Together we can put the Social in Social Media.

Join us for a celebration honoring a year’s worth of TweetUps and networking events throughout New England. Think Red Carpet, meets Music Awards, paired with unprecedented Networking, all at a TweetUp!

This event is for everyone.

It doesn't matter if you’re a business owner, a college student, an executive at a Fortune 500 company, or in transition. People do business with people they KNOW, LIKE, and TRUST and this TweetUp is the perfect way to enhance your life and your career by developing new relationships and strengthening those you already have. It’s also a great opportunity to connect with New England’s best and brightest minds in a relaxed fun environment.

Not on Social Media sites like Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn? Don’t let that stop you from attending. There will be plenty of Social Media Mavens present that can provide you with tips on how to get started and help you see the value of social media for your career and business.

A broad spectrum of industries, interests, and professions such as Technology, Social Media, Music & Entertainment, Gaming, Green,  Tech, Pharma, Gen Y, Education, Non-Profit Sector, Government, Politics, Research, Art, Marketing & Public Relations will be in attendance. Plus, people will be traveling from MA, NH, ME, RI, CT, NY, VT and Canada. So be sure to come out and celebrate a great year for TweetUps, Social Media, and networking events.

Learn & Leverage Social Media

Don’t forget to let us know what you hope to gain from this event. Since we’ll be creating informational sessions based on the questionnaire responses. For example, if 70 people say they want help with Social Media we could host a Social Media Quick Start session to help attendees get started with social media the right way by the industry’s best.

We will be using the hashtag: #MegaTweetup to discuss and share media (pics, videos, audio, etc) about this event.

A photographer will be documenting the event and your red carpet arrival so dress to impress! Even though it’s a social event, be sure to bring your business cards, since this event will be a great way to connect with many different people for outsourcing, partnership, and/or hiring in a fun, relaxed, social environment.

Setting World Records

Plus, we’ll be attempting some World Records so come be a part of history! Hope to see you there!

  • Photo records
