VOTE NOW: Cleveland goes after 2013 Social Media Tourism Symposium
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -
Positively Cleveland is in the running to host the 2013 Social Media Tourism Symposium and they need your help!
Voting is underway right now and continuing through Friday, March 15 at noon, Cleveland will battle against other destinations to earn enough votes to host this unique conference. To make it happen, we need to first advance to Round Two - the Elite 8.
Why is this so important to us?
The tourism summit, which is referred to in the industry as "SoMeT," brings more than 200 attendees from the travel and tourism industry to one destination for an annual convention. But these aren't just any attendees. These are the social media gurus at destination marketing organizations, hotels, resorts, attractions and other tourism attractions from all around the world. These are folks who will start online conversations about the convention destination, influence world travelers, share insights into their explorations and help put Cleveland on the map as a great destination.
Now in its fourth year, the conference allows attendees to share ideas and learn more about how social media is effecting the promotion of the travel industry. The conference is unique in that potential attendees have a voice in everything - from the location to the session topics and presenters
The more votes we receive the better our seed moving forward. Please help us to make it to the "Elite Eight" by visiting www.facebook.com/SoMeTourism to cast your vote for Cleveland! Then encourage everyone you know to vote by sharing the link on your social networks and with family, friends, coworkers and employees.
To host this event would be a HUGE win for Cleveland and our city as a travel destination. Together we can make it happen!
