The American Marketing Association of Atlanta (AMA Atlanta) has been serving our community for six decades and is the 4th largest chapter of the AMA in the country. Every year the AMA throws the AMY Awards honoring Atlanta area marketers and is one of the largest annual professional events in the metro area. The 2011 AMY Awards will be held at the Fox Theatre on Thursday March 24th, and tickets are still available.
Given the awards celebrates accomplishments in marketing, the Atlanta AMA has decided to include a new componenet this year using one of the hottest tools that marketers are incorporating in their campaigns: Foursquare! The first 40 persons to check-in to the AMY Awards 2011 Foursquare venue will be rewarded with a $25 gift card to Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant (promo sponsor). You must be present to win.
Official Twitter hashtag for the event is #AMYS11. You can connect with the Atlanta AMA on both Twitter and Facebook.
Personally, I think it is fantastic that the AMA has added a Foursquare component into their event and look forward to seeing more from them going forward. Good luck and congratulations to all of the AMY Award nominees!
