We had a short 20 minute minute recap, at the end of Community Manager Appreciation Day, but in the whirlwind of it all there was quite a bit we didn’t get a chance to share.
Our 132 panelists during the live broadcast represented 13 different countries:
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- United Kingdom
- United States
We can’t even begin to express our gratitude for every single panelist and organizer. We had volunteers for panel organizers, the awards committee, meetup outreach, editorial coordinators and media outreach. Every single one of you rocks.
Also, huge shout out and thanks to Attention Era Media who hosted us all day.
