SocialLion, a social media agency in Chattanooga, has partnered with Jeramie McPeek Communications to host the first Real Time Summit Oct. 8-9 for professionals in news, sports, weather, travel, entertainment and retail industries. The event, which will be held at The Westin Chattanooga, will help attendees connect with industry leaders and learn how to use high-speed, real-time storytelling to grow their brands and engage their fans.
Award-winning digital media managers and producers like Alissa Gwynn of NBCUniversal Media and Jeremy Thum of the Golden State Warriors, as well as dozens of others, will be sharing real-time case studies, real-time engagement strategies and analytics platforms available in social media.
“Social media and how people interact with it changes every day,” said Clark Campbell, CEO and co-founder of SocialLion. “One of the best ways to learn is to watch how the experts do it. We will get to hear real-time success stories from organizations like Major League Baseball, WWE and VaynerMedia in Chattanooga this October at the Real Time Summit."
Real-time social media happens when a story is told and conversations with fans happen during the actual event as opposed to a recap the next day. This method takes advantage of opportunities by responding and interacting immediately on a social media platform.
“Numerous conferences exist for social media professionals, but none of them successfully addressed the growing need for training and networking in the real-time social media category until now,” said Mr. Campbell. “The Real Time Summit was borne of a group of highly experienced social media professionals’ desire to facilitate conversations and demonstrate thought leadership surrounding real-time storytelling.”
