Partnering with XING
From the beginning of this network an adequate platform to host the community and offer online networking infrastructure has been evaluated. XING has the most innovative approach to professional online networking which has been implemented into easy-to-use functionality. For individual contact mangement, for community management as well as for the amount of members in the European region, XING has been chosen to be the 1st partner.
In return, XING has appointed Danmark Unlimited an “Ambassador Group” which gives us greater visibility on the platform and grants us the exclusive rights to organise official XING events, which adhere to the high quality standards of XING.
There are currently 130 XING ambassador groups, spread all over the world. With the knowledge and contacts to these groups our members are provided with a platform to build professional relationships and join events around the globe.
