If you are active with social media then, no doubt, Twitter is one of your main social media accounts. And if you’re in the event planning business then one hashtag that you should follow is #eventprofs. If you don’t I strongly suggest that you should.
Twitter Is a Great Way to Share Event Planning Trends
For me Twitter is one way that I keep on top of the latest and greatest of what’s occurring in our industry. It”s also a great way for me to share my blog post such as this one. Chances are, if you follow the hashtag #eventprofs, then you may have stumbled across this blog as a result of that. If I’ve done my job right, then you have.
Some of the Top Eventprofs Tweets This Week
@OnlineRegReview highlights a recent BizBash article about how important it is to ensure that our event staff are equipped with information that our clients may be seeking. An important, but often overlooked, part of our client services. @pegansb points us to an Elite Meetings article covering a hot-button issue in the industry right now; submitting RFPs (request for proposals) to hotels. @5thAveDigital showcases a Successful Meetings article outlining five corporate trends to watch in 2013. I found point #4, “event organizers will engage audiences with smartphones”, to be quite intriguing. And another article from @EliteMeetings picks up on the smart phone theme, from an “if you can”t beat them join them” angle. I think these articles are hitting the nail on the head as far as integrating smart phones with the way we conduct our meetings. It will be interesting to watch this trend.
