Once again it is Social Media Week in London and there is an awful lot going on, with plenty of spaces free still too. We’re both organising, attending and speaking at a host of different events during the week.
You can catch up with us here:
Monday 24th September
This regular event is a must attend if you are in B2B marketing. Hosted by Kerry Bridge, Neville Hobson and Simon Hughes, there will be a mix of keynotes and ‘unconference’ sessions which always make for an engaging event. If you miss out, you can catch the keynotes again on the For Immediate Release podcast.
Also, if you can’t make it during the day head to the Tweetup in the evening. The venue is TBC, but likely somewhere around Microsoft’s offices in Victoria (as that’s where the Huddle is taking place.)
Follow @b2bhuddle on twitter for more clues.
Tuesday 25th September
I’m speaking on a panel session at this event, where we’ll be trying to answer questions for property folks such as:
- What is the best way to promote storage on social media to landlords and tenants?
- What are the benefits of the various platforms?
- How to use Facebook better for Estate Agency?
If you are in the world of property and construction, this just might be a good place for you to pick up some hints and tips and to learn from the experiences of the speakers. I’m parrticularly interested to hear Melanie Simon from James Pendleton Estate Agents.
Strictly speaking, this one isn’t part of Social Media Week, but it is a conference we have produced for a client that’s taking place on Tuesday so where better to shout about it. There’s a stellar line-up of speakers and if you want to learn more about how to make advertising more effective, there is still time to book a ticket.
Wednesday 26th September
If you are interested in finding out how to really use the power of facebook’s open graph (we’re talking more than a company page here, or striving for likes) then this workshop is for you. It’s all about how you as a marketer or developer can use every aspect of a person’s activity on facebook, across multiple apps, to create a new experience; a new level of engagement.
It’s probably the one I’m looking forward to the most, not just because of the content, but also the format: presentations followed by a hands on workshop too.
This is the next edition of the regular London Bloggers Meetup events we organise. This time we’ll be looking at video and how to use it to ramp up the impact of a blog. We’ve got guest speakers from professional video producers, to smartphone warriors, vloggers and some research from event hosts Unruly Media too.
This one should be a cracker – not least because Unruly Media are paying for all of the beer.
Thursday 27th September
I’m co-hosting this event with Bernie Mitchell from The People Who Share. It’s being held at Google Campus and is all about how to achieve robust economic advantages through social collaborations i.e. how designing our businesses as ‘social businesses’ will enable us to grow more sustainably in both B2B and B2C markets.
I’m hugely looking forward to this one.
Friday 28th September
It will be needed by then after all these events and of course keeping on top of our clients too.
There are literally hundreds of events taking place during the week. You can find out more here. Get involved. There will not be another chance to see so many high quality events about social media in London again until September 2013!
