We are psyched and proud to be throwing this event with the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development as a Summit Partner for the 3rd year in a row, and thrilled to announce this year’s Summit will be held on Thursday October 27, 2011 at Gunstock Mountain Resort.
Gunstock is a four-season recreation mecca that’s breaking all kinds of new ground in 2011, and is custom-made for adventurists, trailblazers, thrill seekers, leaders, dreamers, and biz dynamos like YOU.
As we work with our amazing team to design a unique, energetic, and entertaining biz adventure that’ll knock your socks off, what we can tell you now is this:
The 2011 Summit will be a full-day experience that’s not just about “social media.” It’s about how to succeed and create new opportunities using the tools and platforms that continue to revolutionize the way we all do business, interact with customers, and change the world.
You’ll hear speakers from Microsoft, Constant Contact, Meltwater Group, and more. What’s more, you’ll learn how to expand, engage, and LEAD with video, email, and mobile marketing, blogging, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, geotargeting, and hyper-local search. Plus, you’ll see how connecting with influencers, partners, and your ideal audience is easier and more effective than ever before.

In a nutshell, we’re in the business of engaging leaders, inspiring entrepreneurs, and redefining what’s possible for bold brands, innovative businesses, and mission-driven organizations in this dynamic, relationship-driven world.
You’ll also enjoy a continental breakfast, a full lunch, and refreshments, plus by popular demand, we’ve added plenty of room for networking, too! Gunstock plans to open its 3,900-foot zip line – the longest in the continental U.S. – before the event, so you may even get to see it in action while joining us for drinks, socializing, and fantastic door prizes in the Gunstock Pub at the end of the day.
You should know this is NOT a “101″ training-type event, and it IS suitable for both newbies and experienced users, too. While there will be countless and specific tips and strategies shared throughout the day by our Featured Speakers and many other NH business leaders and new media trailblazers, the Summit will showcase what’s happening AND what’s possible in the social space throughout the Granite State and the world at large.
The whole day is designed to be an electric, inspiring experience for YOU. It’s a day to generate ideas, spark conversations, tune into the energy of the almighty “A-Ha!”, and ignite positive, purpose-fueled ACTION. It’s going to help you raise your marketing and success game overall, and raise your team and your business up with you.
Finally, parking is free at the Summit, and there’s lots of it. Gunstock Mountain Resort, our Venue Partner, is a breathtaking destination all on its own. Taking a drive to the Lakes Region for this event on a beautiful fall day is going to be part of the FUN and adventure, so treat yourself to a day away from the office, where you can breathe, focus, strategize, re-energize, and experience the power and possibilities available to you right now.
(Your future self will thank you!)
