LMA welcomes new R&D member Burbio


Burbio empowers publishers to engage their local audiences with comprehensive, zip code level community events by aggregating the content and delivering it for easy integration into their digital platforms..

Burbio’s automated technology platform organizes and streams millions of hyperlocal school, government, library, school sports, and non-profit events and allows digital publishers of all sizes to present comprehensive zip-code level content to engage and retain readers and generate incremental revenue.  Burbio provides the content, and publishers can easily create custom web, email, mobile and voice presentation of these highly relevant events important to local residents.   

“Burbio was created to solve the problem of local event communication,” says CEO Julie Roche.  “Getting important community event content on everything from a local news service to a residents digital calendar hasn’t changed much since the internet was invented.  While there has been considerable investment against presenting ticketed events, finding out about school and community events is still a manual process of rooting through newsletters, checking websites, and exhorting groups to enter their own content.  Burbio changes that and gives local news sites a unique and powerful tool to drive engagement and traffic growth”

Publishers can generate value from this content in a variety of ways – integrating custom paid event listings from local merchants and non-profits, promotions from local retailers,, sponsorships sold to community-minded advertisers such as realtors and banks, and as a premium content service for paid subscribers.

Burbio has multiple integration options – custom API, widgets,custom email integrations, Voice, and tools to sell event placements.   Burbio streams millions of events across over 20 states and is expanding rapidly.
