Program: #TrendingNorth

Your fav #MN brands, small businesses & entrepreneurs who get social the right way.

Social Media. You’re on it. Your feed is fire. But as a brand, understanding how to use social media as an advertising tool is far different than posting another face-swap of you & your cat.

We’ll sit down for a personal AMA with some of the most creative and social media-savvy small businesses and entrepreneurs in the Twin Cities inside The Social Lights new HQ. Then we’ll mix & mingle, shop & schmooze your favorite local purveyors. You’ll like it IRL. Bring your #squad.
