YOU Made SMIATL a Great Success, Thanks


2011′s Social Media Integration conference is officially one for the history books. Special thanks to all the sponsors, speakers and 200+ attendees for making SMIATL2011 another great success!

Photos from the conference are live on Picasa. Feel free to tag, share and save.

Along with great memories comes great networking opportunities. If you weren’t fortunate enough to make the event or are just trying to make sense of that stack of business cards sitting on your desk there are tons of options to stay connected after the final Q&A. There are SMIATL groups on LinkedIn and Facebook where you’re free to talk social media until SMIATL12 rolls around.

And of course there’s the #SMIATL hashtag where you can track the conversation from bootcamp to break-out. Speaking of Twitter, you may also want to check out the Twitter list of SMIATL speakers and add them to your contact list.

Oh, the great speakers! Check out your one-stop guide to all the ‘face melting’ presentations right here.
