Convention Centre Liverpool is to host the first event industry TweetUp outside
of the capital in November.
The event hopes
to follow several London TweetUps run by Merlin Events, which included locations
such as the London Eye and recently tourist attraction the London Dungeon.
“We are really
excited to be hosting the first ‘TweetUpNorth’ and to see how social
media can benefit the events sector,”
says GM of the BT Convnetion Centre, Jacquie Rogers. “Social networking can be
perceived as taking away face-to-face interaction, but we are beginning to see
new communities being created as TweetUps are organised across the country,
where people who tweet meet!”
will be a focus for the North
West’s events professionals to network and share best
practices on how to maximise the potential of the micro-blogging website,
The date of the
event is yet to be confirmed.
