Over the past number of years I’ve attended a lot of events, for eBay and for PayPal. Recently I attended my first ever event for Event Planners – Biz Bash, in New York City. I was brought to the event by PayPal, as one of their Ambassadors. We talked with vendors and attendees about PayPal and the new PayPal Here mobile device.
Naturally I happily took note of all the Social Media use amongst the vendors. My husband did a great job capturing many of them in photos, so we could share them with you, and give them a *shout out* for a job well done.
Starting even before the event, Biz Bash did a great job with using Social Media to promote their event, and keep people informed, including a hashtag. They followed up by having this large scale sign greeting everyone at the entrances to the event. It was evident they see the power of Social Media!
The most yummy booth was The Chocolate Swirl, with owner Lisa Bracigliano. The Chocolate Swirl… has an established Facebook page and Twitter accounts. Lisa was proudly talking to people about them, along with getting people to sign up for her newsletter. I had a great time chatting with Lisa!
Cort Furniture Event Rentals had the largest booth area, but as you can clearly see on the photo, they had great placement with the Facebook logo, with the info to get there. Their designs looked very similar to what I’ve seen at a few eBay on Locations events.
The reps at Keshot were a lot of fun! Their portable photo booths promote sharing on Social Media sites, as you can see in the photo of their specially designed photo machine. Take your photo, edit it on the screen to make it fun, and share!
