Here on BizAre you a business professional who travels a lot? If so, then you’ll want to download Here On Biz, which brings together all of your professional contacts into one free app. What’s great about Here On Biz is that it allows you to quickly see which of your contacts are around you, keep tabs on your colleagues as they travel about, and get introduced to new professionals of interest in your vicinity on the ground or in the air!

It’s used by business travelers in over 40 countries and has been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, Mashable and USA Today, to name a few. In fact, Entrepreneur magazine called it “one of the most brilliant companies of 2013.” Now Virgin America has partnered with them to deliver in-flight networking and guess who is helping them kickstart their campaign? That’s right, my #TravelSkills chat co-host Chris McGinnis and I will be flying around the U.S. this month on Virgin America and connecting with passengers via the Here On Biz app. It’s all in preparation for the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) convention in Los Angeles July 26-30.

Here On Biz is used by business influencers at IBM, Oracle, Juniper, Amex…and has been billed as the world’s best location-aware business networking app.

To get started, simply:

  1. Login to create your account and authenticate your social networks
  2. Here On Biz magically builds your geo-aware Rolodex of the professional contacts you already know
  3. Start receiving alerts when your professional connections’ travels cross paths with yours
  4. Browse outside of your network and connect with new business professionals of interest
