Want to win a free ticket to the industry’s largest social media marketing conference of the year?

Social Media Examiner has worked hard to bring you our very first physical conference.

And we’ve come up with a fun way to get you involved.

First, what is this event?

Social Media Marketing World 2013 is the world’s largest physical social media conference dedicated to help marketers and business owners master social media marketing.


Watch this video for a quick overview.

Over 60 of the world’s most respected social media marketing experts will share their strategies with you—and you can meet them face to face.

Presenters include Guy Kawasaki, Mari Smith, Chris Brogan, Jay Baer, Mitch Joel, John Jantsch, Michael Stelzner, Dave Kerpen, Lee Odden, Mark Schaefer, Mario Sundar, Cliff Ravenscraft, Jesse Stay, Joe Pulizzi, Michael Brito, Marcus Sheridan, Ric Dragon, Brian Carter, Amy Porterfield, Nichole Kelly, Derek Halpern and Pat Flynn, just to mention a few!

Check out some of the brands presenting:

There will be 49 sessions presented in 5 tracks spread over 2 days. Topics will include tips on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, social strategy, the psychology of social media, measuring social activities, community management, selling with social and content marketing.

We expect to sell out before the event starts on April 7, 2013. People attending represent large and small companies just like yours and some attendees are flying in from places like Australia, New Zealand, Peru, India and Ireland.

One of the best parts of this year’s conference is the cool networking opportunities. Not only will we have a Networking Plaza where you can connect with experts and peers between sessions and during dedicated networking times, but we also have two parties planned that are designed for professional networking. Learn more about the Networking Cruise and the Opening Night Networking Party here.
