Your ACUTA 2013 Social Media Guide

The Association for Information Communications Technology Professionals in Higher Education (ACUTA)

nec-acuta-2013-empowered-campusNEC is in full force at the second full day of the 42nd Annual ACUTA  conference and exhibition, which focuses on technology and communications in higher education. The show is taking place at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, CA, until Wednesday.

We are here at Booth 513 showcasing our portfolio of integrated solutions for higher education, which includes mobility, unified communications and cloud-based communications. You can also get real-time updates and photos from the show on Twitter via @NEC_Channels.

After a successful first day at ACUTA 2013 yesterday, we learned a few tips and tricks on who’s who in the “Twitterverse.”

  • First off, if you’re not following the official ACUTA 2013 hash tag, you need to check it out – #acutaconference13. You’ll find ample content from show participants and vendors, session takeways and key conversations just waiting for your input. If you were unable to attend ACUTA 2013, following the official hash tag will help keep you updated on all of the happenings at the show. 
  • On the same note, the conference’s official Twitter page, @ACUTA, contains updated session and event information. 
  • ACUTA’s president for 2014, and an NEC customer, Mark Reynolds, is tweeting his personal ACUTA 2013 observations at @msreynolds55 (pictured below).


  • Check out John Gallant, chief content officer of IDG, on Twitter @JohnGallant1. He moderated the conference keynote, “Envisioning the New IT Organization Through the Eyes of an Extraordinary CIO,” yesterday (pictured below).


  • Another must-follow is Marty Parker and the great minds with @UCStrategies. There’s always something to learn from their unique insight on Unified Communications.
  • This year, ACUTA introduced a new social medium called Rockzi. Just visit to keep tabs of the latest industry news from ACUTA participants and vendors.
