Social Media Week: London 2016

SMW is a worldwide event taking place 18 cities throughout 2016 and a publishing platform that shares insights into how social media and technology are changing business, society and culture around the world.

Social Media Week London is a week long conference that provides the ideas, trends, insights and inspiration to help people and businesses understand how to achieve more in a hyper-connected world. The event features an official event and a series of independent events.

During the event, the attendees will explore the intersection of social technology and creativity with a week of presentations, masterclasses, demos, workshops, conversations, and interactive events.

2016 Global Theme is:

The Invisible Hand: Hidden Forces of Technology (and How We Can Harness it for Good).

It will explore how mobile technology, networked connectivity, data and machine learning, and other technologies are the attributes of a new paradigm that is changing how we connect, consume and communicate.
