What’s happening at the conference? (Dolphin hotel)
We will be in two places this year: The solutions showcase floor (downstairs) and next to the information desk (upstairs). In the upstairs lounge we’ll be introducing our new Social Business User Group community. Look for the team from Wellesley Information Services to help you get signed up.
We will have charging stations for your mobile devices, including short term lockers, so you can charge up your iPad while you walk the expo floor.
Come to the social lounge for informal 20 minute talks with our social mavens. Look for the schedule in a blog entry later this week!
Meet Team Social:
And don’t forget to stop by and introduce yourself to team social! Our team include Joyce Davis, Colleen Burns and me – Marjorie Madfis. We’ll be joined by staff and volunteers who love to be social and want to help you be social too. Look for us in the bright orange “I’m Connected” t-shirts.
Looking forward to connecting with all you socialites!

Social. It's like air.
Sometimes foggy, sometimes clear.
Tech helps social everywhere.
