MIDEA Workshop: Maximizing the Returns of Social Networks for Your Museum
June 29, 2010 - June 30, 2010
San Antonio, TX hosted by NMC
Please join the NMC and the Edward and Betty Marcus Foundation for the first MIDEA workshop to be held June 29-30 in San Antonio, Texas.
With the emergence of new technologies and platforms many museums have rushed to create Facebook pages, twitter feeds, and flickr pages. Rather than wait for visitors to create content about their collections, museums need to be present and proactive on social media platforms -- but how best to do this?
Please mark your calendars for the first in the series of face-to-face MIDEA workshops, "Maximizing the Returns of Social Networks for Your Museum." The workshop will be held at the Hotel Contessa on the San Antonio Riverwalk, June 29-30, 2010.
At the workshop, leading experts in social networking and social media will highlight the most popular channels for museums, look at the ways they are being used, discuss ways to gauge success, and outline successful strategies to embed social networking into the things you are already doing. Also on the agenda is a detailed look at the unique ways social media can extend a museum's audience. Participants will work hands-on with real-world scenarios and understand how to expand or create social media strategies back at their home institutions.
The workshop is free to MIDEA members, and is sponsored by the Edward and Betty Marcus Foundation. The foundation has also provided a limited number of scholarships to offset travel costs to this meeting. If the costs of travel would prevent you from attending, please let Rachel Varon know at email@example.com.
The event will commence with a meeting and reception on the June 29, followed by the all-day workshop on June 30.
Online registration is available May 14, 2010 - June 14, 2010, closing at 11:59 PM Pacific Time of the end date. Late registration fees apply thereafter.
