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

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

First, what is this event?

Social Media Marketing World 2014 is the world’s largest physical social media conference dedicated to helping marketers and business owners master social media marketing.


Watch this video for a quick overview.

More than 90 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 Chris Brogan, Mari Smith, Michael Hyatt, Jay Baer, John Jantsch, Michael Stelzner, Amy Porterfield, Mark Schaefer, Steve Farber, Laura Fitton, Brian Clark, Lee Odden, Joe Pulizzi, Nichole Kelly, Pat Flynn, Joel Comm, Viveka von Rosen, Simon Mainwaring, Ted Rubin, Andrea Vahl and Cliff Ravenscraft, just to mention a few!

Check out some of the brands presenting:

There will be 80+ sessions presented in 4 tracks spread over 3 days. Topics will include tips on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, social strategy, community management, podcasting, blogging and video marketing.

We expect to sell out before the event starts on March 26, 2014. People attending represent large and small companies just like yours and some attendees are flying in from places like Australia, Brazil, Norway, United Arab Emirates, India, Peru, France, New Zealand, Israel, Panama, Venezuela, Canada and the United Kingdom.

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 networking walks and runs, and an opening night party planned on the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier. Learn more about the opening night networking party here.
