It’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, not Daylight Saving Time. It’s almost GSMCON time! We’re pulling together all the last-minute details for our fourth annual social media conference, and we can’t wait to see you in Denver.
This year, we’re excited to welcome a keynote speaker from Twitter AND offer in-person focus groups with Facebook (so you can tell them in person about the challenges you’re facing as they update the platform). That’s in addition to some great new session offerings that dive into social media metrics, how to set up a successful VOST, vlogging tips, panel discussions and more.
If you’ve attended in the past, you know just how great it is to network and learn from your social media peers. If you haven’t attended and are planning to join us this year, you’re in for a whirlwind of awesomeness. And we’re not just talking about the welcome reception. We’re pulling out all the stops to make this year’s conference even more valuable for our fellow gismos.
First things first: Do you have a GSMO pin? (active GSMO members are eligible for a pin). Excellent. Wear it proudly throughout the conference. It’ll get you high-fives, the respect of your peers, winning lottery ticket numbers… OK, maybe not that last one. It will, for sure, get you entry into some special, GSMO-only meetups and targeted networking sessions.
Are you a current GSMO member who doesn’t have a pin? Send a quick email to email@example.com and they’ll check their records and get one to you. Lost your pin? We’ll have replacement pins for sale for $5 at GSMCON.
Networking with other gismos
We’ve heard from past attendees that networking sessions and small-group discussion tables have been some of the most valuable experiences at GSMCON. So, we’re setting aside some our PowerTalk Networking tables for GSMO-only networking, where you get the chance to share ideas, phone numbers, best practices and more with your fellow gismos.
GSMO and GSM will also be represented in the exhibitor area this year! Stop by to meet GSMO staff and council members. If you’re trying to convince your colleagues to join GSMO, bring ‘em by. We’ll close the deal. Or if you have suggestions for a future webinar or GSMCHAT, pop in and let us know. Got a brilliant idea about how GSMO can serve you better? By all means, tell us in person. We’d love to meet all of you face-to-face.
Thanks for being GSMO members – and we’ll see you next month.
