“The Social Experience:” Elevating Social Media at Microsoft's Convergence 2013

CONV13Hot Off the Press... Microsoft is looking to elevate the role of social media before, during and after Convergence 2013. To do this, they have created a new space within the Conference, “The Social Experience,” located on the outer edge of the expo hall, near the registration area. You can expect to see a 6’x3’ media wall displaying the Live Wall, which will be showing sponsor content, customer videos and event announcements. I’ve heard they will be also broadcasting the keynote and select general sessions to this wall, live.

“The Social Experience” will also include casual seating so that people can sit down and connect as with the Social Media Command Center. Again, I’ve heard this will be a high-profile, dedicated workspace for Microsoft’s social media team and will include 5 flat screen monitors to track social media activity by ERP platform. You can consider this as a ‘safe landing’ in a crazy event environment, with the ability to charge your laptops and tablets, work, relax, as well as check out the Media Wall.

Now to the other exciting news… I’ve been asked, along with 11 other high-profile social media members at large, to be an official blogger for Convergence 2013. To top off this opportunity, Microsoft has offered to supply the bloggers with Surfaces during this event (so no need to carry heavy laptops…. Yippee!) to help with the convenience of their social media activities.

Before you head out to New Orleans, make sure to plug in the following bloggers into your RSS feeds and add them to your Twitter account so you can hear what’s happening live during Convergence 2013!
