Social Media Week London is all about the people. This year with over 260 events and 20,000+ tickets booked it was bigger than ever.

Behind the scenes the Chinwag team swells in number as we do our best to tackle the avalanche of administration, emails, logistics and communications that SMWLDN brings with it.

This year we had an exceptional crop of helpers who supported us through what was, to put it mildly, a rather busy few months. We couldn’t have done it without them.
