The YouToo Social Media Conference is an all-day event featuring different sessions with topics related to the latest trends in social media. This year’s conference topic is Social Visualization and Gamification and features keynote speaker Shel Holtz, Principal of Holtz Communication & Technology and opening speaker Kevin Dugan, Director of Marketing at the Empower Group.
Students can benefit from this year’s student-only development track at the conference. In the morning, students can attend a one-on-one session with Shel Holtz as he talks about how he got into the industry and relates his experience to the students. The afternoon has a wrap-up session by the Akron Area Young Pro’s group just for students helping them apply what they learned during the conference to their school work and internships.
The benefits of attending this year's conference include:
As a student who has attended past conferences, I can say from experience the YouToo Social Media Conference is a great way for us to network with professionals and get our name out there. I also learned a lot of information I know I can use in my school work now and future career. The conference is a great experience for upcoming young public relations professionals, and I highly encourage you to attend," Taylor Titus, VP of professional relations, says.
