19 days until SMW Chicago. Watch live or on-demand. Activate free trial now!

The clock is ticking but there’s still time to get involved with SMW13. To get you started, keep in mind that Open & Connected is not just our Global Theme, it’s how Social Media Week works overall! We are an event driven by you, our community.

As our team in Lagos reminds us, companies big and small pitch ideas and develop content that aims to push boundaries, create fresh insight and serve the greater good. But you don’t have to be a giant corporation to submit an event. Artists, student groups, government agencies and other people with great ideas are all invited to submit an event for Social Media Week.

With just 5 weeks left to join as an event partner or speaker, we want to help frame the ways you can get started now.
