conferences in Yorkshire - using twitter to make online networking come to life

Using Twitter to make online networking come to life in West Yorkshire.

#Whetherbyhour hour recently took place at Wood Hall Hotel & Spa, bringing to life the online networking hour that has been creating a buzz in the West Yorkshire town since it began in January 2013 and since gaining over 2,700 followers.

Networking has always been key for SMEs, helping to make new relationships and strengthen existing ones, as well as offering advice, insight and support. Networking hours are now happening all the time online, using hashtags to make it easy for anyone to join the conversation. Tweetups bring your online contacts to one networking venue at the same time.

During last week’s #whetherbyhour over 80 tweeters, including local businesses and personalities, came together face to face to share ideas, products, and most importantly to tweet about it. Local BBC presenters joined the networking while business and service providers from the area got chatting along with music, drinks and homemade snacks. 

Wood Hall Hotel & Spa offers a venue for all sorts of business events, conference and private dinners. The team will be delighted to provide more information, or you can browse our meeting pages here.

Join #whetherbyhour on Twitter on Tuesday evenings between 8 and 9pm!
