Expo Announces Social Media Boot Camp on March 25 at National Press Club, D.C.

NORWALK, Conn.--()--Expo announces a social media boot camp designed to help show organizers build their communities, build their brands and enhance their reach through the use of social media.

The Social Media Boot Camp will be held March 25 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The winners of Expo's Digital Excellence Awards will be announced at an awards luncheon from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. during the boot camp.

The emergence of social media has created major opportunities for trade shows and events. Social networks can be used to market shows, engage audiences, enhance communities, generate buzz and keep participants involved long before—and after—the event itself. More importantly, all of these things offer new opportunities for revenue generation.
