Social Media Week Goes Into Action Next Month in 9 Cities
Social Media Week is around the corner, starting on February 7 and it runs through February 11, 2011 in 9 cities: New York, San Francisco, Rome, Paris, Toronto, Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, London and Istanbul.
In 2010, New York-based organizers Crowdcentric hosted over 450 individual events in eleven cities, reaching more than 18,000 attendees with over 200,000 users connecting through the online and mobile experience, generating millions of impressions throughout the social web.
The driving force behind Social Media Week in each respective city is the local city partners. In Toronto, Entrinsic will be returning to produce Social Media Week for the second time. Chinwag will be leading the effort in London. São Paulo-based SixPix Content will produce the Brazilian conference. Social Media Week San Francisco will be co-produced Swirl Integrated Marketing and Social Media Club, and La Netscouade will lead in Paris.
Paris city partner Benoît Thieulin said, “The opportunities to sit together for a moment and think collectively how social media will transform and further our relationships with the world (ourselves, the media, brands, institutions) are still rare. It was natural to La Netscouade, as a leading social media agency, to step up and take care of introducing this global event to Paris and its flowering of initiatives on the social web.”
Milan-based Augmendy, producers of Social Media Week Milan, will also be bringing the experience to Rome. Augmendy leads Marco Montemagno and Marco Antonio Masierisaid, “We are absolutely delighted that Social Media Week Milan was such a success. Over 5,000 people attended our ninety events during the week, with 20,000 more people visiting our headquarters, proving that 2010 is the tipping point for growth and development in the Italian web world. We’re looking forward to an even bigger event in Rome in February.”
