Cheers! #SMWLDN 2019 is a Wrap!
Thank you to everyone who had a hand in making #SMWLDN 2019 our best yet!
We are excited to announce the first round of leaders who will bring our 2020 theme HUMAN.X to life at the Broad stage this June (17-18).
On behalf of the entire Social Media Week team, we want to thank all of our attendees, speakers, partners, volunteers, and everyone in the SMW community for making the 10th annual Social Media London conference such a successful and inspiring event.
We’re tremendously grateful for the platform our programs offer and the opportunities they present for us to come together as an industry and identify the opportunities we have to ensure marketing is a force for good in the world. Though this event marks the end of our 2019 flagship series, we’re confident his year’s global theme, “Stories: With Great Influence Comes Great Responsibility,” will continue to fuel insights into how we can ensure our stories leave a lasting impression.
Over the course of the two-day program, we hosted two main stages, a brand new Brand Leaders Stage, our inaugural London Academy Program, the Rising Stars in Brand Leadership Awards including 12 recipients, 1.5k+ attendees, and more than 100 sessions and speakers. These panels featured a number of leading brands, platforms agencies, and publishers including Social Chain, TikTok, BuzzFeed, Instagram, Snap Inc., Twitter, Google, and That Lot, and a diverse lineup of storytellers that included several influencers with over 37M combined followers.
This year’s event would not have been possible without our sponsors: Grey, Julius, Karmarama, Takumi, Social Chain, Sprinklr, Meltwater, Linkfluence, NetBase, YouGov, Socialbakers, Talkwalker, NatGeo, Grey, TikTok, Tribe, Tommy, Storyful, Zoho, Open Influence, CreatorIQ, YouScan, Sotrender, DIT and PlayPlay.
We’d also like to thank our Content Partners, Media Partners, and Technology Partners for supporting #SMWLDN 2019.
