The 2nd Laguna Blogging Summit 2013 will be this coming October 15 and 16 and will start at 8am to 5pm at the Cultural Center of Laguna which is located at the Municipality of Santa Cruz, the capital town of the province of Laguna under Governor Jeorge “ER” Ejercito.
This is the 2nd time Laguna will have this big event about Social Media and Digital Marketing which according to the organizers is to promote also the Tourism of Laguna and for Lagueno to become more educated and aware, thus it brings experts and notable speakers who are successful in their fields and advocating information.
The theme this year is Social Revolutionist, a theme appropriate for what’s happening today. People are not only using Social Media to promote their products or services or just to hook up with their friends, they are also using it for political campaigns, advocacies and even finding a job. Social Media revolution is happening and we can see people gathering like-minded individuals to form a group with same beliefs and with the use of Social platforms like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and continuing it offline. There are so many professionals and advocacy groups right now who are formed from Facebook accounts and benefited from it. We are bringing these experts to Laguna and we are hoping my fellow Lagueno will learn from them.” According to Engr. Grace Bondad Nicolas, the lead organizer of this event.
More or less 700 attendees are expected to attend per day. Last year, total of 1500 participants which were composed of Students, Professors, bloggers and media practitioners enjoyed, experienced and became more aware about the advantage of Digital Marketing, Social Media and Branding.
“This year, we added a new set of speakers like Carlos Celdran who is the new Manila Chief of Tourism, we are expecting that he will share his knowledge, expertise and experience of the effectiveness of Social Media in Tourism and him being the man who won a lot of awards because of his advocacy.” Nicolas said.
This year, notable and famous speakers again are supporting the Laguna Blogging Summit, to name a few, they are Janette Toral, Alvin Cloyd Dakis, James Jimenez, Art Samaniego Jr, Randell Tiongson, Pocholo De Leon Gonzales, Lloyd Luna and Eyriche Cortez.
” There’s nothing more remarkable gesture these days than seeing collaborative efforts in flesh that made 1Labs possible. In a generation where Internet is no longer a source of pleasure but a source of information that can improve the lives of those who use it, such an event is commendable. 1Labs was a gathering of like-minded individuals whose passion for innovation is core and commitment to move the people closer to the wonder of technologies is evident.”– Motivational Blogger, Speaker, and Author Lloyd Luna of http://www.lloydluna.com
“1LABS was a blast! I learned so much from both the speakers and the participants, that I think this should be a model of social media engagement for other local governments to follow. To make a long story short, I can’t wait for the next one!” –COMELEC Director James Jimenez
