Networking for Attendees
We understand making connections at Social Media Marketing World is important to you. In fact, 80% of past attendees have told us networking is a significant reason they attend the event.
It’s our goal to help you find your tribe and make deep connections that last well beyond the conference.
We’ve developed several different opportunities – both online and at the event – to help you network easily and successfully.
We work hard to make sure you make connections with people before you even arrive in San Diego. In the months leading up to the event, we’ll make networking easy via:
- Private Networking Group: You’ll gain access to our exclusive private networking group where you can begin making connections with Social Media Marketing World attendees who share your interests. Some of those groups include connections corner, content creation, social strategy, and first-time attendees.
- Pre-event Live Online Meetups: Our Connections Crew will help you maximize your experience at our event with online meetups and tips for in-person networking.

Opening-Night Networking Party
Exclusively for All-Access Tickets! Kick off Social Media Marketing World 2020 in style.
On March 1, 2020, you’ll network with your peers.
It’s a Luau so come prepared for some Hawaiian fun. Enjoy drinks, snacks, luau dancers, shaved ice, giant games, a caricature artist and more!
Enjoy a drink on us, make new friends, and spark conversations at our opening-night networking party.
This party is designed for networking. The moment you enter, you’ll be handed our Networking Bingo card, which makes it very easy for you to quickly meet other people.
Second Night Networking Party
In the evening…we’re convening…Ain’t We Got Fun?
Join us at the SMMW Speakeasy Monday, March 2 for a Roaring 20s party that will be the Cat’s Pajamas! The gang’s all in town and we’ll be hitting the main drag down to Parq Event Center from 8:30-11:30.
This is your chance to get swanky. Doll yourself up as a flapper or a gangster, or come as you are. It’s going to be Gatsby no matter the dress. Just bring yourself and we’ll do the rest. If you need inspiration on what to wear, see this post in our Community group.
Dancing, singing…maybe drinking…Ain’t We Got Fun?
If you’re a hoofer who loves to dance, head upstairs and enjoy some swell tunes with our live band karaoke. A few lucky guys and dolls will have the chance to grab a mic and lead us in song. It’ll be so hotsy-totsy!
Or, if you’re keen for something more low-key, head downstairs to enjoy cool games, conversation, and spirit tasting in our speakeasy lounge. You’ll be able to beat your gums with fellow marketers–even some big cheese speakers.
Be sure to bring your SMMW20 All-Access badge* and ID so we know you’re the real McCoy (and so you can enjoy some of that giggle water). Toodaloo–See you there!
*Roaring 20s party is included with All-Access registration to Social Media Marketing World.
Shuttles will depart from the Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and Omni starting from 8:15PM-11:45PM and will also leave Parq every 15 minutes to bring you back to your hotel!
