Get ready Music City! Explore Nashville tickets are now on sale. We’re thrilled to open ticket sales for the second in our five-city event series this year. Explore Dallas-Fort Worth was awesomesauce and we plan to rock Nashville in a big way.

Amber Naslund headlines the day with our opening keynote. Our fireside chat will be with Scott Gulbransen of H&R Block who will give us the low-down on The Stache Act among other brand activities just a couple days before Tax Day (how we got him that time of year, I’ll never know). And then the roster of speakers beyond that is mind-boggling. Someone told me it was like having a day full of keynotes in every session.

Mark Schaefer (author of The Tao of Twitter and the soon to be published Return on Influence), Tom Webster from Edison Research, Sam Ford of Peppercom, Zena Weist from Edelman Digital, Nichole Kelly of Full Frontal ROI, Tim Hayden of 44Doors, Ike Pigott from Alabama Power, John Morgan (author of Brand Against The Machine), Courtney Seiter from Raven Tools, Kevin Magee of Expion and Nashville’s own social media guru Dave Delaney round out an awesome speaker lineup. We’ll also have a full brand case studies panel that features real brands with real results to help inspire your social media marketing.

See the full agenda and more and register for Explore Nashville tickets on our new event website.

The event, presented by Expion and Raven Internet Marketing Tools, takes place Friday, April 13, 2012 at the Embassy Suites Airport in Nashville. We’re anticipating the event will sell out. So get your tickets quickly!

The full day includes breakfast, lunch and a cocktail reception featuring an Angel’s Envy bourbon tasting. Plus, you’ll be invited to Explore’s exclusive online community for ongoing collaboration and connection. The total cost is $400, but buy your ticket now and get $150 off — just $250 for the event! That price is good for the first 100 tickets.

Our first Explore event in February was awesome. One person in the audience — Robert Madison of Spiral16 said, “If Apple built a social media conference, this is what it would look like.” That was pretty high praise (and we’re checking to see if he was under heavy medication) but we pride ourselves on delivering keynote-quality talks throughout the day to stimulate your thinking and help you move the needle on your business using digital and social media marketing.

We’re going to have fun, get to know one another and learn. And YOU need to be a part of it.

And don’t forget to refer a friend. If someone registers and drops your name in the referral question, you’ll be registered to win a Kindle Fire at the event!

Explore Nashville is not possible without awesome sponsors. Make sure you drop these folks a note on Twitter to let them know you’re excited about coming! Our sponsors are: Expion, Raven Internet Marketing Tools, NetBase, Spredfast, Edison Research, 44Doors, Visible Technologies, Vitrue, Argyle Social, uberVu, RedEApp, Angel’s Envy bourbon, Embassy Suites Hotels, SMC Nashville and MarketingProfs.

Get your seat! Can’t wait to meet!

See you April 13 at Explore!
