We all need a little extra time every now and then. Due to a record number of submissions and overwhelming demand, we’re giving you more time and are extending the event submission deadline to September 5th. For every city (except LA and Chicago), you now have 2 more weeks to get your ideas in and participate in SMW12.

Why should you and your brand take part? Hosting an event during Social Media Week gives you and your organization a chance share your ideas and engage our amazing community. This means you get to amplify your message and have meaningful conversations around topics that matter most to you. We’re looking for startups, small and big agencies, large corporations, NGO’s, government agencies, schools and more.

How does it work? We try to make it easy for you. Fill out the initial application questionnaire to help our local city organizers better understand your goals and event idea. Our local city organizers will review all ideas submitted, so give them a little time. And be ready for some feedback. We may come back with some ideas to take your event to the next level. take a few weeks. If it’s then a fit, we’ll send you detailed instructions on how to publish your event to the schedule! You then are in control. You manage and process registration and can make any changes to the event that are needed.

“This is one of the few events that enables us to connect with our customers and partners globally. We look forward to continued growth and innovation from the Social Media Week team.” -Michael Lazerow, Buddy Media co-founder and CEO
