Social Media Week London – picks for #EventProfs

Tomorrow the Social Media Week London madness begins!

I attended the event in the past two years and will try to attend as many events possible this year as well. The Social Media Week is an event concept and brand. During this week other events take place in major cities around the world and some of them are even in live stream. While most of the Social Media Week London events take place in central London, the week can be very hectic so it is necessary to plan your time very strategically and focus on the information that will bring you the most value. While you can purchase a weekly pass and attend exclusive events, there are also free of charge, independent events taking place.

As every year, I will attend events that have relation to the events industry and encourage event professionals to attend regardless your current knowledge on the topic. When I first attended, my blog was still very small and I didn’t even know that one day it will grow to be what it is today. I met lots of people working in digital marketing, IT, entrepreneurs, CEO of multinational companies and got inspired to improve my blog and take it to the next level.

I just checked out this year’s programme and happy to share with you some of the Social Media Week London picks for event professionals:
