City Of White Plains To Partner With Burbio - Innovative Calendar-Syncing Tool

Do you ever feel like it’s hard to keep track of the many interesting events happening in our White Plains community?  Now there’s a solution.  The City of White Plains is excited to announce that it is partnering with Burbio, a free online platform that aggregates community events into a central calendar resource.

“We all lead busy lives,” said Mayor Tom Roach. “Between the school calendar, the kids’ extra-curricular activities, family obligations, and work meetings, it’s challenging to just keep track of it all – and that’s without even adding in City events, business events, and the many interesting programs and activities sponsored by our community-based organizations. Enter Burbio: The calendar tool for the modern citizen. Simply identify the calendars you want to follow and Burbio will do the work for you, providing concise information about upcoming events in our community.”

Burbio makes it easy to find local events in White Plains.  Residents personalize the events they see by subscribing to calendars published by local businesses, community groups, not-for-profits, and the City.  The City plans to use Burbio to publicize dates for Common Council meetings, city-sponsored events, and meetings of city boards and commissions.

Not-for-profits and businesses in White Plains stand to benefit from Burbio’s power to promote their events.  Getting started is easy: White Plains Not-for-profit profit organizations and businesses interested in participating in Burbio should contact groupsupport@burbio.com.  Burbio lists not-for-profit events for free.

Business can promote their events for a small fee.  The White Plains BID will be offering Burbio's business events program to its members.  “The White Plains BID is pleased to partner with the City of White Plains and Burbio to streamline and highlight the diverse events happening in downtown White Plains,” said Brittany Brandwein, Director of Events & Promotions for the White Plains Business Improvement District.
