A Recap of #YVRSocial Career Focus


#YVRSocial was surreal. It definitely exceeded our expectations and made me realize even more how much people do want to connect in person with other social media industry professionals.

Over 100 social media professionals and enthusiasts attended our inaugural sold out event, which generated over 7M social media impressions. Everyone tweeted, shared, and connected with the speakers and with each other – which caused our event to trend throughout the night!
