Social Media Influencers Summit 2013 - The Event

Pin It

Social media have a great impact not only in the US but also here in the Philippines. There's a huge percentage on social media sites of Filipino users, and I think that's why the best virtual assistants you should hire in managing your social media accounts are skilled people from the Philippines.

The thing is, I've announced on my other blog about the Social Media Influencers Summit 2013, that happened on May 16, 2013 at J Center Mall Mandaue City, Cebu Philippines.

I came early (of course), as one of the volunteer organizers of the event and the video blogger of that day it is my responsibility to come early, record, interview and witness the event. Well, actually I was also multi-tasking (which I don't mind) that day because I was also the ashier on the door to guide the attendees on that day (exposure!).

The event is all about social media (obviously) and making use of it for business, advocacy and being a responsible social media user. Along with its theme "#TrendingForward", we'll be able to share with everyone else the knowledge through this event. Passing knowledge from influencers on different fields and niches, to the people who attended the event.

Check out this short video I've created and covered during the event. There's another one coming up which is still on progress. Go on and watch it!



What amazed me most is the generous support of the local businesses in Cebu, from hotels, resorts and businesses who offers their professional services. Up to a day before the event, a lot of businesses who wants to sponsor the event and influencers wants to be the speaker of the event - maybe next year?

There are lots of people I really want to take a photo with, there are influencers from around the country who actually went to Cebu Philippines to speak and share their social media experience and expertise. But here are some of the people I was able to ask to take pictures with:

There are actually other people I've met and because I'm so shy, I didn't ask to have a chance to take a picture with them but it was actually great to be able to meet them in person (and not just tweeting, being friends on Facebook and reading their blogs).
