Social Media Week New York (#SMWNYC) celebrates its 10th annual conference in 2018. To mark the occasion, organizers Crowdcentric Media are launching a new global edition of the conference which will now take place in New York City during the week of April 24-27 (The event was previously held in February).

Passes go on sale from Tuesday, July 18 at 12pm ET. #SMWNYC will be a significantly improved and enhanced version of the 2017 event, with a venue that can accommodate twice as many attendees, a significantly upgraded exhibitor marketplace experience and a premium upgrade option for professionals who are looking to get more out of the conference experience.

According to Toby Daniels, Founder and Executive Director of Social Media Week, April is the perfect time to host a global edition of the conference.

“We’ve wanted to take #SMWNYC to the next level for some time and 2018 seems the perfect time to do it. Spring in New York is a magical time of year and this new date together with a significantly bigger venue will help us accommodate more attendees, especially those that were unable to attend this year due to the event selling out and those looking to travel from overseas.”
