VOTE: Bring the Social Media Tourism Symposium to the coast

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

The Mississippi Gulf Coast is one of 13 finalists in a competition to host the Social Media Tourism Symposium, which will be held in November. Online voting started Wednesday at 11am and runs through that same time on Friday.

You can vote through Facebook by visiting: https://www.facebook.com/SoMeTourism?sk=app_303561899745219&app_data=dlt-1

During the 48-hour period, you'll be able to vote once for your favorite destination. At the close of the voting, the eight destinations with the most votes will then face off in the "Elite Eight" via a tournament style vote. The winner will be announced at the end of April.

The Social Media Tourism Symposium could bring about 300 people to the coast, including tourism professionals, destination marketers, and hotel representatives.

Previous hosts of the conference include Tunica, Mississippi; El Paso, Texas; and Loudoun County, Virginia.
