Happening this Saturday 27-June-2015 from 10:00am to 8:00pm at the Museo Pambata Open Grounds is the biggest social media gathering of 2015, bringing together online communities in the Philippines, in celebration of #SocialMediaDay2015. @IGersManila will be there, and yes, we’re ready for #ChangePH. If you haven’t already, better get your free ticket at bit.ly/ChangePH, else you’ll get that FOMO (fear of missing out), as there are a lot of exciting must-do this whole day of Saturday–so tag along your friends and loved ones, and make sure you bring with you fully-charged mobile devices.
We’re embracing #ChangePH, a timely theme as @IGersManila adapts to change, and as we reminisce how our Instagram’ing habits have evolved, here are Instagrammable things you can do at this year’s most sharable event.
1. VISIT THE COMMUNITY EXPO
Here’s your chance to meet and interact not only with IGersManila but with various online communities, non-profits, advocacies, and social media savvy brands, each with Instagrammable, uniquely-designed booth and ready with fun activities you’ll surely enjoy and exciting contests where you can get to take home a surprise gift or two. Snap photos and videos of you or your friends at the expo and upload not only in Instagram but in all major social media networks, and who knows, tagging communities to your posts might win you more prizes! Be snap-happy and have fun checking out the community booths. Gadgets, mascots, sumptuous food, colorful drinks, cute stuff, amazing freebies, interesting activities, new online and offline friends–these will be your Instagram subjects. Come on time and ask each community for official hashtags to be used.
2. JOIN THE EXCLUSIVE IGMNL INSTAMEET
If you registered to @IGersManila’s Circle of Snapshooters #iCoss, you should have received an email to join our exclusive, invite-only Instameet right inside the amazing museum of Museo Pambata from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. Get to meet our moderators and collaborators who will be there to orient and guide you on the photowalk activities and show you around. Here’s where you’ll need your fully-charged camera phone, though we’re sure you have a power bank on hand, a wifi modem if you have one (there’ll be plenty of available wifi at the venue of course), and that monopod or selfie stick. We’re excited to see what awesome visual stories from the museum IGers will come up with.
3. STICK AROUND FOR THE TALKS
Snap and learn this time, because in the afternoon, @TweetupMNL lined up lightning talks on a myriad of topics that will show you how social media and technology has changed or affected our daily lives. Throw a challenging question or two for the speaker on your favorite topics and cap each session with a selfie worth bragging about to your friends and share your wonderful learning experience.
That’s it, if you think this list isn’t Instagrammable enough, then check out the IGersManila booth, we’ve prepared snapshooting activities and amazing surprises for our fellow IGers. Keep the good vibes rolling! #ktgvr
