The Shreveport-Bossier Convention & Tourism Bureau has really ramped up their social media presence in the last few years. I truly believe that this is due in large part to the tireless efforts of Christopher Jay – not only a social media guru but also a good friend of mine.
Yesterday, I attended a VIP event that Chris put together to promote his blog 20×49 and local tourism in general. Everyone in attendance was a local social media icon that organizes or participates in something really cool in Shreveport-Bossier City.
I got to eat yummy food, meet & chat with lots of new friends, see some awesome musical performances & lo and behold, yours truly won the grand-prize Staycation Package door prize! It’s filled with passes/tickets to local attractions, restaurants, shows and more – I will be blogging about each one that I attend in the coming months.
As a matter of fact, the whole point of the event last night was to bring in local bloggers/social media gurus & get us involved in promoting Shreveport-Bossier and all of the great things to do here.
I highly encourage you to visit the links above. Keep visiting these sites, sign up for the mailing list, follow them…whatever you can do. It’s the best way to be in the know about all of the coolest upcoming events in Shreveport-Bossier City.
