This year’s 3rd annual Hawaii Social Media Summit was held at the Neal Blaisdell Center on Oahu October 17, 2012. This event was part of the Technology Expo for Business and Consumers.
The Social Media Summit shared the best practices and insights on developing and implementing large-scale social marketing and advertising strategy. This year’s event focused on the latest in social media trends, with speaking sessions by several of the nation’s most talented social media experts, including two of the social media gurus from Forbes’ list of the Top 50 Social Media Power Influencers, Mike O’Neil, and Lori Ruff.
Hilo Web Design’s own writer, blogger, and eMarketer Taryn got to attend the summit and soaked in one action packed day of all things social media. She attended seminars such as: How to Lose a Fan in 10 days by Trey Takahashi from the Hawaii Social Media Training Institute, Twitter 201 by Susan Tenby, and Social Media Campaigning by Asiana Ponciano the Social Media Marketing Manager from Hawaiian Airlines.
This was a great place to learn, network, and compare notes with some of the social media leaders in Hawaii. Hilo Web Design strives to stay on the cutting edge of technology and social media through education and networking, and pass on the knowledge to our valued clients.
