Call out for destinations to host SoMet

Applications are now open for destinations interested in hosting the 2014 Social Media Tourism Symposium (SoMeT).

The inaugural SoMet was hosted by Destination Wollongong

The conference, which runs from July 16-17, is targeted to tourism professionals from across the Asia-Pacific region looking to share ideas, network and discover opportunities in social media for destination marketing. The conference is presented by Think! Social Media. 

SoMeT event planner Lindsay O’Neill said, “By hosting SoMeT14au, your destination will form the backdrop for the story that all the attendees will share with their connections. Also the process of bidding itself will demonstrate to your local industry the value of a tourism board and many destinations who participate earn significant PR through the voting process. Beyond the simple economic value of bringing a conference to town, SoMeT offers significant marketing value in terms of exposure generated from attracting a group of social media influencers to your destination”.
