You've spent time on aviation social media, now come and hang out with your friends, fans and followers at this free meetup experience with some of the people who make aviation media come alive. Everyone on the field at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh is invited. This is networking in real life, and it's going to be a blast.

'Oshkosh' is the aviation family's annual reunion, where we all get to see our old friends, and make some new ones. At #Oshbash 2016, the Airplanista Aviation Blog and AviatorCast Podcast invite you to spend two hours chatting it up at our annual social media meetup event. Come ready to meet the coolest #avgeeks flying today, and get some quality face time with influencers, podcasters, journalists, video producers and new media stars from Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, Reddit and Snapchat. The incredible camaraderie in this highly social setting will be the perfect venue to trade the stories of your day at the world's greatest aviation celebration.

#Oshbash Social Media Meetup

We will be inviting aviation podcasters, new media creatives, print journalists, aviation social media rock stars, "A" list aerobatic performers, video producers and aviation radio personalities to #Oshbash 2016. But this event is for ANYONE who uses Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Youtube, Snapchat or Instagram to tell their aviation story. Whether you post once a week, or spend the majority of your day as a professional on aviation social channels, you will be sure to find others who share your passion for aviation social media at this event. Come and put faces to names, and chat in "real-time" with no 140-character limit or need to shorten URLs.

Come for the networking, stay for the BACON!

This year, we will be offering a selection of incredible BACON JERKY flavors for your snacking enjoyment while attending #Oshbash. It will be a great way for #Avgeeks to get their bacon fix, without all the usual mess of actually cooking real bacon. This is the extremely popular Bacon Jerky from Pork Barrel BBQ, as seen on ABC's Beyond the [Shark] Tank television show. And the first 50 #avgeeks to show up at #Oshbash will receive a free BBQ cookbook courtesy of Pork Barrel BBQ!

The refreshments and Bacon Jerky Tasting for #Oshbash are being sponsored
by Mark Spencer of Avilution, developers of the eXtensible Flight System (XFS) avionics suite.

The Venue

Tuesday, July 26, 5:30 - 7:30PM in the EAA Press Tent.

You'll find the Press Tent just east of the Media Center, which is only steps away to the NE from the FAA control tower. Basically go to the tower, and then walk outbound on about the 025 radial, and look for the big white tent full of #avgeeks. They are easy to spot...they're the people holding all the devices and smiling a little wider than everyone else.
