Social Media Day Detroit Returns to The D in June
Third free annual event promises to be hot ticket in town
June 30, 2012- Detroit, MI – Livio Radio and MotorCity Casino Hotel are teaming up to host the third annual Social Media Day Detroit. Social Media Day is a worldwide event in response to Mashable.com's invitation in 2010 to host a party for social media lovers everywhere.
Theme: The theme this year is "Detroit 2.0". We're going to be celebrating all the great things that are tangible about the re-birth of the city: the startups (and startup incubators) flourishing all over Detroit; the businesses popping up (and moving) downtown; the entrepreneurial spirit that everyone constantly talks about; not to mention the current fascination with the city from the outside. All of this naturally ties back to Social Media as a means to do business, build communities, spread messaging, build networks, etc. making it a natural fit for #SMDay #Det 2012!
What's new: We're mixing things up a bit this year and we're holding the event earlier in the day since it's a Saturday (roughly 11am-3pm). This opens up the door for fun things like a brunch-style menu, higher attendance and, of course, a Bloody Mary bar.
Who will be there: There'll be a young, digitally connected crowd between 21-45 who are enthusiastic about social media, entertainment, music, Detroit, sports and hot new technology.
Sponsors: ExactTarget, Alp Music, Bizdom, Campus Commandos, Core Detroit, Fathead, Party Armor, Picket Report, Quicken Loans, Quizzle, Red Wings, Tigers and Yelp!.
Date/Time: Saturday, June 30, 2012 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Location: MotorCity Casino's Sound Board, 2901 Grand River Avenue Detroit, MI 48201
Cost: Free! Twenty-one and up welcome
