We’re beyond excited to share some huge announcements with you today!

First, we’re thrilled to announce that the inimitable Gary Vaynerchuk will be joining our founder Toby Daniels on stage for the closing keynote on May 7th.

It’s unlikely you’ve not heard of him, but for the uninitiated Gary is one of the most influential people in social media and digital marketing over the past 10 years. He’s the Chairman of VaynerX, CEO and Co-Founder of VaynerMedia, a full-service digital agency servicing Fortune 500 clients across the company’s four locations and author of five New York Times best-selling books including “Crushing It!: How Great Entrepreneurs Build Business and Influence-and How You Can, Too.”

Gary rose to prominence in the late ‘90s after establishing one of the first e-commerce wine sites, WineLibrary, a family business that he helped his father grow from 4 to 60MM in sales. Today, he has amassed a huge social media audience across several platforms including TikTok where he has over 3M followers.

In addition to confirming our closer for #SMWNYC 2020, we’re also over the moon regarding the newest additions to the agenda, which we are also releasing today, including:
