Experts from the US, Canada, the UK and the Netherlands will speak at a major social media conference that begins at the Movenpick Hotel in Bahrain today (December 10).
The two-day Social Media Masters Forum is being held under the patronage of Bahrain's Minister of State for Communications Affairs Shaikh Fawaz bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, said a report in the Gulf Daily News (GDN), our sister publication.
It is being organised by the Social Media Club Bahrain chapter and will be led by author and keynote speaker Patrick Schwerdtfeger.
Speakers will share their knowledge about promoting brands, generating sales and better integrating social media into organisations.
They include US National Institute of Social Media president Eric Mills, Social Media Club US president Golden Ashby and social media analytics website Crowdbabble chief executive Canadian Abbas Alidina.
