Social Media Breakfast Calgary #50 - 8:30 am - 10:30am, Friday, March 28, 2014 - Heritage Park Historical Village

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 24, 2014) - The Calgary Social Media Breakfast (SMBYYC) is pleased to announce the March 2014 Topic:

Gear up! for the Friday March 28 Calgary Social Media Breakfast celebrating our 50th event and sponsored by Heritage Park Historical Village, who are also celebrating their 50th Anniversary


Social Media and Communication tools are changing the way organizations and individuals communicate with each other.

As technologies advance exponentially, the changes affect the auto industry. Car manufacturers are researching and testing technologies that will enable cars to communicate with each other and with the environment around them. Cars are not only going to drive themselves, but will also talk to each other and to the infrastructure around them. Back to the Future is closer than we might think.

Post discussion, the panel will answer audience questions in an interactive Q&A.

Seating is limited. Please RSVP at SMBYYC #50
