7 Social Media Happenings at CHEST 2017

October 9, 2017

Ribbons Galore!

I Tweet ribbons for CHEST

Back by popular demand this year, you’ll once again be able to add an “I tweet” ribbon to your name badge at CHEST. We’ve also included a “#CHEST2017” 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 help desk, or drop by the press room, room 706, to get your ribbon.

VITweep Seating

Are you an active member on Twitter and would love to live-tweet our sessions? These seats are reserved for you! Priority reserved seating will be designated within many of our most popular sessions this year at CHEST. So get there early, claim your spot, and get to tweeting!

The app is back.

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 #CHEST2017 hashtag. We’ll choose our favorite photo of the day and reshare your picture with our social media followers. Don’t miss you chance to be featured!
