Social Media Examiner has been working hard to bring you our third-annual physical conference.
And we've come up with two fun ways for you to get involved.
First, what is this event?
Social Media Marketing World 2015 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 100 of the world's most respected social media marketing experts will share their strategies with you—and you can meet them face to face.
Imagine chatting with Guy Kawasaki, Mari Smith, Chris Brogan, Jay Baer, Ann Handley, Michael Stelzner, Michael Hyatt, Laura Fitton, Joe Pulizzi, Mark Schaefer, Cliff Ravenscraft, Nichole Kelly, Ted Rubin, Chalene Johnson, Darren Rowse, Paul Rand, Joel Comm, Lee Odden, Kim Garst, Martin Shervington, Marcus Sheridan, Gini Dietrich, Pat Flynn, John Jantsch, Christopher Penn, Tom Webster, Andrea Vahl, Dan Miller, Steve Spangler, Ekaterina Walter, Pam Moore, Jason Miller, Todd Wheatland, Steve Dotto, Sue Zimmerman, Peg Fitzpatrick, Brian Clark—and many, many more.
Your presenters also include top social media marketers from brands such as LinkedIn, Whole Foods, Adobe, KLM, Century 21, Cisco, Tyson Foods, Cox, Citrix, Save-A-Lot, Cabela's, BMC Software and the Boston Celtics. These world-class experts will be sharing their in-the-trenches knowledge and experience from a variety of industries and types of businesses.
You'll choose from 100+ pitch-free sessions presented in 7 social media marketing tracks (you get access to all of them). Pick up actionable ideas to improve your marketing with Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, visual marketing and SlideShare. Discover new social strategies; tips for including podcasting, blogging and video in your content marketing mix; measurement techniques that work; a glimpse at what's coming up in the quickly evolving realm of social media; and real-world solutions to issues you face as a corporate or small business marketer.
One of the best parts of Social Media Marketing World is the opportunity to network with 2,500 fellow marketers. We've built networking right into the schedule, with dedicated networking times after lunches and keynote sessions, an enormous Networking Plaza where you can connect with experts and peers between sessions, networking walks and runs, and two networking parties, including the Opening Night Networking Party aboard the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier and Social Beach Networking Party, an indoor Southern California beach experience.
