    Who is Social South?

    The organizing committee for Social South is comprised of marketing professionals located throughout the Southest U.S. The organization is led by Scott Schablow, Chief Strategic Officer, Provenance Digital Media. Scott picked up the gauntlet thrown last year by Ike Pigott, along with several other marketers who saw a need for a regional social media conference. Time ran short and it was decided to stage the conference in 2009. This year the conference is shaping up to be a world-class event.

    The mission is twofold:

    1. To create a premier learning opportunity that is close and affordable

    2. Showcase the wealth of talent in our own back yard
