Want Your Social Media Week Fix Early? Get Involved With The Digital Mission & SMW NYC


As you may know, Social Media Week London will be returning to your streets in September 2013, however if you can’t quite wait that long then why not be a part of Social Media Week NYC in February where Chinwag will be joined by some great companies for a Digital Mission trip to New York.

SMW NYC looks set to be a great week with its global theme of Open & Connected: Principles for a Collaborative World being explored by speakers including Ben Kaufman, founder & CEO of Quirky, Cindy Gallop and the MakeLoveNotPorn.tv team, and Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit.

There are so many ways to get involved including interactive installations, classes and a main stage with programming centered on the Architects, Inventors and Collaborators changing our world, as well as the following hubs that will be hosting events during the week:

Advertising & Marketing Hub: JWT, a leading global advertising agency, will host conversations on the impact of creativity, collaboration and community in the world of marketing and brand communications.

Lifestyle & Culture Hub: No one does media quite like Hearst Corporation, the perfect place to talk arts, fashion, entertainment and cultural trends. Their mission is to inform, entertain, and inspire, which they have done for 125 years!

Business and Entrepreneurship Hub: A multinational mass media corporation with a premier site for business and financial market news.

Society and Social Impact Hub: 92Y is the city’s premiere nonprofit cultural and community center, and they’ve been all about social good since 1874! We couldn’t think of a better home for conversations on the role of social, digital and mobile media and their interplay with social change than 92Y’s downtown venue, 92YTribeca.
