Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 24, 2014
Golfer’s Grail Indoor Golf & Tap will host Mashable's fifth annual Social Media Day on Monday, June 30 from 6 – 9 p.m. Mashable, a popular technology and social media blog founded by Pete Cashmore in 2005, launched the first Social Media Day in 2010 as a way to recognize the digital revolution currently in motion around the world. Each year, thousands of people organize hundreds of Meetups in recognition of this event across the globe. From Australia to the Philippines, and Sri Lanka to Morocco, social media enthusiasts gather every June to participate in this global movement.
Tampa Mayor, Bob Buckhorn has recognized Monday, June 30th as “Social Media Day Tampa” by issuing an official proclamation from his office.
Social Media Day Tampa organizer Ryan Sullivan believes this day represents another example of how technology influences the lives of millions worldwide. Sullivan has led several similar initiatives including Startup Weekend Tampa and several popular blogging websites.
“We aim to make Social Media Day at Golfer’s Grail the biggest and best social event we have held to date,” said Sullivan. “For social media enthusiasts, developers, designers, marketing gurus and more, Social Media Day 2014 is going to be an event to be remembered.”
“We’re really excited about the opportunity to host Social Media Day in Tampa,” said Jeff Sproat, owner and operator of Golfer’s Grail Indoor Golf & Tap. “We use technology at Golfer’s Grail in a manner that compliments the game of golf while challenging traditional thinking about golf only being played outdoors. Our facility is the perfect place to celebrate this global movement!”
The Social Media Day event will include virtual golf contests and demos on the high tech simulators which allows participants to practice their game with incredible accuracy, play mini golf or challenge any one of the 65 different courses from around the world.
