this smart-calendar platform to help consumers discover fun and exciting relevant events. Currently, there is no single, all-inclusive place where people can go to be informed of upcoming events, specials and incentives tailored specifically to their interests. Existing methods require consumers to seek-out and find relevant events whereas UPlanMe brings those personalized events directly to users' UPlanMe calendar."
UPlanMe also provides national brands and local businesses with a free and simple way to communicate their specials and events directly to their consumers. Co-Founder and President Brian Kantor said, "We have already seen significant traction from a host of national brands and local businesses across a range of categories looking to provide their customers with access to their schedules, specials, exclusive previews, and ticket pre-sales." Brands such as SummerStage, Thompson Hotels' "Gild Hall," Los Angeles' Arcade Boutique and Chicago's Vintage 338 are actively managing their brand calendars with upcoming events.
UPlanMe partners with Medea Vodka, Radeberger, and SummerStage for their official New York City launch party, on February 15th at Pranna, during New York Social Media Week.
