UPDATE: Bright Eyes is happy to be giving away two $100 gift certificates at the Social Media Day Meetup! It is the least we can do to support this great event and Tampa Bay Tech! There are tons of other great door prizes also, including food, concert tickets, and more! So come on down!
If you haven't heard yet, this Wednesday night will be the biggest social media event in Tamp Bay since Foursquare Day. The event was conceived by Mashable as a means to get together and celebrate Social Media. It is called Social Media Day, and there are over 100 people planning to attend the local event! In fact, Tampa currently has the 14th largest gathering of the 550 in the world according Mashable's Meetup Everywhere page.
The Social Media Day locally is being organized by Jordan Leonard and Kyle Williams. It is being held at the Tampa Bay Brewing Company at 6pm on Wednesday 6/30. You can find out more details about the event, as well as RSVP and catch up on the pre-event conversation here. When making plans, don't forget to use the hashtag #TMMUP.
The local success of this event is just more evidence that Tampa Bay has a vibrant and growing tech scene. We at Bright Eyes are so excited about it, we are closing early this Wednesday to take part. So if you see me and the Bright Eyes staff be sure to say hello!
