UAE celebrates the 4th edition of Social Media Day
The 4th edition of Social Media Day in UAE was held on the 2nd of July at the Radisson Royal hotel in Dubai. The event was organized by McCollins Media and had over 130 attendees. The evening kicked with an opening talk by Meghna Kothari on Social Media in the region. She spoke about the history of the Social Media Day event in UAE specifically (formerly organized by Mita Srinivasan of Marketbuzz PR), the growth of social media in the region, the trends she has seen and what we can expect in the next few months.
Up next was a talk by Hussein Dajani of Red Bull on his experience with local social media customer service. The last speaker of the night was Dave Crane with what should have been a talk, but felt more like a sales pitch on his brand by Dave Crane.
Oh and there were Social Media cupcakes. Those I believe were the highlights.
