El Paso is currently competing to host the 2012 Social Media Tourism Symposium, and if you can imagine, the destination is selected via Facebook!

We narrowly edged out San Marcos in the first round and will soon face a fierce Buffalo-Niagara, New York beginning Monday, April 2nd at 10:00 a.m to Tuesday, April 3rd at 9:59 p.m (Mountain Time).

That also means that El Paso is now the only Texas city in the competition.

We ask for your vote and that you share our quest with as many coworkers, family and friends as possible.

It’s simple! If you have a Facebook account simply log on to the SoMe page at www.facebook.com/SoMeTourism, “Like” the page, and then cast your vote for El Paso when the specific link is made available on Monday at 10am.

If successful, we will move on to the third round of voting from 10 a.m., April 9 through April 10 at 9:59 p.m.
