Social Media Week conferences take place simultaneously in multiple cities around the world. The aim of each event is to advance the use and understanding of social media in the corporate, public and non-profit sectors.

The second annual conference will take place between February 1st – 5th, 2010simultaneously in New York City, Berlin, London, San Francisco, Toronto and São Paulo. The five day conference will explore the profound impact that social media has on culture, business communications and society at large.

The week-long, international Social Media Week conference is designed as a series of localized events, which city partners are responsible for organizing. Over the course of the week and in each city, programs will span a variety of formats, ranging from talks, presentations and panel discussions, to interactive workshops, seminars, networking events and drinks receptions.

Each event, including the live stream and backchannel conversations will be hosted on the Social Media Week website, allowing for participants from around the world and across multiple cities to take part in the conference.

“Social media has permeated society and is creating a global community that is unprecedented in scope. Social Media Week embraces this phenomenon and is pioneering the way as a global platform for conversation, connectivity and learning. The conference aims to advance the uses of social media in the corporate, public and non-profit sectors, and engage communities on a local and global level.”
Toby Daniels, founder and organizer of Social Media Week

Social Media Week organizers and local partners will plan some of the events, however just as in 2009, the local business community has been invited to add their own events to the program to broaden the scope and diversity of the conference.

The initial program of events will be published soon, in the meantime, if you would like to get involved, we would love to hear from you.
