Global organizers Crowdcentric have announced today that Social Media Week events will take place in more than 20 cities on six continents across four worldwide events in 2015.
In addition to several returning cities, including New York, Social Media Week will take place for the first time in Jakarta, Mexico City, Santiago, and Cairo. To further deepen the engagement with their global community, Social Media Week will be hosted four times in 2015, by adding two new editions in June and November of 2015.
In 2015, SMW will host events in more than 20 cities across four editions, including:
Throughout 2015 and in every city, Social Media Week will explore its global theme, Upwardly Mobile: The Rise Of The Connected Class, a year long examination of how technology will impact that way we live, work and create in a connected world, and how new ideas, innovations and break-through technologies will lead to meaningful changes in our lives.
Entering its 7th year, SMW has brought together more than 200,000 people across more than 100 conferences on six continents and connected millions of people online around changes in human connectivity and the impact it is having on society, culture and major economies around the world.
“We are at the very beginning of a seismic, societal shift being driven by the technology around us and together we must work to gain a deeper understanding of how we can achieve more in a future where more than 6 billion people on the planet will be able to connect and communicate.” said Toby Daniels, Founder & Executive Director of Social Media Week and CEO of New York based Crowdcentric. “This is why we continue to build SMW, it’s why we are inundated each year with new cities wanting to join us, and it’s why we are more excited about the future of SMW than ever before.”
Through this expanded evolution, Social Media Week looks forward to an amazing year in 2015. Through engaging, entertaining, educational and diverse content and experiences, SMW will discover how our connected world helps us all achieve more and live more productive lives.
“SMW Mexico 2015 is the right event at the right time. Society, business, entrepreneurship, digital art and activism are talking, using, evolving, needing, challenging Social Media,” said Paula Cutuli, Founder of Soulnet and event partner for Social Media Week Mexico City. “Mexico City is a vibrant environment, open for hosting great speakers, both locally and internationally, and the venues are simply the best. Our goal is to bring great workshops, sharing latest trends and generate a space of training and discussion of all the players involved in using technology to improve our connected lives.”
