As technology impacts our ability to connect globally in a virtual way, it also enhances our ability to travel globally. At Social Media Week this year, we have two incredible opportunities for you to travel to join us at our events!
- Travel to New York as an SWM Reporter
Win a trip to New York to report on what’s happening at SMW14 in real time! Showcase your creativity in a video on Vine, Youtube or Instagram and tell us why YOU should be the one to share the story of Social Media Week — just be sure to include the hashtag #SMWReporter in your video. Submit your video to the link here or simply share it on Twitter using the hashtag #SMWReporter. The competition is closing February 4th at midnight so get your entry in while you can!
P.S. We are giving away more than a trip — just for sharing this contest with friends you could win a Nokia 1520!
- Bike from Hamburg to Copenhagen with The Social Traveler
If you were having a hard time deciding between SMW Copenhagen and SMW Hamburg, the good news is that you can do both, while raising money for charity! The Social Traveler (Bjorn Troch) describes himself as having three passions: travel, people, and social media. He explores the planet without guidebooks, but rather accepts challenges from blog readers and uses the people he meets along the way to guide his adventure. We challenged The Social Traveler to cycle the 330km from SMW Hamburg to SMW Copenhagen, and now, we want to extend the challenge to you!
In The Social Traveler’s recent trip across Asia, he identified four awesome charitable projects to partner with. Our goal is to raise 1 Euro for each kilometer cycled, so join the cycling team to increase the number of total kilometers! Even if you can’t be a part of the ride, be sure to check out the inspiring work of our charity partners and donate here!
And if you’re in New York, join your other travel junkies at this awesome event: The Rise of Social, Mobile, and Tech in Travel Media. Featuring leaders in the travel blogging and writing world, it’s your chance to find out what’s happening in the future of travel and how you can take part more.
Going local for Social Media Week, but love to travel and want more? There will be sessions at SMW across the globe on the future of travel and social media. From Lagos’s seminar about how online booking is changing the tourist industry in Africa to Hamburgs event to Hamburg’s about brand awareness for travel sites and hotels, register here for these events you won’t want to miss!
