It's Back! Digital Mission returns to New York for Social Media Week NYC, Feb 2013
Digital Mission will be returning with its fourth expedition to New York next Spring, from 18th - 22nd February 2013 to take full advantage of the 150+ events taking place during Social Media Week New York.
Following on from 2010's successful Digital Mission to NYC trip, this Mission to New York will co-incide with Social Media Week New York. We'll be putting together a Mission Programme (see more below) but we'd also like to make Digital Mission as open and collaborative as possible, so we'll also be holding a Meetup on Thursday 22nd November where you'll be able to suggest anything you'd like to see included in the trip.
Digital Mission to NYC London Mixer (Thurs 22nd Nov)
The Digital Missions work best when they're built around the companies taking part and with this in mind, we'd love to hear your plans for NYC, how a mission could help you, who you'd like to meet and anything else that'd make tackling the US easier.
To kick things off, we're hosting a Digital Mission NYC Mixer in London on Thursday 22nd Nov where we'll hear from Digital Mission alumni on how they tackled the US, what worked, what didn't, what's important and what's not!
Followed by a run-down of what's in the pipline plus an informal discussion, where we'd love to get your input.
Speakers include Scott Button, CEO and Co-Founder of the hugely successful Unruly and more to be announced soon. Oh, and there'll be a few drinks, too.
