Ritz-Carlton, Toronto builds followers through TIFF tweetup, foursquare updates

By Kayla Hutzler

The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto is using the ongoing Toronto Independent Film Festival to build up its social media followers, with location-based city tips on foursquare, exclusive videos and photos and a tweetup, which is a real-time, Twitter-based Q&A session using hashtags.

Ritz-Carlton is implementing Facebook, foursquare and Twitter for its Toronto Independent Film Festival campaign. The branded hashtag #RCTIFF was a trending topic in Toronto during the tweetup, and the Ritz-Carlton, Toronto foursquare account has jumped to more than 2,000 followers.

“This is one of the first times we have tied our brand’s social media assets so closely to a local, city-wide event like the Toronto International Film Festival,” said Allison Sitch, senior corporate director of public relations for The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, Chevy Chase, MD.

“What’s also exciting is that this was the first tweetup hosted by Ritz-Carlton at one of our hotels, and it was a tremendous success,” she said.

“We love connecting with guests on Twitter, and are thrilled that so many joined us, and tweeted, during the event.”
