Using social media around a conference can be a great way to create buzz and raise awareness. It can help in promotion of the event itself as well as broadening the visibility of the speakers to audiences who could not attend in person.

Follow us on Twitter!Twitter is the most versatile and widely used social media platform for conference promotion and during this workshop I will discuss strategies and uses for Twitter before, during and after a conference. These strategies will make your event really stand out and to create an extra layer of depth that can repurposed in the future. Whether you are organising an upcoming event or attending, this workshop will help you to stand out on Twitter, whether you have just created your account or whether you are an experienced user.
