On May 18, at Loews Royal Pacific Resort, the Orlando chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth hosted the 10th annual SMART Awards recognizing growing companies headquartered in Central Florida. Seminole county based Lake Mary Internet Marketing was chosen as the social media partner for the event, adding a live posting element that brought real-time social media coverage and engagement.

“Live posting on social media has become a great way to connect clients, partners and members with the excitement of an event in real time. Our team goes out with multiple devices, Twitter handles of companies and employees, and we highlight the important happenings at the event with a pre-selected hashtag that’s promoted beforehand,” said Lake Mary Internet Marketing Founder and CEO Will Henao.

Engaging in crowd-sourced conversations through event hashtags is rising in popularity as it allows event organizers to ignite and fuel conversations that reach beyond the walls and runtime of the event.

“ACG is focused on building member business relationships, and in this day and age, there’s no better place to start than social media,” said ACG Orlando President Stefan Rubin. “We chose Lake Mary Internet Marketing as our social media partner because they had the expertise we needed to add live-posting and social media elements to the event.”

The awards highlighted dozens of Central Florida companies and drew hundreds of attendees, but Lake Mary Internet Marketing’s live event social media services provided the opportunity to engage a much larger audience in award recognition, event highlights and sponsor promotion. Live posting is a relatively new tactical tool not yet offered by many marketing and promotions companies and is now available in the Central Florida area through Lake Mary Internet Marketing.
