WorldMate enables business travelers to connect with their LinkedIn contacts
WorldMate Inc., the industry leader in mobile travel services with nearly 5 million members worldwide, announced today that it has integrated with LinkedIn’s APIs to give WorldMate users the power to connect with business colleagues in their destination city.

WorldMate members will be able to communicate easily with their entire LinkedIn network through the WorldMate website and Blackberry app.

With this new offering, members can share their travel and meeting itineraries, notify their business contacts when they arrive in their destination city, search for contacts by city, and quickly access professional profiles of their colleagues before walking into their next meeting. This LinkedIn functionality is immediately available to all WorldMate users.

“This WorldMate integration is a perfect synchronization of our two companies' strengths and goals," said Adam Nash, Vice President of Search & Platform Products at LinkedIn. "LinkedIn’s mission is to connect the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful. The WorldMate integration extends our mission by allowing members to access their professional networks when they’re on-the-go. WorldMate has taken an innovative approach to our APIs, extending and tying together the LinkedIn experience to both web and mobile.”

The LinkedIn integration to WorldMate gives members a host of new tools to manage business connections, including:

- Quick view of nearby LinkedIn Connections within the WorldMate itinerary
- A mobile pop-up displaying which LinkedIn Connections are in town upon arrival
- The ability to scan for and connect with colleagues in the same town

“One of the most important aspects of business travel is building and maintaining professional relationships," said Nadav Gur, CEO of WorldMate. "It is only natural to incorporate networking when scheduling an upcoming trip and our integration with LinkedIn makes this possible as never before. WorldMate is dedicated to developing the best features and functionality to make business travel more successful for our members.”
