I’ve been thinking about this for a bit of time especially after the success of the US one which i have posted before (If you don’t know what I’m speaking about have a look at this post here from the Vegas GIS the 2nd ever Tweetup ) It was a great way to meet people that i would not normally of met if it wasn’t for twitter and made some long term friendship because of it. As I posted last night thank to @itweetturf @GCI_Magaine @TurfRepublic for the inspiration
After a discussion with Dean Hardman from the Australian Golf Course on the conference he said he would like to meet all the people who are on twitter and facebook in person. So I said we can look at organising it. With help from Peter Frewin and the AGCSA staff we decided to hold a short meet and greet (TWEETUP) during the opening to the trade show on the Tuesday.. All details are below. So please come along there will be drinks around the place and a great way to meet those on social media face to face.
Feel free to hit me up before or during the conference for any questions on twitter or
