When the Web’s Most Powerful Personalities Come Together With the World’s Most Influential Brands and Non-Profits, #ShiftHappens ShiftCon is the first eco-wellness social media conference.
>>>>>>>>>Very Excited to be Attended this Conference!! Watch Mommie…Again as She Turns Green>>>>>>>>>
Los Angeles, CA- Everyday we see the impact of viral social media on the culture. The Arab Spring, Kony, even celebrity news, all affected by the access that sites like Twitter and Facebook provide. What happens when hundreds of the country’s most influential bloggers and social media movers are gathered under one roof to talk about how they can charge the national discussion around the way our families eat and live and impact our environment? What if you also connected them with 60 of the brands and non-profit organizations that could help energize that effort?
Taking place in the heart of Los Angeles at the Crown Plaza, ShiftCon is the three day catalyst that will help further empower those who shape the conversations filling our social media news feeds and status updates. Many of the attendees have already done that, being featured in stories on Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, USA Today, Babble as well as broadcast television (Dr. Oz, CNN, CBS, ABC, The Talk and more). Three days of panels, parties, Farm to Table food trucks, keynotes from some heavy hitters and the opportunity to connect with non-profits working to change laws and get new ones on the books will have a lasting effect well beyond those 72 hours and we’d love for your reporters to come see what it’s all about.
