The Annual Michigan Governor’s Conference (#MIGC10) will be kicking off tomorrow at the iconic Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island (May 6-7th). Every year, the Michigan Lodging & Tourism Association, Travel Michigan, and MSU co-sponsor this terrific all-tourism event.

I’m thrilled to attend this year for a couple of reasons…

First, who wouldn’t want to spend a few days on Mackinac in spring? The beauty is breathtaking and a welcome break from the day-to-day routine.

Second, (and most importantly), I will be bringing four experts from Fluency Media to discuss the power of Social Media for travel destination marketing. For the last year, we’ve had the privilege of partnering with Travel Michigan to manage Pure Michigan’s blog and Facebook fan page. It’s been an incredible experience and we can’t wait to share what we’ve learned.

I would love the chance to speak with you too! If you will be attending the conference, stop in on the Social Media breakout session. We’ll be spending much of our time answering questions from attendees. Either you can take the microphone or DM your question via Twitter to @fluencymedia. We’ll do our best to answer as many questions as possible!

By the way, if you can’t attend, you can follow the conference on Twitter with hashtag #MIGC10.

Are you going to be there? What are you looking forward to seeing and hearing?
