This past November 9th, TravelChatCA teamed up with Travel Manitoba to talk about #PolarBearWeek. Participants came out from across Canada including Ottawa, Kingston, Winnipeg, Halifax and Vancouver. The dream of visiting the region mixed with experiences from people who had visited before, engaged our audience to learn all about the wonders of Manitoba, Polar Bears and more. We had 125 users RSVP at the TravelChatCA website and 139 participants attend the event with over 2,400 tweets taking place during the 1-hour Twitter Chat.
Polar Bear Week was a BIG Success
With engagement at an all time high the Chat was a buzz with questions and conversation. We gained information about Polar Bears, Beluga Whales, and things to see and do in Manitoba. It’s no surprise that the #PolarBearWeek hashtag was the most popular tag used throughout the chat.
Big Buzz Words of the Twitter Party
A big THANK YOU goes to Travel Manitoba for making all of this happen as well as all of the amazing partners that were able to join in on the fun and add to the conversation. Make sure you follow @TravelManitoba, @VIA_Rail and @FairmontWPG on Twitter.
