Collaborating About Social Media At Future Events

December 1, 2009

In part four of a collaborative blog post on McCurry’s Corner, the team discussed where social media fits into future events.

It important to note that we are just at the beginning of the journey. “They” say that social media, itself, is a fundamental shift in the way that we communicate. The integration of social media into meetings and events is a fundamental shift in the way that we view and produce events. It goes beyond communication. It encompasses the way we promote meetings, the manner in which attendees are involved, how the audience engages with the speaker, how people connect with each other and how
the meeting continues after everyone has gone home.

For those planners that are carefully looking at how social media fits into your events, I congratulate you.
