Long Beach, Calif. – January 25, 2010 –, the leading provider of free conferencing services, today announced a breakout conferencing feature as part of its full-featured conferencing service, Now, during a live conference call, a conference host may distribute callers into up to four breakout conferencing rooms.

Eliminating the hassle of creating separate conference lines for sub-groups within a single conference session, is one of the first free conferencing providers in the industry to offer the convenience of breakout sessions. To initiate a breakout session, conference organizers must first organize a conference call by notifying all participants of the date and time for the call and providing them with the conference dial-in number and participant access code. The host must then assign topics or discussion sessions for each breakout conferencing room?along with a leader who will guide the call during the breakout sessions. At any time during the live conference call, the host may distribute callers into the breakout conferencing rooms by keying in "#" and the number of the conference room. Callers may return to the main conference session at any time.

As an innovator in the conferencing space, saw a need for the unique breakout conferencing feature and jumped on it.
