The international conference Social Media Week grew over ten times in just two years. In February 2010, over 600 events with over 30.000 visitors took place in nine cities worldwide, including New York, London, and Hong Kong. We’re happy to announce that the Social Media Week will see its Moscow premier September 19 – 23! The main organizor of SMW’s Moscow edition is Strelka Institute for Media, Architecture and Design.
Ever since Strelka Institute opened its doors in 2009, its aim has been to educate a generation of architects, designers, and media specialists on whom the world’s 21st century image will depend. But Strelka is not just an educational center; it’s a platform for events ranging from conferences, master classes, and discussions, to movie broadcasts, spectacles, and parties.
What Strelka does to prepare for SMW Moscow? Currently, we’re determining the final composition of the Advisory Board, the media partners, and the future sponsors. We’re also composing the Activities Program: its final version will be published before July 15, 2011.
