We are so excited that it’s that time of year once again, Social Media Day is right around the corner! We are gearing up to make this year’s celebration the best one yet! #SMDAYTampa occurs every year on June 30th thanks to Mashable, we are able to recognize all of the amazing contributions social media has on our community. While every day is essentially Social Media Day, June 30th, 2017 marks the eighth-annual global celebration and seventh in Tampa. Last year we threw an unforgettable party, but this year we are ready to blow it of the water!

We have been organizing Social Media Day since it began here in Tampa and this year we are expecting hundreds of local social media professionals, influencers, and bloggers to come out for an amazing evening. The past few years have been fantastic and this year we have some surprises in store.
Blogger Caravan sponsored by Reeves VW
Thanks to our presenting sponsor, Reeves VW, we will kickoff Social Media Day with our returning Blogger Caravan. Twelve of Tampa’s most engaging and influential bloggers will take a ride around town in VW Beetles! We caravan and stop by a handful of local spots to share snaps, photos, and complete challenges leading up to the #SMDAYTampa Main Event!
If you are a blogger, sign up HERE for the Blogger Caravan.
