During this year’s Social Media Week, HootSuite UK Ambassador Allan Blair Beaton hits the road on a legendary HootTrip. He’ll be hosting  four  HootUps across the United Kingdom from London to Glasgow and loads of places in between.

The purpose of this mission is simple – Allan wants to meet, mingle and share stories with as many UK owls as possible, while learning how people like you use HootSuite for social media success.

Remember owls, what happens on the road… stays on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

So… What’s on tap?
