Social Fresh Tampa 2011

25 Feb

This week I had the privilege of attending a two-day social media conference in Tampa, FL called Social Fresh. It was an enormous learning and networking opportunity for me as well as any other person that attended. It was awesome to be in a room full of hundreds of people that are as passionate about public relations and social media as I am/hope to be. Social Fresh Tampa kicked off with a Facebook Masters Training in which several speakers such as Justin Levy, Corey Creed, Chris Penn, etc., spoke about using Facebook Marketing Tools for business purposes and the different methods in which to do it successfully.

The second day of Social Fresh consisted of social media training with speakers such as Paula Berg, Schneider Mike and more. On day 2, there were many Q & A sessions that addressed the questions that the audience had. There was great interactivity between the panel and the audience.

Twitter played a big part in Social Fresh Tampa. The #socialfresh feed was constantly flowing during the conference and over 7000 tweets were sent during Social Fresh Tampa. Thanks to Twitter, I was able to meet plenty of people, not only online, but I was also able to meet them in person during breaks. I now know a plethora of PR professionals whom I have actually met IRL (In Real LIfe) and have gotten lots of contact information which will be beneficial for me when I dive into the job market or desire to explore social media with real case studies.

I would recommend Social Fresh to anyone who is interested in social media and guarantee that they will not only have a good time meeting people, but also learn a whole lot of information!
