Official SMWLDN Hubs
There is a very limited amount of space available in this September’s Hubs for some of the best Social Media Week London Sept ’12 events.
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 & Marketing
- Business & Enterprise
- Innovation & Entrepreneurship
- Sport, Entertainment & Culture
- Media, Mobile & Lifestyle

If your event is selected into a SMWLDN Hub, there may 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.
