Social Media at Arboriculture Australia conference
Social Media - a powerful business tool
This years Arboriculture Australia Annual conference (Hobart 30th April – May 2) will offer more than the usual networking opportunities. The Social Media platforms of Twitter and Linkedin will be setup to allow users to find people, see who is commenting and debating conference issues and even follow more that one session at a time.
Enhancing the conference experience using social media is not exactly new but this is believed to be a first for an Arboricultural conference.
There will be a conference ‘group’ called 2012 Arboriculture Australia Conference set up on LinkedIn and Twitter will be using the hash-tag #2012arb
Not only will you be able to follow the content of the conference there will also be a Flickr-photo account set up so you can see what is going on as well.
Often social media is full of warnings about what you can and cannot say and do, but used correctly it has the potential to be a powerful business tool.
