Members benefit from personalised event recommendations
XING takes account of member profiles and networks to serve personalised event recommendations from among the 150,000 events posted every year. That way, members can check out interesting local events, while the people2meet feature shows them who else will be attending and who they should definitely connect with. These recommendations are based on XING profile commonalities as well as shared contacts and XING groups. The Event Market also provides an overview of top events from various different industries as well as established official XING events hosted throughout the German-speaking region.

Thomas Vollmoeller, XING CEO, said “XING connects people, not profiles. With the XING Event Market we bridge the online-offline gap yet. Not only do we put business professionals in touch with the right employers and contacts, we also serve them personalised events to improve their working life.”

Events also available on mobile devices
The XING Event Market is already available as an iOS and Android app, thus allowing participants to quickly and easily get in touch with other interesting attendees and meet them in person. The app also provides event details such as the agenda, speaker list, venues and sponsors. All of the events listed on XING are available via the iOS and Android apps, which makes them a great way to discover exciting nearby events.
