Sun, Sand and Social Media at the Aloha Summit

Aloha Social Media Summit logoMy friend Dave Taylor came up with a great idea, a social media summit in Hawai’i, and invited me to be one of the presenters. Unfortunately I can’t be there but Dave has arranged for me to offer a special discount to my friends and readers of this blog.

Dave is not only a highly accomplished and respected blogger and social media expert, he has been on the Internet since before most of us knew there was an Internet. His co-presenter, Andy Beal, is another social media expert who, like Dave, has the big picture and can also to get down to practical details to help you make social media work for you.

It will be a small group event, only 28 seats, and in the style of a seminar, so you will get highly personalized attention from Dave, Andy and the other presenter/trainers. They promise no sales pitches, no “death by PowerPoint”.

The dates? March 18-19, 2008

The place? The very swish Hilton Waikoloa Village, Kona, Hawai’iHilton Waikoloa Village

If you want to get up to speed fast on social media, and enjoy some sun, sandy beaches and the odd mai tai, this event will be hard to beat.

You can read more about the event at the Aloha Social Media Summit website. There is a serious reduction in price for an early bird registration before Feb 20th.

And the special discount I mentioned above is $200 (which will be on top of the very generous early bird rate if you get in before that expires on Feb 20 and will still apply after that date): just copy and paste the following code into the box that says “Discount Code”: des.
