Social Media Club Milwaukee has teamed up with

Visit Milwaukee and Best Place at Pabst Brewery


Visit Milwaukee Social Media Club Dynamismo

The business of fun is serious business. In the greater Milwaukee area
alone, tourism spending generated more than $2.3 billion in economic
impact in 2011. Competition is fierce as destinations look for new and
innovative ways to engage leisure travelers and attract groups. What
are the challenges that Milwaukee faces in bringing visitors here? How
do those challenges mirror those of other organizations trying to
recruit new talent, business, and energy to our community?  How is
VISIT Milwaukee forming non-traditional partnerships and thinking
outside the CVB model to address those?

Learn how social media is helping transform Milwaukee tourism with an
"inside out" strategy. And get the inside story on the development of
the Dear MKE film series and how the power of storytelling can be
transformative.

Register here for this fun and informative event. (link)
