The EyeforTravel Social Media conference never disappoints. The speakers are engaged and more than willing to share their personal triumphs and challenges. The practical examples are invaluable. I would recommend this conference to anyone looking to pursue social media for their organization.

Amber Robinson, Director - Marketing Communications, TU Group

Immensely valuable to me as the Sales & Marketing Director for a small property management company with few staff members. I now understand what it will take to build a successful, engaging social media program and have added some priceless tools to the limited resources available to me. Case studies by so many of the presenters were fascinating and dead on with exactly what I was looking for! I truly feel "I Get It" now...Thanks for a great program! Hope to join again next year!
