“Tweetups” are all the rage, bringing people together from every industry. There are two things these people have in common: they’re in Chicago, and they tell everyone where they are and what they’re doing.
This summer The Local Tourist, JenChicago, and Mr. Tweetup are hosting a tweetup with a twist. The hosts are among Chicago’s most influential Social Media personalities and they love the Windy City so much they want to encourage everyone to be “Local Tourists”.
The TLTweetup will host 120 Chicagoans on the Free Spirit Luxury Yacht for a night of networking on Lake Michigan, complete with food and beer, wine and soda, and every guest will receive a goody bag filled with offers from local attractions, restaurants, and things to do, inviting them to be tourists in their own city. And since it’s a tweetup, everyone on board this three hour tour will be posting on Twitter and Facebook throughout the night.
You can get your gift certificate or discount offer in the hands of this incredibly social group by including goodies in their gift bags. Inclusion is only $100, and in addition to leaving a lasting impression with 120 of Chicago’s Social Media influencers, you’ll also receive:
· Your company name and link on the Facebook and The Local Tourist TLTweetup invitations
· Blog posts on The Local Tourist, SamiAri.net, and JenChicago.com
