Top Seven Reasons To Attend Social Media 301


1. Advanced 301 conference now three years running

Social Media 101 was about establishing a presence.

At Social Media 301, attendees will hear best-practices with social engagement inside enterprise-level companies and within social media agencies working with both B2B and B2C clientele. This is where

theories are put into practice and results are measurable. This is Social Media 301 where the content and takeaways will be the most quality, useful and valuable material you will receive from any similar event this year.

It’s an ideal location to connect with the thought-leaders in customer engagement!

Attendees and speakers will have the chance to connect and mingle throughout the conference and directly following. Additionally, with the All-Conference pass, a select group of attendees will join the speakers and panelists for a hosted dinner off-site for fantastic connection and conversation. We’ve balanced this unique dinner to give attendees a chance for 1:1 time with the presenters.

It was a sell-out crowd for 201 last year (yes, extra chairs were brought in from other rooms!) and we will sell out again so act now – go to Social Media 301 to register today. Early-bird pricing is available through May 16th!

Put simply this will be an incredible conference with a lot of substance, minus the fluff.
