Technical Airlift Soars to High Altitude When It Comes to Community Involvement

For all of us that made the trip to Fargo for GP Technical Airlift, I’m sure we're all in the same boat this week as we play catch up from being out of the office. What a great event last week, and socially, you can see how many community members were plugged in to what was going on, whether onsite or back in the office. In fact, the first slide of the keynote presentation actually reminded everyone to log on to Twitter and Tweet away during the conference. Apparently the reminder prompted many, as look how impressive these numbers are as far as Twitter hashtag activity goes around the event:

#Airlift12 – 976 mentions

#MSDynGP – 871 mentions

#GPPC – 611 mentions

#GP2013 – 430 mentions

So when you think about how relevant Twitter is to your business and how important hashtags are in following information pertinent to you, just look at these stats. Not only do they demonstrate Twitter activity, they demonstrate community participation, interest in event content, networking and knowledge sharing. With numerous events coming up in the next month, make sure you plug-in socially to those as well: #AXUGSUMMIT, #GPUGSUMMIT, #NAVUG and #DIRECTIONS2012.


Now for the educational wrap up on GP Technical Airlift… My fellow colleagues and bloggers have done a great job in consolidating the event goings-on for your reference. Here are the bloggers:
