Networking like no other event…
This is the event where you’ll make priceless professional connections.
As a social media marketer, you know the value of networking.
We designed this event to enable you to connect with your peers in a way that’s simply not possible online.
Now this is networking!
Here’s what’s in store for you:
Structured networking after keynote speeches and lunch. You’re provided four scheduled daytime opportunities to get to know the people you connect with via social networks—up close and personal. No need to skip presentations to network; we built these breaks into the schedule.
Networking Plaza: Want a place to sit and talk? Thinking about doing some video interviews? Our Networking Plaza is a large centrally located space where you can do some serious networking—on your schedule.
Networking Walks (and runs): Join the early-risers for a morning stroll (or run) while you make new connections.
Marketers getting to know each other…
But wait, there’s more:
