Last night, I attended a networking event in celebration of the Top 3 nominees for the Social Media Awards 2013, at Take Five Cafe in Gastown.
For those of you who don’t know, the Social Media Awards was created by the Social Media Network with Vancity Buzz, to recognize excellence within the social media community in Vancouver. My company, VANEATS.ca had been nominated for Top 3 Best Social Media Channel, competing against the popular Suhrwardy brothers and IFHT.
Check out the full list of Top 3 nominess for all categories HERE!
At Take Five Cafe last night, it was a really cool experience to really get to chat with people I had previously heard, or talked to online. Since part of my job for VANEATS is recruiting bloggers, it was nice to be able to meet them in real life =)
If you are interested in attending the Social Media Awards, the official event is March 28th, 2013 at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Yaletown. The event features 3 key note speakers: Gillian Shaw from Vancouver Sun, Amy Judd from Global TV, and Lien Yeung from CBC Radio.
