Since this is the first official blog post on the DFW Rocks Social Media Day 2013 Conference website which is a celebration of Mashable’s Social Media Day, it seems only appropriate it is dedicated to the people that have contributed to making the conference happen.
NosalCentral donated the development and design services for this website, which is where we have shared presentation information, speakers bios, sold tickets and during the social media conference will feature LIVE blogging during the sessions.
The speakers, without each one of them the 17 presentations and the early morning bonus session wouldn’t be possible.

Thank you to all of the businesses and individuals that have donated door prizes for the conference.
Channel Three Productions who is videoing the conference sessions on both days. Each speaker will be provided with his or her session for future use.
Mason Pelt Media, who will be providing photography services.
The additional support team that is helping me during the event includes Jimi Bratt and Nikki Bassham.
I can’t forget Robin Moss and Mary Gregory, who even though they will not be there in person, they have listened and provided wise council regarding event planning, been my sounding board and even helped find the little gift each attendee will get from me during the conference.
A special thank you to all the conference attendees that have already purchased their tickets and those that will be over the upcoming month. Without all of you eager to learn from not only the speakers, but each other, the DFW Rocks Social Media Conference wouldn’t be able leave the footprint it has online and offline.
I have to end this blog post with thanking Mashable, without them declaring June 30 Social Media Day in 2010, the DFW Rocks Social Media Day Conference might have not ever happened.
I tried to think everyone, but this list really goes on and on. Every one of my online and offline connections have made a great impact on this conferences success, so thank you! Even if I didn’t mention you by name, your efforts are appreciated, valued and haven’t went unnoticed.
