Social Media Kit


Use Social Media to Promote Your Session

AOPA encourages World Congress speakers to utilize their social networks before, during, and after the event to help market their session and gain exposure as an expert on this topic.  Below you will find tips and examples to help you jump-start your individual social media strategy.  We’ve also included a list of social media channels where AOPA is active.  We look forward to your participation at the 2017 World Congress.

Official Hashtag: #AOPA2017

aopa2017Please include the official hashtag (#AOPA2017) each time you post a message that pertains to AOPA or the World Congress.  A hashtag is simply a word or phrase preceded by a hash mark (#), used within a message to identify a keyword or topic of interest and facilitate a search for it.  So whenever a user adds a hashtag to their post, it is immediately indexed by the social network and searchable by other users.  The hashtag will enable people to easily find your information, as well as alert AOPA about your post so we can assist you in your promotion efforts.

tipsMany times when using social media you not only want to shrink a link, but you also want to be able to track the number of people who have checked the link. If you are posting to social media, consider creating a free account so you can do both.

Include a photo! Whether it’s one from the event website or one you take of the speakers, posts with images generate 53% more engagement than those without.  You can download our event logos by visiting
