Inspiring Online Communities Via Real-World Events

Online networks keep us connected, but there's nothing like meeting face-to-face to put the social back in social media. Come meet industry experts from organizations using real-world events to build awareness, spread enthusiasm and empower their online communities. Join a dynamic conversation moderated by Boing Boing to find out how NASA, Disney Parks and Playstation are working to get social media out from between the keyboard and chair, how you can be part of these special activities, and best practices for throwing your own social media events.
