For the last several months we have been keeping a secret from all of you and it has been killing us!
We are thrilled to announce we are partnering with our friends at Social Media Today to produce The Social Shake-Up Conference. You are most likely already familiar with Social Media Today but just in case you are not, it is a thriving, independent, 150,000+ member community of PR, marketing, advertising, and other professionals whose thorough understanding of social media is mission-critical.
What is The Social Shake-Up?
A conference and networking event focusing specifically on the needs of enterprise level businesses who are looking to evolve beyond a business with a social media policy into a true social business.
We recognize that your enterprise level business has unique needs and challenges when it comes to social, local and mobile. That you need a dedicated event where you can network, discuss and learn from your peers, thought leaders and vendors in the social business world.
What kind of content will the conference offer?
The conference will include four keynotes with world class speakers. Stay tuned for those announcements soon. We will offer several half-day, in-depth workshops and six tracks of break-out sessions covering: Big Data, Community and Customers, Content and Marketing, Mobile, Strategy & The C Suite, and The Social Organization.
Here are a few of the topics to be covered in the break-outs:
- The 360 Customer: How Customer Care and Marketing Can Share and Use Data to Deliver a Better Experience
- Stop Telling Me to Think Like a Publisher: Content Production Models for Brands
- Throwing Open the Floodgates: Empowering Employees, Your Most Passionate Ambassadors
- Playing with Lawyers: Social Media Governance
- Frankenmarketer: The Expanding Skillset of the Marketer of the Future (my personal favorite!)
You can view the entire current schedule here.
Will there be networking opportunities?
Absolutely, tons of them! We have several informal networking events scheduled in the mornings, afternoons and evenings as well as a two hour “speed dating” period where you can set appointments with other attendees and vendors you have pre-selected to meet with before the event.
Will there be vendors?
Yes, but floor space is limited so if you are interested in participating as a sponsoring vendor please contact Patti right away at Patti@blogworldexpo.com or call 858.309.4747 ext. 109
When and where will it happen?
September 15 – 17, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta Georgia.
What does it cost?
A full access pass is $1,997 but if you are one of the first 100 people to register by May 10th you can save $1,000 and get your pass for $997!
When Can I register?
When our friends at Social Media Today polled their community and asked if they wanted to attend an event like this, the response was an overwhelming yes. We have limited space for our inaugural event and it will sell out. So please register early.
Stay tuned to The Social Shake-Up site and our blog for more speaker and sponsor announcements over the upcoming days and weeks.
