Networking like no other event…
This is the event where you’ll make priceless professional connections.
“I loved everything but I was so surprised at how much I got out of things that happened outside the sessions – the networking and amazing people I met were incredible,” said attendee Darnelle O’Brien.
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!
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.
Table Talks: We provide dedicated tables for you to meet for lunch and talk about topics of interest.
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 Ambassadors: We have dedicated staff to help you make the connections you want to make!
Networking Power Walks (and runs): Join the early-risers for a morning stroll (or run) while you make new connections.
Name Badge Interest Stickers: We provide interest stickers on your name badge to help facilitate networking.
But wait, there’s more:
Opening-Night Networking Party: USS Midway Aircraft Carrier
Kick off Social Media Marketing World 2017 in style with an exclusive event aboard a Naval aircraft carrier—the USS Midway—the world’s largest ship until 1955!
On March 22nd, you’ll network with the top social media pros surrounded by warplanes.
Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime networking opportunity as you experience giant hangar bays, view San Diego from the 4-acre flight deck, fly flight simulators and explore this massive ship.
Enjoy food, warplanes and conversation at our opening-night networking party.
This party is designed for networking. The moment you enter the ship, you’ll be handed our Networking Bingo card, which makes it very easy for you to quickly meet other people.
In addition to food and live music, you can also take part in flight simulators and be toured into the belly of the aircraft carrier by retired military personnel.
It’s a short walk from the event venue (and we’ll provide shuttles) to the USS Midway where you’ll join 4,000 of your peers for an unforgettable experience.
