PALM DESERT, California, January 28 /PRNewswire/ --

ikordo, the free online meeting planner that organizes and schedules meetings, has an onsite meeting pod open for business at the DEMO 08 conference, being held from January 28th - 30th 2008 in Palm Desert, CA at the JW Marriott Resort and Spa. DEMO is the premier launch venue for new products, technologies and companies. As a gold sponsor of DEMO, ikordo invites delegates to schedule their onsite and follow up meetings at the meeting pod located in the Sponsor Network Lounge. Delegates will have the opportunity to receive tips on best practices from an ikordo expert.

"Delegates are constantly busy networking and meeting with peers in the convenience of the conference setting," said Jim Cook, CEO at ikordo. "We thought that offering delegates access to the ikordo meeting pod at the event would be a fun and easy way for people to schedule their DEMO meetings while getting the chance to try out ikordo with an expert at their side."

About ikordo

ikordo was conceived by IT industry entrepreneur Jim Cook. Jim recognized that meetings are an essential part of modern business life, but that arranging them is increasingly becoming an arduous task, sometimes taking hours and ultimately hindering productivity.

The process of negotiation to find a time and date that fits with everyone's schedule requires meticulous planning and, more often than not, the power of persuasion. ikordo was developed to make scheduling and organizing meetings simpler to allow teams to focus on productivity. ikordo does not require software downloads or shared calendars. It uses Natural Language technology to communicate and negotiate with attendees via email in plain English to find a convenient time.

ikordo is owned and operated by Volutio Ltd. Volutio is a privately held company based in Chippenham, UK and is funded by UK based investors, Eden Ventures. Visit for more information.
