In addition, this year IFT is utilizing the social networking sites LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr to communicate about highlights and changes for the Annual Meeting & Food Expo® as well as to allow those on-site to engage in the virtual IFT community. On-site, Annual Meeting & Food Expo® staffers will be using Twitter to gather questions from the audience during the Keynote Session. In addition, for those attending the meeting, we will be having a treasure hunt using IFT09’s Twitter page, so keep checking Twitter at the show!
As a part of the electronic show daily coverage, IFT will be blogging live from the event, reporting to you on interesting things from the show floor, sessions, panels, and networking events. Keep an eye on IFT’s ePerspective blog for these posts and participate in the discussion by posting your comments to the blog during the show.
The 2009 IFT Annual Meeting & Food Expo® kicks off this Saturday, June 6, in Anaheim, Calif. If you are attending or exhibiting at the event, we look forward to seeing you there! For event coverage on each day of the show, make sure you visit IFT LIVE, which is IFT’s event daily in electronic form!
