New HootUp Record, Summer Festivals + More ~ Your UK Roundup


Although Spring showers are pouring down all over the United Kingdom, HootSuite’s UK owls aren’t letting the drab weather dampen their spirits!

Join in the HootUps from Cardiff to Glasgow and all over the country, including a load of exciting events coming up in June.

A New Record


May 16 2013: HootUp Glasgow was hosted by UK Ambassador Allan Blair Beaton and Scottish diplomats Jennifer Tough, Steve Sefton and Matthew Marley

The Owls joined together with a few Scottish digital agencies and a brilliant new partner venue, 29 Studios.

Incredibly, HootUp GW was the largest UK HootUp ever! A big thanks to all the owls. #HootHoot
