Mayor Ford Extends Greetings and Warm Welcome to Torontonians Celebrating Foursquare Day on April 16th, 2012

On April 16th local social media enthusiasts are gathering worldwide to celebrate the third annual Foursquare Day at The Pilot on 22 Cumberland Street in Yorkville.  Mayor Rob Ford recently reached out to organizers of the Toronto event to show his support for the event and the popular location-based social networking platform.

"Foursquare Day in Toronto is a time to recognize the contribution Foursquare has made to businesses across our city and acknowledge the significance oí social media in our daily lives, ” said Mayor Ford.  “As someone who understands business, I value the important impact social media applications, such as Foursquare, have on local businesses and our city‘s economic growth."

Foursquare Day will be celebrated across the globe in more than 150 major cities, with many city mayors worldwide providing similar proclamations to Toronto’s Mayor Ford. However, Toronto Foursquare Day organizers consider their city the ‘poster child’ for the annual event due to the correlation of Toronto's main area code 4-16 and the event day (4/16).

Many local sponsors have are providing some fantastic giveaways for the event including prize packs and giveaways from The Fairmont Royal York, Jugnoo, iSkin and ContactMonkey. Event organizers have also received large support from Creemore Springs this year who has secured the event venue and will be offering additional hospitality highlights.

The Toronto-founded Location Based Marketing Association has joined for the second year in a row as a Media and Promotions partner. Asif Khan, President and Founder of the Location Based Marketing Association, sees the event as holding much more stake in the continuing growth of mobile marketing on a global scale:

“Foursquare has been leading the charge in location-based connectivity between brands and consumers, and we are only just scratching the surface as this technology becomes more integrated into the broader marketing media mix.”
