Debworks and G2 Web Media announce the Small Business Social Media Summit to occur June 5 and June 6, 2010 in Hutchinson, Kansas. This summit is designed specifically for small businesses to identify social media avenues (like Facebook, twitter, blogging), how to use them and walk away with a plan for their business. Hutchinson Kansas was chosen not only for it’s easy to get to location, but for its early adoption of social media by their local businesses. This is a Summit every small business will want to attend.
Friday June 4 there will be a reception at the Cosmosphere and Space Center, featuring several people who will share what they are doing with social media and answer your questions. Saturday and Sunday will be at Hutch Hall in downtown Hutchinson.
