New York, NY, December 03, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Social Media Week's second annual conference will take place between February 1st - 5th, 2010 simultaneously 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.
"Social media 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. We have designed the conference to engage communities on a local and global level and to advance the uses of social media in the corporate, public and non-profit sectors."
- Toby Daniels, founder and organizer of Social Media Week
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 Twitter 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 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 in each city is still being finalized, however there are many ways for people to participate in this unique initiative. For further information and to get involved, please visit http://socialmediaweekny.com.
Social Media Week's inaugural 2009 conference took place in New York over the course of five days and involved more than 35 events throughout the city, including events hosted by New York Times, Nielsen, Razorfish and Wired.
“One of the most lively, intellectual, humorous, and thought-provoking events I’ve ever had the honor to be a part of.” Ian Schafer, Founder & CEO of Deep Focus
In total, over 2,000 people attended the unprecedented conference, while an additional 5,000 people experienced the events live on this website and participated in the backchannel conversations via Twitter and Facebook.
