Votes Pour In As Huntsville Beats Missoula For Social Media Meet-Up
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Huntsville led the final round of voting all day, beating Missoula, Montana handily to host a social media symposium this fall.
Local leaders have been hard at work encouraging people in the region and the state to vote for Huntsville.
The Ad-4! group partnered with the Huntsville/Madison County Convention and Visitors Bureau to produce a video titled “Why I Love Huntsville” to remind people why it is important to support this effort. Watch it here.
Charles Winters, Executive Vice President of the Huntsville Visitor’s Bureau, says they tried to cast a wide net and they hope it pays off.
“Everybody gets their information from a different source,” says Winters. “We want to reach out to as many people as we possibly can and get their support. The vote is tomorrow; this is the last round of voting and the winner of tomorrow’s competition actually hosts the conference in November and we want that to be Huntsville.”
City leaders have said the symposium could bring about $180,000 in revenue to Huntsville and Madison County.
