This year, AirVenture will include something never before seen at the massive annual trek to Oshkosh … bloggers coming together to talk about the two things they love best … airplanes and social media. Will you be one of them?
The First Annual AirVenture Blogger Fest – sponsored by Jetwhine.com – takes place at AirVenture on July 28th at 4 PM. The AirVenture folks have been nice enough to – appropriately enough – offer up the GAMA building for the event.
Being an active blogger is not a requirement to attend. We’ll be talking about blogging and aviation in general and anyone is welcome to come listen and learn more about how social media is providing a new kind of voice to the aviation industry.
Since all I can guarantee right now are cold drinks to all trying to beat the summer simmer of Oshkosh in July, I’m open to ideas that will keep the discussion flowing for an hour or so. Certainly we’ll cover a few basics such as writing, blogging platforms, LSAs, pilot careers, airline industry chaos, FAA, air traffic control, flight training, electronic media, business aviation, aviation marketing etc., etc., and so on for starters (I can talk pretty fast!). Who knows where the discussion will lead once our hour and a half is up?
Tell your blogger pal – both ladies and gents of course – that bloggers will be gathering at Oshkosh on July 28 at 4 PM.
Make a note to come join us and say hi. RSVP’s are not necessary, but questions or ideas can be posted here or sent via private e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. See you there.
