Event Details

We are travelling like never before. Travellers often turn to the internet to do their research and social media is their first point of reference. How are you creating engaging visitor experiences to get ahead of the game?

Hootsuite is thrilled to invite you to an evening with some of Vancouver’s most prominent tourism organizations, to hear how they use social media to support their business model and how it has changed the way they engage with their audiences.

Expect insightful, actionable advice from our speakers and plenty of time to meet with them and other social media enthusiasts from across the Lower Mainland over drinks and tasty eats!

Make sure to share your favourite parts on social using #HootupYVR.
