25 Events Pros to Follow on Twitter

Here’s our (highly subjective) list of active Twitter accounts sharing information of use to meeting and event planners.

By Mitra Sorrells August 25, 2015, 7:15 AM EDT

Last month we shared our suggestions of some follow-worthy accounts on Instagram. This time we’re tackling Twitter. With more than 316 million active users each month, Twitter provides a steady stream of thought leadership, innovative solutions, trends, and other ideas for event and meeting professionals. These 25 accounts (in no particular order) regularly post useful, interesting content for those in the industry. We also looked for accounts that have more than 1,000 followers.

This is certainly not an exhaustive list, so please share suggestions of accounts to follow by tweeting with the hashtag #BizBash. (You can also follow @BizBash and our C.E.O. @DavidAdler too.)
