Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook to share spotlight at national conference

PR and marketing professionals charged with building awareness and community for their brands will get the opportunity to immerse themselves in the latest best practices in leveraging the most important three social networks at PR News’ “The Big 3 Conference” on Aug. 9 in San Francisco.

Just as social media initiatives must be integrated into overall communications strategies and bottom-line imperatives, PR News has integrated Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook tactics into one intensive day of learning at San Francisco’s Hyatt Regency on Aug. 9. Among the brands that will be sharing their expertise in the use of Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook at The Big 3 Conference are American Airlines, Old Navy, Adobe, Boeing, Cisco, Buddy Media, American Heart Association, Esurance, Norwegian Cruise Line, Burson-Marsteller, H&R Block, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and Shine America.

Communications thought leaders from these brands will share ideas, tactics and lessons learned in using Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook to advance PR & marketing efforts. The conference also includes networking opportunities, breakfast, a keynote luncheon, an interactive clinic on team resource management and a cocktail reception.
