Social Media Club Auckland Returns for 2013

Social Media Club Auckland (#SMCAKL) today announced its larger than life return for 2013 with a new team, new venue and renewed enthusiasm.

Social Media Club has welcomed a number of well-known social media hotshots and communicators onto its organisational team this year including Vaughn Davis (The Goat Farm), Julie Landry (PR), Kirsti Grant (SocialSauce), Angela Farrelly (Air New Zealand) and Julian Waters, who co-organised the highly successful 2012 events.

"Social Media Club Auckland is the leading forum for exploring the cutting edge of modern marketing and communications, especially social media,” says Mr Waters.

The refreshed format and dynamic new team coincides with a new venue. The event series will this year take place at Vodafone NZ, on Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour.

"As an early adopter and supporter of social media for customer service and engagement, we welcome the opportunity to host Social Media Club at Vodafone this year,” says Geri Ellis GM Digital & Social Media at Vodafone NZ.

The first event is on Wednesday 27 March, 6pm at Vodafone NZ (20 Viaduct Harbour Ave, Auckland). The evening’s topic is "Public Relations and Social Media – using Twitter to chirp a brand’s tune."

The remaining monthly panel topics are currently being decided via a Facebook poll which event attendees have been encouraged to vote on.

“We want feedback on our suggested topics for the year. Whatever we cover we're confident we'll get together the top thought-leaders and practitioners in New Zealand,” says SocialSauce Director Kirsti Grant.

Advertising and social media company owner Vaughn Davis is also enthusiastic about the event series: ”Social Media Club is a must-attend for marketers and business communicators in 2013 – if you want to share what you know and learn from others, then attending is a no-brainer.”
