Explore Tourism™ Social Media Boot Camp 2011 is a new marketing seminar that focuses on social media marketing for the tourism industry in Mexico. This two-day seminar, held in the Riviera Maya October 8-9, is open to travel and tourism businesses that want to learn more about and effectively use social media to increase profits and the number of tourists to the Riviera Maya.

“We are really excited to bring the first Social Media Boot Camp to the Riviera Maya, a seminar that will prove to be an invaluable resource for tourism businesses. It will also gather industry professionals together where they can share ideas to boost the economy and increase individual profits,” said Kay Walten, the keynote speaker and event coordinator. In addition to Kay’s international social media consulting firm, she is also the owner of Locogringo and a well-respected social media marketing voice in the industry.

The seminar is designed to empower and educate more tourism industry professionals on the use of social media marketing techniques for their businesses and inspire marketing professionals to work with others to promote the Riviera Maya as a first-class vacation destination.

Explore Tourism™ Social Media Boot Camp 2011 will build an understanding about social media, define the best social networks for tourism-based businesses, provide free resources for the ongoing successful use of social media strategies and bring tourism-based businesses together to discuss and learn the most effective ways to coordinate promotional strategies for the destination, a much needed strategy after recent challenges faced by the Mexican tourism industry.
