The event will be followed by a "Tweetup" on Twitter, organized by Corporate Identity Solutions (also known online as "The Tweetup Girls").

Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptop computers so they can immediately apply what they learn to their companies.

"As an interactive marketing company, many of our clients were approaching us with questions on nearly every aspect of social media," Snyder said. "Because social media is growing and changing so quickly, it is difficult for many people, even marketers, to keep up with all the changes. We felt that if we brought together a group of people we admired and gave business owners the opportunity to learn from a these subject matter experts, attendees would walk away with a complete experience at a much higher level than we could provide by hosting a short event on our own."

Tickets for the event are $95 per seat and are available online at For more information, contact Snyder at (262) 250-9400.
