TweetUp at AIA 2015, Sponsored by GRAPHISOFT
April 29th, 2015 by Mary Moscarello
They say the third time’s a charm – so we are super happy to let you know once again GRAPHISOFT is sponsoring one of the hottest events at AIA! The TweetUp!!! That makes three in a row!
As with past years, the TweetUp is a fun in-person event during the AIA National Convention that gives you a unique chance to bring all your virtual relationships built through social networking into reality. We all know that social networking can provide a powerful link to people we normally wouldn’t come across in our regular day to day routine. Through the magic of Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, tumblr, reddit, StumbleUpon, digg… not to mention blogs, forums, etc… we communicate across time zones, state lines, country borders and even get to know people from other walks of life who share a common interest.
The other thing we all know is nothing beats a face-to-face meeting for making a long-lasting connection. So that “cool thing” that IS social networking gets kicked up a notch to the “ultimately cool thing” level where you can actually shake hands with the person you’ve only known in the ether…
Trust us, it is going to be THE social event on the AIA show floor.
The GRAPHISOFT sponsored AIA 2015 TweetUp.
What’s a TweetUp?
The name “TweetUp” comes from mashing “meet up” to “Tweet” – what is done on Twitter – and basically involves an informal get together where people who for the most part only know each other through an @user name to shake hands, network and socialize over snacks and cocktails (if that’s your thing).
The best part? No 140 character limit!
When is the TweetUp?
It’s happening on Thursday, May 14th during the AIA Convention in Atlanta- at the AIA Town Hall, booth 4345 from 4:00 – 5:00.
How much is the TweetUp?
Who is going to the TweetUp?
GRAPHISOFT is sponsoring it, so we’ll be there for sure. There’ll be a quick speech and you’ll be invited back to our booth to look around and continue the fun. Pretty much anyone who’ll be at the AIA Conference on Friday can attend. To get an idea of who’ll be there ahead of time, monitor the hashtag #aiacon15 and #ArchiCAD to round up your list of user names to meet in person, maybe for the first time! You’ll also want to follow @BIModel1, @ARCHICADGirl and @ARCHICAD to REALLY be in the know about all the show goings on.
Why go to the TweetUp?
You’ll be getting a chance to transform the connections you already have online (which are virtual) into reality. You’ll be networking IRL (or “in real life”)
So make some time to get to know the user behind the @username and go to the TweetUp, you’ll be glad you did!
Not going to be at AIA? No Worries.
(If you won’t be at the AIA Conference, don’t worry! You can still participate – the TweetUp will have a virtual element to it as well. Just follow the #aiacon15 hashtag on Twitter to keep up with the conversation. We’ll post photos and let you know what the buzz is about.)
