Upcoming 2011 Social Media Conferences & Events (June 2011)


 Featured Events

We recently announced a change in date for several events and following discussions with our workshop leaders, Local Chapters hosting the events and several members in the Social Media Club community, we have decided to push the entire Social Media Masters series out two months and change the format into something we believe is more compelling and delivers the greatest value to our participants. We also realized a need to reduce the number of cities in this initial tour to ensure we had the ability to develope the best quality events we could, and will now be focused on producing events in,  

Atlanta – August 26, 2011

Los Angeles – September 9, 2011

New York – September 23, 2011

Toronto – October 7, 2011

With the amount of time we have invested in growing the social media profession, we are extremely fortunate to have relationships with leading thinkers, practitioners and visionaries who will be participating and sharing their insights with the Social Media Masters conference goers across the country. Our standards are extremely high when it comes to the selection of our speakers and rest assured, you will be learning from true social media masters. 

We are finalizing the programs for each city and look forward to sharing more great news with you shortly. 

We are extending all Social Media Club Open members 30% off registration using discount code: SMCOPEN with our Professional members receiving even deeper discounts on these events.  We will honor this discount up 14 days before the day of the event.

Here are some events we encourage you to attend, all of which offer great content and valuable industry discussions, and some even extending SMC member discounts!
