NEW YORK, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The phenomenon of social networking and online communities has begun to emerge in the corporate marketplace.  Interviews and surveys with C-Level management of mid and large-cap firms have revealed a consistent trend towards conducting meetings with investors, employees, media and other constituents online.  MessageBank, LLC.  has partnered with San Francisco based ON24 Inc. to launch service offerings geared towards highly engaging, interactive web-based business events.

The ON24 Virtual Briefing Center is a virtual environment which provides a dynamic online destination to showcase management personnel, company products and services as well as industry information.  Both internal and external audiences have the ability to interact and integrate in web-based settings allowing access to knowledge databases and content through online attendance.

"We are very excited about being a provider and coordinator of 'virtual' meetings in the corporate marketplace.  The concept of meaningful business events taking place in a web-based setting is now a reality.  It's fundamentally an outgrowth of the Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter concepts and a movement towards tangible social networking, training, and productivity in corporate settings," said Steven Fink, Managing Partner of MessageBank, LLC.  "The strategic partnership with ON24 provides us with an unsurpassed technological capability with respect to facilitate these corporate events for both public and private companies."
