Information about the Two Social Media events at ACS in Boston

Our good friend, PID Girl, has taken the initiative to set up boston resized 600two events for social media users during the ACS Conference in Boston.

Here's the details from PID Girl:

We've got two confirmed Social Media Events scheduled on Monday August 23, 2010 one in the EXPO and the second in the evening at an off-site location.

If you are in attendance at the National Meeting at the Boston Convention & Exposition Center (BCEC) located at 415 Summer Street, Boston at 4pm on Monday August 23, 2010, come by ACS expo booth #236 for "A Gathering of the social media peeps at the ACS National Meeting". All registered attendees/exhibitors are welcome to join us at this informal social media gathering to discuss their experience and use of social media in academia, research, government and industry. Additional discussion will be on how to utilize social media marketing to promote the upcoming International Year of Chemistry (IYC2011).

Evening Tweet-Up: Open event to Social Media Users in town for the ACS National Meeting and Local Tweeters in the Boston area. Anthony's Pier 4 welcomes our Twitter Group to meet in their lounge at 8pm on Monday August 23, 2010 at 140 Northern Avenue, Boston, MA 617-482-6262 (located on Boston Harbor-above is a daytime picture of the view from Anthony's Pier 4). This location is within walking distance from the BCEC. Spread the word.

Many thanks to PID Girl for setting these up - we hope to see you at ACS!
