Last Thursday I was fortunate enough to be invited to the London 2012 Olympic Park Bloggers’ Tour.
To say the least, it was an incredible experience!
The Olympic Park is set to be one of the most amazing places London has ever had and, especially during this growing and worrying economic downturn, definitely a key area for the future of this city. We all seem pretty positive the Games are going to boost the economy of this country and the Park, together with the regeneration of the area, is already looking like a fantastic ‘new light’. The Stadium, together with the many iconic buildings being developed, is looking magnificent already and it was simply incredible to be so close to it.
The New Media team is doing an incredible job in keeping the world up-to-date with what’s going on within the Park. The blog is regularly updated with the latest news, they are doing a pretty good job with their Twitter account, and there are webcams monitoring the progress within the construction sites which are simply AWESOME. Also, on our way to the park tour, I won one of the 2012-logo pins; on the package I was reading that 2,012 pin designs will be made. I am seriously hoping that they are going to get a nice social media activity for thisonline-users involved with this…any idea London 2012 team?
I was live-Tweeting from the Tour with some very interesting facts and figures. The interesting thing was receiving questions by one of my followers (the lovely Niamh) which were answered once the Tour was over by the London 2012 TWITeam. (here and here)
I actually created an hashtag (#opbt) therefore if you search for it you will be able to see all the tweets from the day, including photos ! Or simply click here…
A massive THANK YOU goes to the 2012 Team who invited me over, I am very much looking forward to see how the Olympics are going to be promoted in the future within the social media space and how much both the offline and the online communities are going to be involved in shaping the future of the Games
