More and more attendees of NACHC conferences are turning to Twitter and other social media platforms to share their experience and join the conversation. At the Community Health Institute & EXPO, we saw a record number of attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and NACHC staff share their experience at the CHI using the hashtag #chi12.
Here are some great statistics about the conference:
- 126 different accounts participated during the duration
- They posted 781 individual Tweets with #chi12
- Those Tweets had over 1 million impressions. For example, five Tweets by an account with 100 followers garnered 500 impressions.
To encourage more people to participate, NACHC and Benco Dental provided a Twitter board which was placed outside the EXPO, showing a live stream of what was being said. We also had a sweepstakes for using the hashtag, where three lucky winners got $100 Amazon gift cards and one grand prize winner got a $500 credit toward NACHC conferences or trainings.
