Save the Date! SxSe 2012 in Key Largo

The official "conference room" at SxSe. No Powerpoints allowed!

Last year was a total blast in the Key West! This year we're going to stay a little closer to Miami by spending a weekend lazing about in beautiful Key Largo.

On Friday, September 28 we'll gather for happy hour, followed by a leisurely day and a tweetup on Saturday. Sunday will be the usual check-out routine as we stop to have a long, relaxing lunch and a sunset cocktail on the way back home.

Official SxSe headquarters will be at the Hilton Key Largo.  Our beachfront rooms are $129/night double occupancy. Click here for reservation details. The property features an activities concession if you choose to go kayaking, windsurfing, etc; but as always lounging by the pool or beach and doing nothing is highly encouraged.

The official SxSe tweetup will take place at the Pilot House just 2 miles away on the evening of Saturday, September 29. Visit Facebook for the official event invite.

We'll post details on room discount codes and additional logistical information on this website. Check out the links on the sidebar. @sxse is your best source for last-minute details, but you may also visit our Facebook Community Page. The hashtag is #sxse.

Please note that you are under no circumstances obligated to stay at the Hilton or to spend the night in the Florida Keys if you want to drive home after the tweetup, although we don't recommend that choice!  But if you want to stay elsewhere, that's fine. It's just more fun when everyone is in the same place.


Prior to Friday, the Florida Keys Digital Marketing Conference will take place at the hotel and will be Monroe county's edition of Social Media Week. Some folks who will be at SxSe will be lecturing or delivering workshops but the event is not directly related to SxSe, although we are cross-promoting and we thought, hey what the heck? Might as well stay for cocktails!

Special thanks to Shirley Wilson of Social Media Management and Liza Walton of Miami Social Marketing for helping to coordinate the tweetup, room rates, discounts etc;  @vicequeenmaria is still the chief troublemaker so you can always tweet her if you have any questions.

Other friends of SxSe who are supporting this ultimate unconference are listed on our sidebar. Although we are a purely social, non-commercial gathering, discounts or comps on goods and services are always welcome.
