In an innovative strategy for the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce Innovation Conference, a social media team of marketing communications and social media professionals will be covering the live innovation event through live tweeting, blogging, video, photography, and LinkedIn. The Brainzooming Group is producing the social media team and content for The Chamber.
This array of social media efforts will provide a content-rich experience to both attendees and those who can only attend the Innovation Conference virtually.
The social media team will be adding to the Innovation Conference by allowing attendees to:
- Track Presenters and Presentations: All social media feeds and links for the Innovation Conference can be found at the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce website. You can also track tweeting activity from the social media team live directly on Twitter and find a transcript of all tweets after the conference as well.
