Earlier this year in February, Social Media Week London saw 178 events take place, hosted by 97 wonderful event partners. 391 speakers shared their knowledge, thoughts, ideas and opinions with 15,000 attendees and 10,000 online viewers.
Now it’s your chance to get involved again! Social Media Week London is back for Round Two this September (24th – 28th) and it’s finally time for you to start submitting your events…
How Do I Submit An Event?
The very first thing you need to do is download and read this document – “Instructions for Hosting SMWLDN 2012 Events“. This explains the process in detail, covering all of the below and should answer any questions you might have:
- Selecting an Event Topic
- Choosing an Event Format
- Selecting Speakers
- Briefing your Speakers
- Choosing a Location / Venue
- Event Submission, Scheduling & RSVP
- Application to Hold Event in an Official SMWLDN Hub
- Event Hashtag (Twitter)
- Promoting Your Event
- Producing Your Event
- Streaming Your Event
Please note, we’re a small team and there’s a limit on the volume of enquries we’re able to handle. With this in mind, we’d really appreciate it if you could read the Instructions document before emailing us as it should cover any questions you have.
Once you’re ready to submit your event, head over to the Social Media Week London website – you’ll need to sign in or register, and then submit your event!
Official SMWLDN Hubs
If you would like to apply for the chance for your event to be accepted into an Official SMWLDN Hub, once you’ve submitted your event via the above link, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your event description and why your event should be eligible.
Hub themes we are looking at include:
- Advertising and Marketing Hub
- Business and Innovation Hub
- Olympics and Sports Hub
- Culture and Creativity Hub
- ‘How To’ Hub
If your event is selected into a SMWLDN Hub, there will be costs involved to cover PA/AV, catering, venue space, etc. However, all events held in SMW Hubs will be promoted via SMWLDN and Chinwag channels.
Other Ways to Get Involved
We’re also on the hunt for office space for SMWLDN HQ and are also offering Work Experience opportunities for SMWLDN Sept ’12.
If you’re interested in sponsorship packages, providing venue space, speaking opportunities or volunteering (not work experience), please head over to our Get Involved page and complete the relevent from.
