Eventopedia – the leading online community for corporate meetings and event planners – today announces that it has been accepted into the Microsoft BizSpark Plus programme.

BizSpark Plus is offered to a select number of start-ups or scale-ups considered to have a high growth potential in their markets. Eventopedia has been awarded $120,000 of Azure cloud services over two years, as well as technical support and a range of other services.
