New York, NY (PRWEB) December 8, 2010
On Dec. 15 at 6 p.m, at the opulent Hudson Terrace in New York City, the exclusive invite-only event will celebrate the holiday season with the powerhouses of Twitter and Facebook in attendance. Guests of the first-of-its-kind party will be personally-chosen specifically by their social media influence and engagement.
“We’re changing how people are invited to talk about brands and share information,” said Shankman. “By utilizing the rich analytics of Klout, (http://www.klout.com,) a site that allows companies to know and interact with the most influential names within their industry, only those most engaged industry leaders will be invited to attend this exclusive event.”
The holiday party’s sponsors including The Venetian and The Palazzo in Las Vegas, Haworth, Jet Blue, Vocus, Inc., and Nolcha will invite their high-profile industry influencers to celebrate the holiday season in the Big Apple.
“What fun this will be, to join Peter in exploring social media, especially with some of the unique opportunities he dreams up,” said Julie Smith, PR Manager for Haworth, Inc. (@haworthinc) “Haworth has a unique interest in how social media influences work environments and new communities. Corporate cultures are active participants in social media – willingly or unwillingly – and we are researching the workplace changes can be a result of this social shift.”
“This is a groundbreaking way to interact with a brand’s top influencers,” said Dawn Britt, director of public relations at The Venetian (@venetianvegas) and The Palazzo Las Vegas (@palazzolasvegas). “We are excited to partner with Peter Shankman and celebrate the holidays with our most-engaged Twitter followers.”
Additionally, JetBlue Airlines will be flying in guests from other cities for this landmark event.
