Devon Social Media Cafe meets for the first time tomorrow (Tuesday 15 September) in Plymouth and among the VIP guests expected at the inaugural event are Leader of Plymouth City Council, Councillor Vivien Pengelly, and Shadow Leader of Plymouth City Council, Councillor Tudor Evans, who is a prolific user of social media websites such as Twitter.

Aren Grimshaw, one of the organisers of the Cornwall Social Media Cafe will also be speaking about the Cornish Twestival, a charity event organised by social media users that took place on Saturday which managed to raise over £2,500 for local charity CHICKS.

Devon Social Media Cafe has been set up by public relations consultants PR Dogs Limited after they were asked to advise a number of business groups on the best ways to use social media.

Director John Taynton said: “We are delighted by the enthusiastic response there has been from businesses and organisations to the formation of the Devon Social Media Cafe. Social media is a very valuable part of the marketing mix but people are often unsure of how to make the best use of it.

“Devon Social Media Cafe will allow companies and individuals to exchange ideas and formulate best practice. I do hope businesses and other organisations will find it useful.”

The event is tomorrow (Tuesday) at Bar HaHa in Plymouth, from 6.30pm onwards. Spaces are still available and there is no charge but anyone wanting to attend is asked to reserve a place online at: http://devonsocialmediacafe.eventbrite.com/ or telephone 01822 600100.
