Last week, Social Media Club DC recently held an informational/networking event called "Sports in the 21st Century: How Teams Utilize Social Media" at Dirty Bar. Sponsored by AT&T, the panel covered various topics in the sports and digital media fields such as social media best practices, athlete and fan interaction, content development, sports leagues' social media restrictions and opportunities for future innovation in the industry.
The event itself featured a tailgate party aspect with drink specials, free food and beer koozies in keeping with the sports theme. In addition, several high profile panelists came out to share their knowledge: Dan Hellie of NBC4 Sports; Will Yoder, a Digital Strategist at Octagon; Steve Cobb, Co-Founder of Activ8Social; and Twanda Washington of AT&T.
After the panel discussion ended, AT&T held a raffle with the prizes, like a Plantronics headset and a Samsung tablet.
Social Media Club DC's next event will be on October 17th, 2012 at Co Co. Sala and sponsored by Treater. RSVP here: smcdc-oct-2012.eventbrite.com.
