Social Media Week is a “distributed global conference” with multiple events happening around Los Angeles and the world from September 20-24. The conference is a global platform to connect people, content and conversations around emerging trends in social and mobile media. Events are free, hosted at iconic locations and cover a broad spectrum of topics, industries, causes, etc. The previous conference in February 2010 took place across 6 cities, (Berlin, London, New York, San Francisco, Sao Paulo and Toronto). New York itself hosted over 80 events in one week with partners and sponsors such as the New York Times, iCrossing, Techvibes, Conde Nast, Wired, Sony Electronics, LinkedIn, Cisco, Time Inc, MoMA, Meebo, PepsiCo, Mashable, Fast Company, Razorfish, WholeFoods and MTV.
This fall, there will be five cities participating. In addition to LA, cities include Mexico City, Bogota, Milan and Buenos Aires. We are actively seeking partners and sponsors to be integral parts of the conference experience. There are a variety of ways for brands, organizations and individuals to be involved, including financial sponsorship, media partnerships and in-kind donations of venues and technology. In addition, anyone can host an approved event and benefit from the overall conference promotion. Financial sponsorships range from $5,000 to $150,000 and can be customized to meet the needs of the brands. Feel free to be in touch if you have any questions or interest.
