January 16, 2013 (Rockford, Mich.) – Integrating social media into day-to-day business is more crucial than ever. So together Chaco and SmartWool will host Hashtag Happy Hour, bringing together the industry’s community managers, manufacturers, and retailers to mingle and discuss social strategies during the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in Salt Lake City. Swing by the Chaco booth #32136 on Thursday, Jan. 23 from 4-6 p.m. to hear what the experts have to say about social media and join the free-flowing discussion.

“SmartWool and Chaco go together like peanut butter and jelly, and we both believe in the power of connecting with consumers and retailers via our social networks,” comments Kelley Freridge, Chaco marketing specialist. “By bringing together social community managers from throughout the industry we have the opportunity for brands and retailers to connect in real life and collaborate on best practices.”

“We want to provide the opportunity for manufacturers and retailers to get together to discuss goals, strategies, and tactics for expanding social communities. Understanding social media's role can help brands develop deeper relationships with their consumers and elevate their brand in the eyes of their consumers. Fostering these relationships leads to stronger communities and helps develop stronger sales," notes Jeff Snow, SmartWool digital marketing manager.
