"TechCalendar combines the most comprehensive indexing of these opportunities with a CRM-style workflow allowing users to find and take advantage of highly relevant opportunities quickly and easily."

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Business Wire and ITDatabase today announced the launch of TechCalendar, the industry’s most comprehensive directory of tech events, speaking opportunities and awards.

“There are tens of thousands of tech industry events, awards and speaking opportunities, and trying to track it all manually is a fool’s errand,” said Travis Van, Founder of ITDatabase. “TechCalendar combines the most comprehensive indexing of these opportunities with a CRM-style workflow allowing users to find and take advantage of highly relevant opportunities quickly and easily.”

TechCalendar features a number of options for tech companies to track events important to their brand: one-click “following” of relevant opportunities, the ability to search, find and track specific consumer and enterprise topics of interest, easy options to follow specific event organizers, and a variety of sharing and exporting tools for easy data integration.

“Trade shows and events play a significant part of every integrated communications and sales strategy,” said Leon Harbar, Vice President of Global Trade Shows and Events, Business Wire. “Our goal with TechCalendar was to develop a product so that any communicator tasked with finding and engaging with relevant events within their target market could do so from one platform easily and effectively.”
