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.

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 build relationships; 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.
And we have you covered in the evenings:
