Two-Day TABPI Twitterfest Oct. 20-21

Want to get advice from B2B editors around the world on how to help your publication through the economic downturn? Or how best to combine print and the web to serve your readers? Then participate in the first Trade, Association and Business Publications International Twitterfest Oct. 20 and 21, 2009.

The TABPI Twitterfest will be like an open chat room where B2B editors worldwide can talk about issues and ask questions.

You can participate in the way that suits you best:

  • Join Twitter and post Tweets on Oct. 20-21. These 140-character messages must contain the tag #tabpi so that other editors around the world can see your Tweets.
  • Point your browser to twitter.com/search?q=%23tabpi and watch what other editors worldwide are talking about.
  • After watching online what others are saying, you can join in on the conversation at any time. While TABPI is encouraging editors to talk about two main topics — the economy and the web — you’re free to discuss anything of interest to our profession.

TABPI president Paul Heney says the main goal of TABPI Twitterfest is to help editors around the globe to exchange ideas, but a very important secondary goal is “to give B2B editors an opportunity to try out Twitter in a friendly, nonthreatening environment — to see how it works and to determine if there is anything that might translate to their publication’s industry. As journalists, we should be willing to step outside our comfort zones and see what the readers of tomorrow are doing.”

ASBPE will be participating in the Twitterfest. Please join us on Oct. 20-21!
