Don’t Miss these Social Media Events coming to Lake Tahoe and Reno
In the next months, a few social media events in the Lake Tahoe – Reno area are on my radar and they should be on yours too.
1. Tahoe Tech Talk 2010 is coming to beautiful South Lake Tahoe Sep 30-Oct 1. This event is promising high interaction with some excellent social media and tech people, such as Gary Vaynerchuk (Host of Wine Library TV), Kevin Rose (Founder of Digg), Ben Kaufman (Founder of Quirky) and many more interesting venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and overall smart people. Check out the complete speaker list. Why I like it? It’s close to home and the price is right. Only $399 to meet some really cool and smart people. It’s only 1 day. I highly recommend it.
2. It’s 2010. Is Your Business Social? This is a Social Media Workshop, 3 hour long, in Incline Village, cost is $10. This one is a bit of a self-promotion. I already wrote about it in a previous post. It’s a 3 hour workshop with topics covering from how to create your social media strategy, how to come up with engaging content, what to measure and who’s doing it well. It’s on Oct 7th in Incline Village. The price is only $10 and it benefits Parasol Tahoe Community Foundation in Incline Village. The reason I’m mentioning it again is because I want to hear your thoughts on what you would like to get out of this workshop. Let me know and I’ll work on getting it on the agenda.
3. Smart Social Media 2010 Reno- Tahoe is shaping up to be a great conference in the region. (Full Disclosure: I’m totally excited to be speaking there!). This social media conference in Reno is scheduled for Dec 8-10, 2010. The list of presenters include David Nour and Scott Klososky among other excellent speakers. The reason I highly recommend this event is because of its travel & tourism track where you will hear from Mike Sloan, leading the marketing digital efforts for Vail Resorts, Chad Hallert from the Eldorado Hotel Casino, Rick Saake from the Reno Convention and Visitors Bureau, and many others on how to use social media for travel & tourism brands. Early registration is only $595. Don’t miss out on this local event. It will be a great opportunity to meet some amazing people, learn from each other and share some knowledge. As with the previous event, I’m asking you for input on what you would like to see in my presentation. This is your chance to be a part of it and to help me out with some ideas. I really appreciate your input.
