National symposium rolls dice on Tunica
Topping 37 cities from across the nation, Tunica is now in the running to host an up and coming conference on social media this fall.
In early March, Tunica was included as one of 37 possible sites to host the 2011 Symposium on the Use of Social Media in the Tourism Industry. Dubbed SoMeT by its creators, the event is in its second year. Last year, it brought in 100 industry professionals to Loudoun, VA, near Washington, D.C.
The push to bring the symposium to Tunica was led by the Convention and Visitors Bureau, after one of its own attended the inaugural event last year.
