When & Where
The Highland Social first began back in April 2011 at Contrast in Inverness and was set up by Michelle Russell of Snow Marketing to allow businesses from across the Highlands to meet up 'socially' and share their experiences and stories of using social media for business.
Due to success of the first few events the Highland Social was turned into a bi-annual main event with mini seasonal 'Social's' and casual 'Social's' happening in between to keep everyone up to date with the latest social media news!
In 2013 we also introduced the #socialroadtrip which takes the networking events and social media workshops to the road and out across the Highlands.
Each main Highland Social event features the famous 'social' cupcakes by Cupcake Creations Inverness and go down very well!
Sponsorship opportunities are available for all events and more information can be found on the website.
The hashtag for all Highland Social events is #highlandsocial
The nominated charity for all main Highland Social events is The Archie Foundation based in Inverness.
