RTITB are excited to announce that for the first time in the history of the Operator of the Year competition we will be updating both Facebook (facebook.com/opofyear) and Twitter (@opofyear) in real-time as the competition progresses between 10am-3pm, and when the champion is announced at the Gala Dinner after the competition.
During this year’s Operator of the Year competition, we have used social media to great effect to keep the industry and the general public up to date with the latest developments and announcements, as well as share pictures and video of our competitors in action.
There is no doubt that social media plays a huge role in many people’s everyday lives, whether it is through the sharing of personal moments or gaining access to the latest news as it happens, which is why this is a great opportunity to open a window on an often overlooked part of the logistics path and get lift trucks trending. After all, one of the goals of this competition is to highlight the vital work lift truck operators do every day and the important role that safety and correct operation play. By sharing on social media, RTITB hope to make the Grand Final a nationwide event that raises awareness and celebrates excellence.
Of course, just because we’ll be sharing the event online it doesn’t mean that we don’t want to see you there in person! In fact, why not come along and share your thoughts or pictures on Twitter (#rtitbop) and Facebook live from the event? But if you can’t make it in person, please join us online as we celebrate the achievements of our ten worthy finalists.
The team at RTITB look forward to seeing you at the Grand Final.
