June Program – Eat Drink and Be Social

Businesses from all industries are grappling with social media. Should we enter the social media realm and, if so, how, are questions business owners and marketers must tackle.
The restaurant industry is embracing social media using Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, Foursquare and other geo-tracking sites to attract diners and build a brand base.

According to RestaurantNews.com: “Social media savvy consumers dine out more often and show a higher level of engagement in the restaurant community than other consumers, so building a strong social media marketing strategy is a smart move for restaurateurs.”
Join WMPRSA on June 16 for our panel discussion, “Eat. Drink. And be social!” We’ll hear from three restaurant insiders on how they’re using social media to stay in touch with their clientele.

The panel will be moderated by Josh Depenbrok, founder of GRNow.com. Our panel features:

  • Heather Halligan, Marketing Coordinator for Meritage Hospitality Group (Wendy’s & Twisted Rooster)
  • Marnie Vander Weide, Service Manager, San Chez Restaurants, Inc.
  • Darrel Smith, Viral Buzzer, The Image Shoppe and Experience Ambassador for The Green Well
  • George Aquino, General Manager, JW Marriott
