I want to share the delightful experience I had in Miami at our most recent event, aptly named the #SizzlingMiamiTweetUp. The Mandarin Oriental Hotel invited us to visit their beautiful Miami, Florida property as their guests.
The vibrant, festive energy that permeates the essence of Miami took my breath away. Ideal tropical weather provided the perfect atmosphere for our #SizzlingMiamiTweetUp at the stunning Mandarin Oriental Hotel (@MO_Miami). Thank you to one of the most generous and fun hosts ever, Alexandra Spang (@acspang). On behalf of all who attended, I truly appreciate your gracious, attentive hospitality.
Amidst panoramic views of palm tree lined boulevards, tropical gardens, and white sand beaches, I met many social media friends in person for the first time: the famous JD Andrews, known as @earthXplorer by followers, Isa Zapata (@isazapata), Steve Akins (@SteveAkinsSEO), guest of honor Frederic Montagnon (@fred_montagnon) and several others.
Watch the official Miami Tweet-Up video to catch a glimpse of the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel scene and the festive group I had the opportunity to meet at this sizzling hot event. I hope you enjoy it and the bits showing the famed South Beach scene.
Thank you to friends and the Mandarin Oriental Hotel for making the Bringing Twitter to Life with Ann Tran® so much fun and such a resounding success. Each one of you added a unique layer of personality to the fun. I know some of you traveled a long distance to reach our Miami destination – Chicago, New York, New Jersey, and of course our guest of honor, Frederic Montagnon, flew all the way from France.
Finally, I’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Monica Vila for her generous donation of the beautiful Samsung Galaxy Tab for our door prize giveaway. The lucky winner will enjoy tweeting with their #SizzlingMiamiTweetUp friends with all the real estate on that screen. Make sure to follow #VZWBuzz @TheOnlineMom – a community devoted to promoting healthy understanding and appreciation of the positive role technology can play in family life.
Thank you once again for your part in our wonderful event at the beautiful Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
