The biggest, grandest, most-watched single event in American sports is coming to New Orleans on February 3, 2013. Over 1.5 million people from all over the world are expected to flood the Super Dome and surrounding streets of New Orleans. Perhaps even more so with Mardi Gras celebrations just around the corner.
As part of our efforts in providing hospitality to visitors and engaging locals during Super Bowl 47 weekend, we are calling on all hospitable locals to join our Sooligan #Social47 Campaign and share their knowledge about local happenings, culture, and hot-spots to thousands of visitors who are going to be hosted through Sooligan. We are on a search for 47 knowledgeable, influential, and highly-active community members on online social platforms. Our Social47 Sooligans will provide Super Bowl visitors with the best of what NOLA has to offer!
WHO is the #Social47: Knowledgeable Locals, Hospitable Locals, City Influencers, Community Leaders, Foodies, and locals who are most active on social media.
WHAT: The #Social47 group will simply serve as hosts of the city of New Orleans by providing information about the city, answer questions posted by visitors about the city, and share their knowledge to help others discover the beauty of the city! Topics range from venues, music, culture, weather, or a specific event.
WHERE: This effort is done simply through your mobile phone! The Social47 may mobilize across the city, but all can be done by simply checking on alerts from the app. You will be alerted if someone nearby has a question or inquiry for you. The Sooligan app will help facilitate these connections and interaction between visitors and locals.
Let’s all help the city of New Orleans make Super Bowl XLVII the most connected and helpful Super Bowl in the history of the NFL!
To be part of the #Social47 Campaign, or if you’d like to nominate someone in your city, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line “Social47″
* Local incentives and perks will be provided to all our Social47 members and partners
