The world of social media has been a great way of bringing people together allowing you to make new connections and contacts more easily than ever.
At #SMWF we aim to go one better than that – offering you numerous ways not just to make such connections but to put faces and personalities to the names on your Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn connections lists too. Our networking tools and events will help you build your network yet further as you take advantage of the high level, yet intimate event where we are offering you the chance to meet over 500 of your fellow marketing leaders.
Networking breakfast & lunch
It’s easy to pass people by during presentations there is little chance to make new connections. So we are giving you the chance instead to meet and greet new contacts in our networking breakfast and lunch sessions. These sessions will allow you to meet new names in a more informal, relaxed environment whilst also tucking into some tasty food too.
Private LinkedIn group to make pre-event connections
As a business networking tool LinkedIn has to be one of the best. Ahead of the show we will be creating and managing a private LinkedIn group that will enable you to make pre-event connections with the people that interest you. An exclusive opportunity for attendees, speakers and exhibitors the LinkedIn group will allow you to start conversations and connect with fellow attendees before the show.
As well as offering you the chance to meet like-minded people over food we will also be offering you the chance to meet in an even more informal environment with the chance to unwind at the same time. Our networking drinks take place on the evening of the first day of the show in the demo area, offering you the perfect chance to catch up after a day of learning whilst also having a well-earned, relaxing drink.
In between the breakfasts, lunches and drinks of course comes the simple chance to grab a sit down during the conference breaks. Our Connect Lounge offers you exactly that opportunity to for some chilled out time either on your own or, if you are making the most of your opportunities at the show, with one of your new contacts.
Ahead of the show we will also launch the #SMWF show app with all the information you need to make the most of your time at the show as well as the ability to create your own schedule, create meetings and connect and message those you want to meet at the event.
#SMWFChat Pre-event tweet chat with speakers
We have a great line-up of speakers for #SMWF and the agenda and speaker base is still building. At the show itself there is always the chance to put your own questions to our speakers following their presentations but sometimes there just isn’t time to get your question in.
To ensure you get the answers to the questions you have a selection of our speakers will take part in a tweet chat answering attendee questions using the hashtag #SMWFchat ahead of the show. Stay tuned for updates on when these chats will be taking place.
These are just a few of the networking opportunities available at the show. To make the most of them make sure you are there by registering here.
