Columbia Chamber Hosts Social Crush Aug 16-17

SocialCrush, the popular, two-day, hands-on, interactive social media business conference announces a new stop on its nationwide tour. On August 16-17, 2011, SocialCrush will be in Columbia, SC, at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.

“We are thrilled to be working alongside the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce to bring this fantastic event along with a heavy-hitting line-up of the nation’s top social media minds to Columbia,” says Tim Moore, CEO of SocialCrush.

While event organizers are still finalizing the list of speakers and professional instructors, the current line-up hails from a list of who’s who among top social media companies and thought leaders. This list includes speakers and trainers from Twitter, HubSpot, Foursquare, Edelman Digital, Hashable, SayItSocial, and PRNewswire.

“SocialCrush is a truly unique social media conference offering businesses of all sizes actual hands-on advice and training for developing successful and cost-effective social media business strategies,” says Nicole Curtis, Director of Communications for the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce. “Having recently attended a SocialCrush event, I was able to see how powerful it was to have direct access to top minds in the social media industry. I know our diverse businesses in Columbia can benefit from an event such as this,” Curtis continued.

“SocialCrush does something no other social media conference does; it provides real help to medium and small business owners teaching them how to engage with social media and profitably market themselves anywhere on the web,” says Moore.

Sessions will show real business people how they can use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, social search and mobile efficiently and effectively for business and marketing, as well as the strategies and analytics needed to listen, monitor and grow online brand identity to keep their businesses ahead of competitors and turn fans into fanatics.
