After finally getting out to the great social media events in the Washington DC area, I have become increasingly more “connected” with the people and ideas that are surely blooming in the city. I caught myself jotting down upcoming events and came across one that I am definitely looking forward to attending.
Although the official website is still under construction, registration for the BlogPotomac event is open to the general public! Chairman of the event, Geoff Livingston lets us know that “BlogPotomac is this year’s premiere social media marketing event for greater Washington DC. Attendees can expect a one-day event with nationally renown speakers and advanced discussion of best social media marketing practices.” The event is to be held on June 13 at the State Theater, in Falls Church, VA.
Speakers lined up for the event include:
- KD Paine, who writes a great blog on measuring social media
- Lionel Menchaca, digital media manager and head blogger at Direct2Dell
- Frank Gruber, community manager, AOL and author of Somewhat Frank
- Social Media Group’s Maggie Fox
- …among a few others!
If you’re in the DC area and want to get some great information on what’s going on in the digital marketplace, consider attending!
Updates to come as more details roll in.
