Social Media Week Bristol Returning In Feb 2018

Published on Wednesday, 29th November 2017, contributed by AMBITIOUS

Global conference, Social Media Week has announced its return to Bristol from 26th February – 2nd March 2018. One of 25 cities worldwide to host Social Media Week, Bristol is the only city in the UK outside of London to get involved.

The 2018 edition of Social Media Week Bristol will have a curated stream of inspirational events, talks and seminars. It promises to be as impressive as the inaugural Social Media Week Bristol held in November 2016 which trended live on Twitter, included keynotes from Facebook, Buzzfeed, Twitter, Glassdoor and Yahoo, a 50-strong events programme attended by 1,500 delegates from over 80 different brands and businesses and visitors from as far afield as Austin, Texas. 

Presented by Business West, Bristol Media, and Destination Bristol, Social Media Week Bristol provides a global collaborative and innovative platform to showcase the South West’s expertise as well as providing grass roots opportunities for networking, knowledge sharing and engagement with the wider business community.  

The event will bring together key players that contribute to that knowledge and also seek to facilitate collaboration with businesses and enterprises that have yet to fully realise the potential of social media. It has events tailored to businesses and professionals who want to further their understanding of emerging technology, mobile and social media and sessions dedicated to those who are already at the cutting edge of new trends.

The event includes a stellar line up of industry support from agencies e3, Fat Media, Noisy Little Monkey, Prophecy Unlimited, saint nicks, True, SearchStar, Synergy, The Agency Works, and city newcomers noble studios. Partner and trade organisations such as Digital Marketing Association (DMA), PRCA and Business Marketing Club (BMC) have pledged financial support for the event as well as sector recruiter, ADLIB.

Social Media Week which commemorates its 10th anniversary in 2018 will have the global theme, “Closer” which will explore the intensifying conflict between community and individualism.

The event programme will be announced the first week of January and tickets will go on sale soon after. If you would like to be alerted when the schedule goes live, please visit  https://smwbristol.co.uk to register.
