Branson is one of 13 cities in the running to host the Social Media Tourism Symposium (#SoMeT13US is the hashtag to follow on Twitter). The host city of this tourism-focused, social media conference will be chosen via tournament-style voting on Facebook.
“Branson is ideally suited for this conference. With new flights on Southwest Airlines it is easy to get here. SoMeT13US attendees will have a great conference at the Hilton Branson Convention Center, with a lot of fun activities at Silver Dollar City and around town”, says Ross Summers, president and CEO of the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce & Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Public voting began Wednesday (March 13) and runs through 11 a.m. Friday, March 15. Voting is open to the public and will take place on the Social Media Tourism Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/SoMeTourism.
