Social Media to be Featured Heavily at BOW11

Westchester Magazine to promote use of new media leading up to & during ‘Best of Westchester’ Event at Glen Island Harbour Club

You are most likely aware of the Best of Westchester event being held  tonight, July 20, at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. I’ve attended this spectacular event on several occasions, a couple times as a Best of Westchester winner, and on other occasions as a member of the general public. This year I am extremely enthusiastic to be attending as a social media partner.

In recent years, there has been a noticable social media buzz surrounding the event, but the 2011 version has clearly taken things to a new level. Westchester Magazine and Kris Ruby’s Ruby Media Group have brought together an impressive roster of individuals and businesses who are leveraging social media with the hopes of generating even more excitement for the event.

It’s difficult to envision, but this already popular party and networking event may reach even loftier heights with the support and participation off an established network of Westchester’s most active social media users. I will be at the event looking for businesses and individuals who have utilized social media effectively in some way connected with this event. Any one who’d like to be featured in my post-party blog post should send me an @message on Twitter or leave a comment below. Westchester Social Media will have a top-notch photographer on the scene, and will be looking for worthwhile images and stories to report.

Some of the highlights I’m looking forward to:

6-7pm: Virtual Q & A with Westchester Magazine Bloggers as well as a Meet & Greet with Bloggers
7-8pm: Meet the Publisher- Meet & Greet with Publisher Ralph Martinelli
8-9pm: Meet Miss Westchester 2011, Christina DeLeon
