Let’s get social in Boston

Posted on November 8, 2008 6:35 pm by | Geek Dinners

Shel HoltzI’m headed to Boston this coming week for the SNCR Research Symposium and Awards Gala on Friday. There’s a SNCR reception Thursday evening, which I’ll leave a bit early so I can meet up with good friends from Boston—some of whom I’ll be meeting for the first time. We’re gathering at Vox Populi on Boyleston, not far from the Marlowe Hotel where the SNCR event is being held (2.6 miles, about an eight-minute cab ride, according to Google Maps). The event is set for 7 p.m. If you’re from Boston, or will be in town for SNCR (or anything else), I hope you’ll stop by. Here are the details:

7 p.m. on Thursday, November 13

If you know you’re going to make it, leave a comment so we can have something remotely resembling a headcount.

Boston is a hub of social media activity, so I can’t wait to see everyone. And special thanks to John Wall for setting this up.

  • 1.Shel,

    VERY ironically, just when you are coming out to Boston near where I usually am, I'll be out in San Francisco all week near where you usually are.

    I'd love to get together with folks, but at about the time you all are gathering, I'll be heading out to SFO for my red-eye home.

    Have fun,

  • 2.Morning, Shel. I'm very excited about the Nov. 14 SNCR meeting. I will make a point of meeting you in person. I've spread the word to some Boston-based communicators particularly in nonprofit and higher ed arenas. Jen McClure, who has organized this is terrific and I feel lucky it's in Boston this year where I live. Please forward info about the meeting to whomever you know in the Boston are. I would say we're social media oriented thanks to Harvard's Berkman Center, but there is still so much to do and understand, test and measure results. Bev
