Event Details

The Destructo Tour is a 3-city conference & event tour across South Louisiana, starting in Lafayette then to Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The doors open in Lafayette at 7 PM and the event starts at 7:30.

The purpose of these events is to raise awareness of the use of Social Media for businesses of all kinds, dispel myths and show how Social Media can be fun and effective for business, and to benefit community based non-profit organizations.

In each city, we'll have a Social Media conference with a panel of speakers. The headline speaker is weblebrity/social media superstar from Tampa, FL, Amber Osborne a.k.a. "Miss Destructo" (www.missdestructo.com). The week before this tour, Amber will be in Austin, TX as a panelist at SXSW, the largest media/music conference in North America (www.sxsw.com).

The Lafayette Conference is sponsored in part by:

The LITE Center


Miss Destructo and a panel of local Social Media personalities will discuss:

  • A Rising Tide Raises All Ships: Why Should Louisiana Businesses Use Social Media? Why Now?
  • The Nurture and Value of Advocates: How to Build a Community that will Build You Back
  • SM = Seafood Marketing: Fun with Louisiana Food Bloggers and How to Cross-Promote

Ticket sales will benefit local, community based non-profit organizations in each city. These non-profits will be invited to attend the conference to learn how to use Social Media tools to help accomplish their goals. They will also be given the opportunity to present their organization at the conference.
