Second Annual Social Media Day to Celebrate Detroit’s Tech Scene

Social MediaTechnology mingles with some of Detroit’s best and brightest June 30 when Ferndale’s own Livio Radio and the Motor City Casino Hotel host Social Media Day Detroit. Special guest DJs will be bumping Detroit Rock City-themed tunes all night for the expected 1,000 or so guests, and the Detroit Red Wings and Tigers social media teams will be dropping in, too.

The event will feature a contest open to anyone: put together a short video about what social media means to you (or why you can’t imagine living without it), upload it to YouTube and send the link to Livio Radio. The top three videos will be featured at the event, and the winners will receive some pretty awesome prizes as well — in addition to prestige, of course.

The event will take place Thursday, June 30 from 7:00-10:00 p.m. in Sound Board at the Motor City Casino Hotel. Make sure to bring all your social networking gadgets, as there will be free WiFi to help you blog and post photos. An afterparty will also be taking place in Amnesia until 2:00 a.m.

If you’re looking for a reasonably priced place to stay after the event and afterparty, you might want to consider staying at the hotel: Livio has secured an $89 room rate for the Social Media Day Detroit group. To book your stay now, click here.

Finally, there will be everything from sponsored seating areas on the main floor of Sound Board to vendor booths where you can show off your cool technology to other members of the tech crowd. For more information on taking part in this, email
