The Big Social schedule is packed with a ton of company and customer led workshops and sessions. However, we’ve also got a bunch of social fun packed in there, too. We’re hosting a dazzling welcome reception at the beautiful, new Perot Museum of Nature and Science on Monday night. Tuesday night is The Big Social party on the 33rd floor of the W Hotel. But, the hottest ticket during The Big Social has to be the Social Media Lounge (SoMeLo).

Oh yeah! Sure, as the Social Media Lounge host I am a bit biased, but I am really confident we’re going to have a lot of fun this year. Last year we hosted some cool activities and fun surprises.

We served up cotton candy in the #SoMeLo last year. (Yes, I can now put cotton candy machine operator on my resume. Thank you.)

We celebrated International Talk Like a Pirate Day. The awful Pirate Blue Beard showed up to share his plunder of iPads, Beats headphones and more. And he mocked people. He’s a pirate. What are you going to do?

We gave away fun daily prizes.

Of course, there was also a lot of lounging, recharging and just being social.

Oh. Did I forget to mention candy? Lots of candy.

However, don’t look for an exact repeat of last year’s activities and goodies. I’ll give you a few clues: ZimPin, striped socks and 3D. Hmmm…

The Social Media Lounge opens for business on Sept. 23 at 10:30 a.m. I expect to see you there!

In the meanwhile, stay tuned to all our social media channels, including all of our new Zimbra channels. We’ll be broadcasting updates and taking questions and feedback all the way up to and through The Big Social. Here’s the full list of our channels where you can connect.
