6 Social Media Happenings at CHEST 2018

October 2, 2018 by Vanessa Claude

Ribbons Galore!

Back by popular demand, you’ll once again be able to add an “I tweet” ribbon to your name badge at CHEST. We’ve also included a “#CHEST2018” ribbon to the mix. We hope this will help you to identify other Twitter users at CHEST. Grab a ribbon at the ribbon kiosk near the CHEST Help Desk, or drop by the Press Room, room 006B, to get your ribbon.

CHEST2018 app

The app is back and better than ever.

We hope you’ll enjoy some of the new and improved features our app has to offer. Make sure to update your profile to include your picture, brief bio, and links to all of your social profiles.

Download the app on your mobile device, or access the online program.

Share your selfies!

See a selfie spot and take advantage of it! We know there’s more to your trip than lectures and keynote speakers, and we want to see it!

Throughout the convention center you’ll find many designated areas to snap and share photos of yourself and colleagues! Be sure to find them all and share your images on Twitter or Instagram using our #CHEST2018 hashtag. We’ll choose our favorite photo of the day and reshare your picture with our social media followers. Don’t miss your chance to be featured! 

CHEST Events app game: Click game

Do you like scavenger hunts? How about prizes? In the CHEST Events app, you will find the game Click, which includes a list of photo challenges. To participate, you must be a registered attendee on-site at CHEST 2018. Simply log in and earn your challenge badges by submitting photos to your profile. As you complete each challenge throughout the duration of CHEST 2018, your badges will accumulate, and we will award sweet treats to the top people with the highest number of badges on the last day of the annual meeting. The top score receives Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones! The next six highest scorers will each receive a $100 amazon gift card. Winners can stop by the Press Room, Convention Center, River Level, Room 006B, to collect prizes on Wednesday, October 10, by 2:00 pm local time. Challenges are available beginning Saturday, October 6 at 7:00 am CT, and ends Wednesday, October 10, at 10:00 am CT.
