Maui Tweetup

We had an incredible Maui TweetUp at AK’s Restaurant.
1237 Lower Main
St. Wailuku, Maui.
The luncheon was great and reasonably priced.
We filled the restaurant with Twitter friends and
made valuable new contacts. @roxannedarling 
and @shane were on Maui working with @PeterLiu47
and Liza @AMauiBlog and other bloggers on
#Malama Maui which includes a series of events
which started at Ulupalakua Ranch and continues
at the Ritz-Karlton Kapalua for Celebration of The Arts and
The Maui Ag Festival on Saturday April 3, 2010.
It’s all about sustainable living on Maui and caring
for the land and the people. Follow their blogs for
all the details and events.
@tommyrusso publisher of MauiTime, Judi @tikitales
author of When I am Quiet on Maui and other children’s
books were there. Judi shared some of her creations.
@daniakatz sales director of Edible Hawaiian Islands
magazine said it was her first Tweetup! She loved it.
Dania will have a booth at the Maui Ag Festival.
The get togethers with so many entrepreneurs is
stimulating, inspiring, exciting and so much fun.
@DJSMOOK is loved by all. I met filmmakers,
other designers like myself, financial advisor and
start up business manager @GraceDelivers a
branding expert and Ian Blakeslee creativity coach.
Thanks everyone for the wonderful Tweetup!

The Maui Tweetup

Liza @AMauiBlog puts it all together. She’s wearing my Taro Leaves Design!
So pretty in red.This was my first TweetUP and it was very exciting to meet so many people.We met at The Queen Ka`ahumanu Shopping Center Food Court on Maui. A great location to meet. I love our mall. It is the only open air yet covered mall I know. So refreshing and a view of the Harbor and West Maui Mountains too. We were next to the Japanese Edo Restaurant. Everyone shared businesscards and I gave out some of my books and t-shirts.
Here I am with @lamourwedding (Geanelli)
@Peterliu47 signing in and @ucsmiles.
This nice lady Yuki Lei Sugimura puts together events such as The Ulupalakua Thing! @ucsmiles (Cindy) was raised on Molokai.
@jalove (jamie) and Chris Norberg, Web Designer
We all introduced ourselves and @djsmooks arrived last. He is the one with the “Get Some ” T-shirt. Everyone had an interesting background. Then I learned that Judi Riley author of “When I Am Quiet On Maui” and “When I Am Quiet On Oahu” arrived after most of us had gone. So, Liza said a total of 17 of us had made this #MauiTweetup.
This couple Cindy and Kris @MauiByPhoto were celebrating their anniversary.
Geanelli is a wedding consultant here on Maui by appointment only.
Her company is L’Amour Wedding.
Her husband Richard Lewis was also present.
There was Dan O’Brien video marketing specialist of Mesh Media LLC. and the Maui Visitor Channel.
It was a great Tweetup! I met @raatz too!
This was really great and inspiring networking.
