The person you’ve been tweeting with for ages… the LinkedIn connection you should really reconnect with… from one blogger to another… finally the chance to come together with some of Perth’s best social media minds has arrived – and what better way to celebrate then with a beverage or two.

In celebration of #SMPerth’s 5th birthday, we will be having drinks in the Locker Room. That’s right, we’re going to the heart of Optus Stadium for drinks and nibble to celebrate.
