Thank You Social Media Week Chicago!
Thank you for making November’s edition of Social Media Week one to remember.
Thank you to our all of our attendees, speakers, partners, volunteers, independent event organizers, and everyone involved in the SMW community for making our November edition of #SMW17 a truly incredible and unforgettable experience.
It was another inspiring week exploring the business, art, science, and future of social media, as well as the fourth and final edition of SMW that brought people together discussed our global theme, “Language and the Machine: Algorithms and the Future of Communication”.
This year’s event would not have been possible without our sponsors: National Geographic, LIVESTRONG.com, Edelman, 4C, DialogTech, Julius, and Tracx
We’d also like to thank our Premium Content Partners: Morton Salt, Pinterest, Crowdtap, as well as all of our Food and Beverage Partners, Content Partners, and Technology Partners for supporting the 8th edition of Social Media Week Chicago.
