Social Media Atlanta Week

Next week marks the inaugural Social Media Atlanta and kicks off on Nov 8th when over 5 days thousands of social enthusiasts will attend a variety of conferences and events around the city focused on the digital medium.  Buzz has been steadily building over the last few weeks and hit a new high today with the proclamation by the City of Atlanta recognizing the week.  Many of the events are already at capacity, but there are several events on the calendar with open slots.  Companies like Newell Rubermaid, UPS, Vitrue, and Engauge are the primary event sponsors, but there is still an opportunity to get your business involved.

There will be approx 30 separate Foursquare venues set up for the week’s events and we are looking for businesses to sponsor door prize giveaways at each of those venues.  This is a wonderful opportunity for you to get your business in front of these tech savvy attendees and the specials at each venue will vary depending on the giveaway.  One example might be a single large prize where all Foursquare users who check-in at the venue would be entered into a drawing.  Another option would be the first X number of attendees who show their check-in all receive a gift.  Ideally, we are looking for tangible items and/or gift cards as opposed to service oriented giveaways.

If you would like to sponsor a venue, please contact me using this form or the folks at Social Media Atlanta via their site.  Venue sponsorships are filling up fast and time is running out before next week, so please contact one of us ASAP.  We look forward to seeing you at the great lineup of Social Media Atlanta events!
