Laguna Blogging Summit 2013: Discover What Social Media And Blogging Can Do! #2LaBS

POSTED: 08/10/2013  UPDATED: 11/05/2013

They say you are what you tweet, you are what you post on Facebook and Instagram, and you are what you blog about. And other says social media is a unicorn, but maybe it’s just a horse?

Be informed, join the social revolution, and meet the social revolutionists as they share their strategies on how to win it in the blogoshere and online community on the 2nd Laguna Blogging Summit happening on November 14 - 15, 2013 at the Cultural Center of Laguna, Sta. Cruz, Laguna. 

Hosted by Rod Magaru and Florencio Jusay Jr., the second year of the Laguna Blogging Summit (LaBS) will not only promote the tourism of Laguna and talk about Social Media and Digital Marketing, but most importantly promote more awareness for a responsible online and social media community by experts and notable speakers who are successful in their field and advocating information. 

Of last year's huge number of attendees, more participants are expected this year from students, professors, bloggers, social media influencers to media practitioners, young professionals and marketing executives to learn more about Digital Marketing, Social Media, and Branding.  

"This year, we added a new set of speakers like Carlos Celdran who is the new Manila Chief of Tourism, we are expecting that he will share his knowledge, expertise and experience of the effectiveness of Social Media in Tourism and him being the man who won a lot of awards because of his advocacy.", Lead Organizer Grace Nicolas said.

This year's notable speakers also supporting the Laguna Blogging Summit are Digital Marketing expert Janette Toral, Philippine Star columnist Alvin Cloyd Dakis, COMELEC Communications Director James Jimenez, Manila Bulletin's Tech News editor Art Samaniego Jr, Money Talks host at 106.7 Energy FM and Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist  Randell Tiongson, "The Voice Master" Pocholo De Leon Gonzales, one of the best motivational speaker Lloyd Luna, Internet Marketing expert Ben Francia, De La Salle Zobel Green Bloggers Club adviser Rhodora Espiritu, President and Chairman of Earth Day Network Philippines Roberto Guevarra, and social-political-faith issues writer Eyriche Cortez.

The newly elected 3rd District of Laguna Representative Marisol "Sol" Aragones will also be showing her full support to the event. As one of the empowered reporter under ABS-CBN, she surely knows the importance of Social Media now in today's advocacy and the fight against corruption which actually proven by the August 26, 2013 Historical Million People March where more Filipinos not only in the Philippines but around the Globe joined forces to show the same interest in fighting corruption where the first call just came from a single Facebook Community Account.
